Top team to enter Targa Newfoundland

Toronto, Ontario – The Vehicle Dynamics Group team has announced its entry in the fourth annual Targa Newfoundland tarmac rally. The dual entry consists of a 1967 Acadian Canso Sport Coupe and a 2005 Subaru WRX STi, piloted by drivers Jud Buchanan and Keith Townsend, and co-drivers Peter Wright and Jen Horsey.

The team is vying for the first outright Canadian win in the race’s four-year history, covering 2,100 km of terrain in six days, including more than 500 km of closed-road, flat-out Targa stages.

Buchanan and Wright have entered each year with the Acadian since the first Targa Newfoundland in 2002, and finished a close second in the classic division and third overall in 2004.
