New Zealand Classic Car - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Mar­cus van Klink is no stranger to Targa, hav­ing com­peted since 2005, when he raced a Targa-spec Mit­subishi Lancer Evo­lu­tion III. Rac­ing a Mazda Group B RX-7 rally car, Mar­cus has taken out three New Zealand Rally Cham­pi­onship ti­tles in the last five years, as well as win­ning the pres­ti­gious Otago Clas­sic Rally, so he is no stranger to flat-out driv­ing on un­for­giv­ing roads. He is also very fa­mil­iar with Targa rac­ing, hav­ing com­peted in 2005, 2006, and 2014. With his cur­rent co-driver Dave Neill be­side him, and tran­si­tion­ing to a Wrc-spec Citroën C2 S1600, Mar­cus clearly isn’t do­ing any­thing by halves, and is look­ing to be a very real con­tender — the North Is­land’s roads will suit the Citroën well. Mar­cus’s Targa ef­fort is spon­sored by Ed­ward Gib­bon Plumb­ing Plus, AMT Me­chan­i­cal Ser­vices, Bute­line, Cas­trol, Palm­side Au­to­mo­tive, Al Marsh Au­to­mo­tive, and Uni­ver­sal Plumb­ing.
