Targa Newfoundland confirms future dates
St. John’s, Newfoundland – Organizers of the Targa Newfoundland road rally have announced that the second week of September will be fixed as the perennial dates for the international event. The sixth annual Targa Newfoundland will take place from September 8 to 15, 2007.
The September dates are ideal for the event, which boosts Newfoundland tourism during the “shoulder” of the tourism season, and capitalizes on good autumn weather and reduced road traffic. The event starts and ends in St. John’s and covers more than 2,000 km in six days, including more than 400 km of closed-road, flat-out Targa stages.
