Targa Newfoundland 2017


Saturday September 20th, 2014

Well, a week and a bit of racing around this beautiful island is over.
The Hume bunch had a very successful adventure this year to be sure.
Through thick and thin, all three car crews, service crews and film crews came through in flying colours.

John Jr and Justin (car #9) finished 2nd in Modern Division.
Nicole and Cody (car #1334) finished 2nd in GT Equipped. Incredible considering Nicole is totally new to this event.
John Sr and Craig (car#1333) finished first in GT Equipped with a mere 13 penalty seconds. That is an extremely low score to manage over such a difficult range of race legs!

The partying continued on through the night Friday. I expect to see a few red eyed travelers at the airport later today….the price of success!

The event was well managed this year. With no canceled races due to delays etc., although there were plenty of course changes to cope with before the event began. In fact John and Craig managed to get lost transiting more than once through the week. However, still managed to get to race start on time.

In conclusion a successful year. We raised $23,000 for MS research in the bargain, with a million thanks to all our very generous donors.

And a final special heart felt thanks to Michael, Calvin, Rein and Garrett who worked tirelessly 24/7 all week, with virtually no sleep, to keep our cars working, shoot the updates and upload to the web each day.

Until next year, signing off,
