Last year’s main and the pre­vi­ous South Is­land event were this team’s only Tar­gas, with Bruce — the driver — rack­ing up his years as a keen gravel-rally man, and watch­ing Targa from the side­lines for the bet­ter part of 15 years. Un­for­tu­nately, dur­ing one of the early stages of last year’s main event they were col­lected from be­hind af­ter find­ing them­selves in an off-road ex­cur­sion, and the car was badly dam­aged. How­ever, in­stead of go­ing home to lick their wounds, they quickly got back to it and claimed sec­ond over­all in Clas­sic 2WD.

Their BMW 325i is only mildly mod­i­fied, but with ex­cel­lent prepa­ra­tion by Nel­son’s All­trax NZ race and rally fab­ri­ca­tor, it has per­formed fault­lessly through­out the two events.


ew to Targa, Rob An­der­son and Chrissi Harkess en­tered their first Targa Tour af­ter re­ceiv­ing an in­vi­ta­tion to push the lim­its of their 2015 Lam­borgh­ini Huracán. The pair are avid mo­tor­bike rid­ers, with Rob dab­bling in For­mula 1 and For­mula 2 su­per­bike rac­ing back in the day. In prepa­ra­tion for their tin-top de­but they put in a fair amount of prac­tice at lo­cal tracks, and picked up a few tricks through Down­force driver train­ing. The car it­self is a stock ex­am­ple, and in typ­i­cal Lam­borgh­ini fash­ion is track in­spired, mak­ing it an ex­cel­lent choice for the tour straight out of the show­room. Of course it will come as no sur­prise that like many of our read­ers, Rob has al­ways wanted to own a Lam­borgh­ini, and the Huracán is the pair’s sec­ond af­ter pre­vi­ously own­ing a Gal­lardo. Chrissi told us that they have al­ways en­joyed the thrill of driv­ing fast, cov­er­ing most of the coun­try’s roads atop a two-wheel rocket, and last year they made the trip over to Spain to drive the new Aven­ta­dor Su­per­ve­loce at Barcelona’s Cir­cuit de Catalunya.
