TARGANEWFOUNDLAND I 5 AN IMPORTANT MILESTONE TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND IS CELEBRATING ITS 15TH ANNIvERSARY IN 2016 ROBERT GIANNOU I PRESIDENT I TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND W elcome to Targa Newfoundland. It is now our fifteenth year. the two day Motorsport School to an exact schedule is no small achievement. In fact it is quite a remarkable one. On a broader spectrum the event will bring some 6-7 million of economic activity and provide some 6.5 million of advertising value for the province which results in an annual contribution of 3 million to the province s gross domestic product while providing significant job equivalents and community benefits. In 2016 our marketing strategy has been successful in that we have attracted a broader range of competitors one of the largest fields ever and a host of new sponsors. The spectrum of these partnerships has once again been expanded through our co-marketing arrangements with international companies such as Shaw Direct Hume Media Lucas Oil Inside Track Motorsport News a monthly publication and the annual Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo held in Toronto. Speaking of Lucas Oil this year will see the creation of the first Lucas Oil Challenge the winner of which will receive a free entry into next year s Targa. We are also back on the airwaves with our review television show which will be filmed this year and for the next three years. It was heavily missed by our fans and we are glad to say we ll be back on a television near you very soon Targa Newfoundland has established a very significant footprint in the motorsport world of North America. It s an internationally sought after event that provides exposure to millions of possible competitors sponsors and fans. In a very measurable way this has increased Targa s visibility in Canada s most significant marketplace Ontario and Quebec. In its 15 years Targa Newfoundland has become more than a competition it has become a family. We have achieved a 55% competitor return rate calculated year-on-year which is actually greater if one considers those who return after an absence of two years or more. Once again Targa Newfoundland 2016 is an entirely new event and a new competition. On behalf of the Board of Governors our thanks go out to all of our sponsors the host communities and their volunteers. We also wish the best of luck to the competitors who are taking up the challenge. Enjoy the adventure TNL What an achievement Once this year is complete we will have run 640 stages in 84 different host communities. Furthermore the 2016 event will be one of the most challenging events for competitors as there will be a total of 51 stages covering almost 450 kilometres. This is the largest number of stages we have ever run and includes a fantastic new stage grouping around the communities of Terrenceville and Grand Le Pierre on the Burin Peninsula. This new stage grouping includes one of the longest stages yet run in the history of Targa. It is just under 30 kilometres in length. The 2016 course also has 14 new stages to challenge returning and rookie competitors alike. To add to the prestige of winning Targa we have created the title of Targa Master which will be awarded annually to each of the division winners. Then every five years thereafter the division winners will face off and complete for the title of Targa Grand Master. The focus and goal of the 2016 event will be the same as that of the past years to increase the level of competition while working with the communities and volunteers to ensure that we run a safe and timely event. To that end we have again followed our annual practice of adjusting and upgrading our safety plans for each community. The new and revised 2016 plan will be supervised and audited by a group of eight safety audit course cars staffed by trained experienced and certified crews. These factors when combined will ensure that we all will have a safe and fun event. The event s Board of Governors is a fantastic group. These people Ms. Janet Brake of Gander Mr. Bill Langdon and Mr. Bill Goodyear of St. John s NL Mr. John Hume of Toronto ON Mr. Mike Davenport of Orillia ON and Mr. Mark Williams of Maryland US have each in their own way provided significant assistance and guidance throughout the year. They and our 12 departmentheads have donated so much of their personal time to help organizing this fabulous event. It is also a credit to all of the communities who host the stages and their volunteers. To run a nine-day event which includes 6 I TARGANFLD.COM 15 YEARS RACING ROUND THE ROCk vISIT TO TASMANIA THE CATALYST FOR BIRTH OF TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND Organizers of the 15th anniversary edition of Targa Newfoundland expect the largest field in the event s history with over 50 entries. By J. Wally Nesbitt coverage and we were welcomed with open arms from the various communities. They realized the benefits for their local economies. As the Targa Newfoundland prepares for the 15th edition of the Rally Round The Rock Sheppard explained that although the rules and regulations have remained relatively static the event itself is ever changing. Because we race on public roads we need to use what is given to us. At one time we were a traveling circus we d stay in a different town every night. Recently we became more centred in Clarenville so that the teams and drivers can come back to a familiar bed every night. We re always trying to discover new routes for new stages with less transit between starting points. Ultimately we d like to move towards population centres with the hopes of racing in front of larger audiences and attracting a broader business base. In the earlier events competitors regularly raced in excess of 2 200 kilometres. For 2016 the planned race distance has been reduced to 1 662 kilometres over 51 stages plus transits. We got evil in planning this year s route said Giannou. Almost 20 percent of the racing distance will be new stages but the part that the competitors will like the best will be the reduced tran- R eturning from an adventure to Targa Tasmania where he navigated while Doug Mepham raced his Classic 1971 volvo 142 GT in April of 2001 noted motoring journalist Jim kenzie pondered the possibility of Canada hosting such as event. I thought if you had an island like Tasmania where you could sort of keep control of things if you had a place with a welcoming population like Tasmania and if you had a place that could use some tourism dollars like Tasmania...so just as a joke I said to Doug Targa Newfoundland He had a quizzical look in his eye and said I know someone who might be able to make that happen said the three-time Targa class winner. Approaching long-time friend Robert Giannou about the concept the notion took hold and development work began on the project. Once it was determined that Newfoundland could provide an ideal location for the event plans were finalized and with the blessing and financial assistance of the Newfoundland provincial government and then Premier Robert Grimes in 2002 the inaugural Targa Newfoundland began. There was a very positive reaction from our first Targa said General Manager Darren Sheppard. It was something entirely new for the media. They were all over this new race with their 8 I TARGANFLD.COM 15 YEARS RACING ROUND THE ROCk vISIT TO TASMANIA THE CATALYST FOR BIRTH OF TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND sit times. There will be shorter distances stage-to-stage. Giannou also noted that since the original Targa Newfoundland in 2002 86 different communities have hosted stages and by the end of the 2016 rally there will have been 640 stages completed. With an average stage length in excess of 400 kilometres rough math estimates that the total distance raced will be more than a quarter-million kilometres or approximately six times around the earth. Another fact that Giannou is justifiably proud of is the drop in rates of incidents from a high of 18 percent in 2006 to just two percent over the past three races. The reduction can be directly attributed to the highly-recommended Targa Driving School that focuses more on navigation than driving skills. Previously the general rule was that the driver was in charge but what we ve done is rethink that concept. We ve followed the lead of the airline industry where the co-pilot the one who s reading the gauges and directions is in control leaving the driver to simply drive. That s why our incident rate is down. For the 15th anniversary edition of the Targa Newfoundland there will be four distinct divisions for participants to choose from. The Targa division is for fully-prepared racing vehicles and is sub-divided into Classic Modern and Open classes. Grand Touring is more a navigational rally where timing speed and distance are integrated into a combined scoring system. Although not a competition the Fast Tour and Quick Tour divisions are for car owners who have the desire to drive their vehicles as they were meant to be driven without actually racing for points. The Fast Tour is a full five-day event while the Quick Tour class is an exploratory division allowing entrants to experience the Targa in a one- to three-day span. New for the 15th anniversary Targa organizers have created a Masters Challenge for the GT and Targa divisions and have invited all previous winners back for one more run at the rally. The driver who accumulates the least penalty time will be rewarded and recognized as the Targa Grand Master. Drawing competitors from across Canada and the US the 2016 Targa Newfoundland will not only showcase the finest driving and navigational talent but will also present some of the most eyecatching and awe-inspiring automotive machinery. Spectators will have the opportunity to witness such European models as BMWs Porsches and Audis competing against the best from Asia all the while being challenged by premier North American designs. In the Targa division Newfoundland s own Billy Anderson will be attempting to repeat his 2015 Modern class winning performance aboard his 2002 Mini Cooper while Orillia ON s Mike Davenport will again be at the wheel of his Subaru WRX in an attempt to reclaim his 2013 and 2014 Targa division crowns. For the classic car fans New Brunswick s Doug Brown has entered his 1959 Corvette and will be facing off against a pair of 1949 Cadillacs entered by American drivers Lloyd Dahmen and John Daniels Jr. In a matchup of the extremes in Fast Touring the female driving duo of Carol Patterson and Carolyn Webb will pit their 1953 MGTD against fellow Ontario native krishna Suganthan s exotic 2016 Lamborghini Huracan. There will be more eyes on us this year because of the 15th anniversary celebration and we want to make this Targa Newfoundland one to remember. We expect to have one of the largest fields we ve ever had and the largest in recent memory. Our competitor return rate is over 60 percent we must be doing something right to have people come back to Newfoundland year after year concluded Sheppard. TNL The 15th anniversary edition of Targa Newfoundland will feature reduced transit times between stages which covers 1 662 kilometres this year. 10 I TARGANFLD.COM TARGANEWFOUNDLAND I 11 EvENT
