We visit Jellybean Autocrafters

The perfect car doesn’t exist, not because there aren’t great builders, but because cars are as much about art as they are performance. Art can be divisive, one person may hate a painting another may love it, and only the truly great artists have been able to get general consensus that their work is in fact great. Most of us don’t and can’t ‘do art’, so just as we commission a painter to paint a masterpiece for our living room, we must commission a Craftsman to build our custom cars.

The essential part of commissioning someone to build your masterpiece is finding a builder who can bring your vision to life and make it better than you imagined, and in the city of Langley BC you can find such craftsmen.

Targa Newfoundland simplifies rules for competitors

Targa Newfoundland has simplified the rules and regulations to make it easier for competitors to understand and follow, and easier for organizers to manage.  

There are three competitive and one non-competitive divisions in the event. Targa 1 and 2, Grand Touring, and Fast Tour. The competitive Targa 1 and 2 divisions are further grouped by two-wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles made before or after the year 2000.  

“We wanted to make it easier for competitors to figure out which division to enter,” says Targa Newfoundland President Joe Dowden. “You just need to choose from the competitive and non-competitive divisions and identify whether your car is two-wheel or all-wheel-drive, whether it has a roll cage, and when it was made. It’s as simple as that.”

St. John’s, NL, May 1, 2024 … Targa Newfoundland, the only tarmac-based car rally in North America since 2002, has simplified the rules and regulations to make them easier for competitors to understand and follow, and easier for organizers to manage.  

There are three competitive and one non-competitive divisions in this legendary event, which runs September 12-19: Targa 1 and 2, Grand Touring, and Fast Tour. The competitive Targa 1 and 2 divisions are further grouped by two-wheel and all-wheel-drive vehicles made before or after the year 2000.
