Volunteers needed for Timing Teams and Set-Up Vehicle Teams

With just over four weeks until the 16th annual Targa Newfoundland, the event is short a number of key positions. We require volunteers for the entire week of Targa (Sept. 9th through 15th) to go on the road with us, and be active members of our Timing Teams and our Set-Up Vehicle Teams.

Timing is just that, dealing with electronics with display clocks, timing gear, and recording that data for the Scorer. You would be involved in the active running of stages, and have a close-up view of vehicles on the stages (within a safe distance). Training will be provided.

Set-Up Vehicle Teams are teams of two that are the first to arrive in a community. They will assist local marshals set-up the entire stage, deal with community leaders and make sure the stage is “green” by the time the main event arrives. Training will be provided.

Targa provides accommodations in Clarenville for the Monday and Tuesday on the road; provides meal allowance for the week on the road; provides gas allowance for the week on the road; potentially could assist with rental vehicles (depends on the situation); provides accommodation allowance if individuals find their own places to stay during the week.

We have a strong international field of competitors this year, and a solid course to provide them. We’ll be based out of three modern arenas in Torbay, Clarenville, and Harbour Grace. The event is known as the “Ironman of Motorsports”, not because it is easy, because it pushes man, woman, and vehicle to their limits.

If this interest you or you have any questions, please contact us at registrar@targanewfoundland.com, fill out the volunteer form via our main website, or get in contact with our Volunteer Coordinator, Leah Dalton, directly leahd@targanl.com.
