New Zealand Classic Car - - Report -

his year, Targa has made a num­ber of changes to the for­mat of the an­nual Se­ria Cam­pi­one rules and reg­u­la­tions, to en­cour­age more par­tic­i­pants via a broader com­pe­ti­tion struc­ture that will cater for a wider range of cars.

We now have a Clas­sic 2WD Com­pe­ti­tion that is for pre-1986 ve­hi­cles, a Pro­duc­tion 2WD Com­pe­ti­tion for newer ve­hi­cles with few mod­i­fi­ca­tions, a Pro­duc­tion 4WD Com­pe­ti­tion for the large group of ex– Group N rally cars that are sit­ting around in sheds not be­ing used, and the fi­nal group is the All­com­ers Com­pe­ti­tion for all those highly mod­i­fied two- and four-wheel-drive ve­hi­cles that don’t qual­ify for any of the other com­pe­ti­tions.

Along with these changes, we have moved the dates and lo­ca­tions of each event, with Targa Rotorua mov­ing into March. The awe­some roads from this dis­trict will now have a greater chance of be­ing en­joyed in fine, dry, and sunny con­di­tions rather than the foggy days we ex­pe­ri­enced when we ran in May or June over the last 18 years.

Re­lo­cat­ing the May event and cre­at­ing a stand-alone re­gional two-day Targa Hawke’s Bay means that we can en­joy what the dis­trict has to of­fer, and we en­cour­age you to come along and get in­volved.

In October, Targa New Zealand will re­turn to the tra­di­tional Auck­land-toWelling­ton for­mat, which we are sure will be ap­pre­ci­ated by our South Is­land par­tic­i­pants.

We hope to see you around the events, and re­mind you to keep an eye on the web­site and Face­book pages for more de­tails.
