Newfoundland International Motorsports Limited is pleased to announce that plans to hold a Targa Bambina competition during the Canada Day long weekend in 2017. This mini version of the internationally acclaimed competition will be held from June 30th – July 3rd and will consist of three days of competition, offering 16 competitive stages on the Burin Peninsula.
This smaller version of the Targa is designed as a compact, three day adventure, instead of the grueling week-long event that is held each September. Four divisions will be available within the Bambina:
- The competitive Targa Bambina division, which includes Modern/Classic classes with 2WD/AWD breakdowns within those classes.
- The non-competitive Fast Touring division, which allows those to enjoy the closed road stages, but not under the pressure of competition.
- The Show Cruise division, which is created for classic cars who’s owners would like to participate in the Bambina, but not at a high speed – released as a single group of vehicles, in a parade format.
- Car Show only – vehicles can enter for the two car shows that are planned in the Burin area.
The Bambina gives the opportunity for people with an interest in motorsports to try their hand at stage rallying, without having to commit to the time and effort that the full Targa would involve. Entry for this event is a fraction of the cost of the Targa, and the overall winner will gain free admission to Targa’s 16th annual event in September.
