Subaru Canada, a long-time participant and supporter of the Targa Newfoundland international rally ever since its inception in 2002, recently announced the return of a broad ranging incentive and support program for Subaru competitors, their immediate families, and for Targa event staff.
The Subaru Canada program, implemented in recognition of the fact that Subaru products have competed in every Targa Newfoundland, sets out various incentives and awards for Subaru participants. Participants and/or any immediate family member (mother, father, spouse, son or daughter) who purchase or lease a new Subaru from January 1 – December 31, 2016 will be eligible for a C$750.00 rebate. This rebate is also being made available to the Targa event staff.
Participants who use any model of Subaru for entry into any of the 4 main categories within Targa Newfoundland (Open, Modern, Classic, and Grand Touring) will receive a C$500.00 Entrant Award which goes towards their entry fee. Performance awards are also included in the program. These would apply towards Subaru entrants in any of the 4 competition categories: Open, Modern, Classic and Grand Touring. A Subaru that achieves first place in any of the categories will receive a cash award of C$2,000.00, second place C$1,500.00 and third place C$1,000.00.
Brian Hyland, Director, After Sales – Parts Operations, states that “Subaru Canada has been a long time supporter of Targa Newfoundland and is very excited to be able to make this offer available once again to those Subaru participants in the 15th Anniversary 2016 Targa. Subaru’s finished 1-2 in Open last year and are hoping for the same type of results in 2016. We wish all participants good luck and safe driving in the coming event.”
Owned and operated by Newfoundland International Motorsports Limited, Targa Newfoundland is one of three internationally recognized Targa motorsports events in the world. The 2016 competition will start in St. John’s on September 12th and concludes back in the capital on September 17th. The annual rally will cover more than 1,600 kilometers of the challenging, twisty roads of the central and eastern portion of Newfoundland, including over 440 kilometers of closed-road, flat-out Targa stages.
