Targa Rally - Wanganui - Pit Stop - 26 October 2005

Words and pictures Mike Pollard

The cat was gettin' sick of toast ........ so I thought I'd better get some cat food in!
I set off down the road and immediately saw some amazing machines coming the other way! Oh of course .... the Targa cars must be in town, on their way from New Plymouth to Palmerston North ..... bugger i've missed 'em!

But when some of the cars have 4 x figure numbers, I figure that there must be a few of them!!

So I followed the trail back ................like following a line of ants............. they're probably based at Cooks Gardens I thought .......the big multisports venue in the centre of town. Right turn ... hmmm maybe the Wanganui Car Club are hosting them ......... plenty of room up by the airport methinks. Another right turn ...........where am I going? .......... Well it was obvious wasn't it? ... I should have guessed .................

Hello and welcome to St Annes primary school !!!!

The good thing about rallying is that there are so many classes, and no matter what you drive, you will always find a category within which you can compete. Indeed in some rallys there are more classes than competitors! Not so with the Targa, which actually manages to compete head to head with WRX Rally New Zealand in terms of profile and press column inches. This event draws a huge number of competitors in everything from 50's classics to the futuristic Skelta G-Force. I now know what I want for Christmas!!
