Targa Newfoundland to be subject of documentary
St. John’s, Newfoundland – Newfoundland International Motorsports, owner and organizer of Targa Newfoundland, and ATV Productions Ltd. of Vancouver have signed a 5-year agreement that will see ATV produce and distribute a one-hour television documentary on the annual international rally for historic, classic and modern sporting cars. The agreement begins with the 5th Anniversary Targa Newfoundland in September of 2006.
The 5th Anniversary Targa Newfoundland (Sept. 9 to 16) will start and end in St. John’s and will cover more than 2,100 kilometres of the challenging, twisty roads of the central and eastern portion of the island of Newfoundland over six days, including more than 500 kilometres of closed-road, flat-out Targa Stages. In addition to the two primary competitions for Targa and Grand Touring entries, a new category known as Targa Tour has been added for 2006. The latter gives motorsports enthusiasts and collectors of unique and rare vehicles the opportunity to enjoy all that Targa has to offer without the pressure of competition or the need for stringent vehicle preparation.
