  1. This event feels just like the real Targa. Great thing about the original Targa, you could almost ‘run what you brung’ and there would be a class for it and possibly a win!! Only exception if you were felt to be too competitive vs. a favored home team member you might face ‘disqualification’ at the last moment for some trumped up infraction! Congratulations Art as this event comes very close in spirit to the real thing!!
