Basically, anywhere on a stage that isn’t behind red tape is available for viewing the stages (yellow tape). As for camping and restaurant information, suggest trying http://www.newfoundlandlabrador.com/, that has a bunch of good locations in the areas we’ll be running. Actual stage information won’t be released until later in the summer, with road close times about a month out from the event.
Difference is that Fast Tour takes in the entire event…so over a week of activities, which include Registration/Tech Day, evening car shows, social events, and of course the stages. Quick Tour takes in one day minimum but up to three days of on-stage activities. You can join mid-week or at the start of the event. Basically allows you to experience Targa on a budget and see if you’d like to do it for the full time the following year.February 14, 2016 at 1:52 pm in reply to: New Brunswick Racer hoping to make 2016 but goal of 2017. #903
Don’t lower the car. You won’t even make it off the boat without ripping something off the front end if you are driving it over. If anything, increase the height or stiffen the shocks a bit. Good shocks are a must. If you are entering Targa, having the cage built is the best route. Our tech adviser would be able to suggest the best route on that front. And you’re only allowed 6 tires for the whole event. By having 2 different sets on the car, you are already limiting yourself to a single spare for each set. Once they are used, you’ll then be given time penalties (fairly heavy too) for each additional tire you use. Just use the same tires on the vehicle and that’ll give you a couple spares.
Good place to start Brian! Easier to contact us directly though if you want specific questions answered.
Thanks for the post! Ok, pick your questions off one by one here:
FT is the correct first step if you are doing this slow and steady, with your final aim of doing Targa division in the future. You might do FT this year then next year move right up to Targa if you feel comfortable with it. So yeah, so far you are doing it “right”!
350Z is fine for FT. Plenty of pip to it and it is a super sick car. Will be a nice addition to the car show in Torbay and Clarenville too.
You don’t need to do anything to the car. If you feel you need to raise the car a tiny bit due to the road conditions, go for it. But, other than that, you should be fine with whatever set-up you’d have in the vehicle. You don’t need a cage. It is for any road-legal vehicle. Basic safety add on’s such as a fire extinguisher, emergency triangles and proper helmets for both the driver/co-driver. You don’t need anything else added to the car.
Feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 722-2413 if you want to chat about it, or better yet, if you want to enter right now! You’ll have a ball!
Thanks for the post Jesse. I’m sure if anyone is looking for someone like yourself, they’ll also respond to your post. Good luck!
