Targa NZ-Vintage Car Club South Island Time Trial 2018

Targa NZ is known as “The Ultimate NZ Road Race” & for the second time only is returning to mainland lower South Island for 2018!!

With your support an entirely new event to be run in conjunction with Targa NZ South Island Rally may become known as “The Ultimate NZ Time Trial!”

Open to all Vintage Car Club members & those of affiliated clubs with VCC eligible vehicles.

Why-: To create a unique motoring spectacle of older vehicles being driven & displayed to encourage younger people to join VCC & existing members to use their classic & vintage cars as intended.

When-: Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th October 2018 (5 days of driving closed tarmac roads!).

Where-: Otago/Southland/Central Otago (Start/finish to be confirmed, but some significant stages include Otago Harbour hill roads, the Catlins, Teretonga, Highland Park, the Crown Range, Queenstown-Glenorchy return etc).

How-: Time trial competitors will have a unique opportunity to drive all closed Targa stages with the safety of knowing that all participants have staggered start times, drive in the same direction, on the same road, with nothing coming towards them!!

This is not a balls-out speed event, but rather an exercise in precise driving & time-keeping to maintain a set average speed over iconic lower South Island roads.

Entry fee will be significantly discounted from standard Targa competitor fee of $7,280 + gst, but will still cover all essentials including timing, tracking, medical & recovery as for Targa competitors & Targa tour. (Current discussions with Targa NZ management suggest $2-2,500 + gst).

We need a minimum 20 registrations of interest to make this work.

Please email Rod Corbett rcorbett@xtra.co.nz to register your interest or call Rod on 03 423 1551 or 027 433 8772 for further information.
