|Port au Choix, Newfoundland|
Last year was the 10th anniversary of the Targa Newfoundland. It’s an annual rally over seven days and 2,200 kilometres of closed roads and possibly the most exciting rally race in Canada, for spectators as well as competitors. It looks insanely fun.
There is a class for classic cars in the Targa, which is how I first became interested, though I haven’t yet seen it live. For those of us who missed it, however, a one-hour documentary of last year’s Targa produced by Toronto’s TV2GO Inc. can be streamed on demand from the Targa Newfoundlandwebsite.
Take a look! Viewing it is free. The scenery alone makes it worth watching, and the cars are fantastic. Besides the classic cars, there’s a Dodge Viper, and a number of exotic sports cars, including at least one Ferrari. Hmm. Maybe I need to schedule a trip to Newfoundland this fall.
