    Targa Newfoundland

    Itís September and there will be racing in the streets of Newfoundland this week for the 10th year. I have to do this someday, at least as a spectator.

    Targa Newfoundland is the first and only event of its kind to be held in North America. At 10 years young, every aspect of our high end automotive adventure just keeps getting better. As motorsport enthusiasts, we know that limits were made to be pushed and cars were designed to be driven.

    I saw something about it this weekend on TV. Apparently it is almost always raining there. Looked like very tight places in spots.
