It\'s almost time for Targa Newfoundland! *56k warn

Well, just over one month to go. I personally think this is THE coolest motorsports event on the continent, bar none. It's basically a tarmac rally taking place over a whole week, on paved roads, on a beautiful island filled with wonderful people.

I SOOOO want to do this. The entry fee is so steep though. $4500. Ouch.
Hopefully some day I can do it.

Oh, here's the link, check it out:

I saw the higlights from last years race on TV on OLN last weekend and man does that ever look like a blast! It would be awesome to try once you get over the entry fee and the fact that I'd have to drive to the other side of the continent.

Re: It\'s almost time for Targa Newfoundland! *56k warn

I'd love to call Craig and ask if I could just crew for him. Just gimme a piece of floor on the motorhome, I'll bring all my tools, could be great. But alas, I'm getting married and our "honeymoon" is going to be September 3rd-10th. So this wouldn't go over too well.

Maybe next year.

I was thinking, maybe I could try to raise enough sponsorship money to pay the entry fee? $4500CDN isn't that much for sponsorship, and it's nationally televised...

Re: It\'s almost time for Targa Newfoundland! *56k warn

Thanks guys. Yeah, we'll have little go-cart racers in a few years. Tina wants them right away, but we've decided to wait about two years. I want to take her skiing out west, and maybe to Europe before we "settle down" too much.

Mike: how long was the show? It'd be great if you could mail it to me so I could watch it and send it back. I never got to see the footage.
