Targa Newfoundland 2017


Monday September 11th, 2017 Targa NL Day 1

If anyone is reading this….You are probably best off to see pictures and short stories from our team mates posted on Facebook each day and during the day. Check out Christina Kroner, Ruth Thorogood, Briar de Lange all on Facebook!
But here goes from me.
All 20 odd team members arrived safely and on time – a first !
Tech inspections and prologue practice Sunday went off without a hitch.
And now Day one is finished. All 6 cars made it through the day successfully. We had rain by the bucket loads today. However all races were run on time and quite successfully. Hume team spirits are very high. Our GT cars are standing 1,2,3,…for now, changeable by the day of course. John Jr and Justin Crant are in top spot in Modern with Jon Riddell/Briar de Lange in 4th. We did have some electromechanical issues to deal with on both M3s and the 2006 MINI. All as of 9:00 PM tonight have been resolved. Poor Ralph keeps getting flat tires on his rental van. Two in two days! He is just plain cursed when it comes to vans…
That is it until tomorrow PM.
short but sweet.
