Targa Hawkes Bay only 1 Month Away!

Targa Hawkes Bay only 1 Month Away!

With one month until Targa Hawkes Bay on the 20-21st May there is still time to join us for a spectatular weekend away, so if you haven't entered yet, then get your team together and put an entry in. ENTER HERE

We have selected awesome roads, some that have been regulars in our Targa NZ event over recent years and others that we have not seen for quite some time, but all are worthy and very enjoyable.

The Hawkes Bay has a lot to offer outside of the Motorsport activities so we have again based the event around the Havelock North Village and the local Business community is really putting on a show with lots of enjoyable things to do for those family members who might want to join you for the weekend.

With approximately 380kms of closed road stage distance and only 575kms of touring this will be an action paked event that is worth every cent so make the effort to ba part of this inagugral event, one we are sure will be on our calendar for many years to come.

Please note that there have been some changes to the competiton structure which moves us closer to international standards. This means there is now Four competitions, Metalman Classic 2WD, Global Security Production 2WD, Andrew Simms Production 2WD and Allcomers (2WD & 4WD), so there is a competition for everyone. For those of you participating in the Targa Tour we have added a few more awards to recognise the increasing number of members. This truely means that there now is a fair competiton for all types of vehicle so we emplore you to encourage your mates to come and have a go.

So enough of the sell job, Are you ready?

The local Hawkes Bay Car Club will be joining us on Saturday for a one day event as a thank you for their assistance and we will be considering this as an option for other events if it works.

We would also like to welcome Tomoana Warehousing on board as a Targa Hawkes Bay regional sponsor. Most of you will know the Taylor Family, with Trevor and Stewart being involvd in Rallying for many years.

We look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks, again if you need any assistance please contact the office.
