Held over seven days every September, Targa Newfoundland is the first event of its kind to be held in North America. It is an annual event and forms a 2200 km long, high quality automotive adventure on the paved roads of the eastern and central parts of the island of Newfoundland.
The event allows the owners of historic, classic and modern sporting motor vehicles to drive them the way they were designed to be driven in a rally competition. In the event each vehicle competes against itself on a handicap basis as well as against other vehicles. The competition is for Targa plates which every competitor can win.
