back in Bay
The prestigious 2011 Dunlop Targa
Rally is returning to Hawke's Bay
after a four-year absence.
Drivers and their cars will
assemble in Auckland on Monday,
October 24 for the start of the event
which will be raced in stages over
750 kilometres of road, finishing in
The race attracts some of the most
exotic machinery to take to a rally
stage in New Zealand, with vehicles
ranging from vintage sports cars to
expensive European machinery and
current, state-of-the-art 4WD rally
cars. Drivers hurl their vehicles over
hundreds of kilometres of closed,
sealed roads around rural North
Island during the six days of racing.
Cars to lineup in this year's event
include assorted BMWs, a number of
ultra-quick Nissan GTRs and the
exotic Stillen GT-R driven by USA-
based Kiwi flier, Steve Millen.
Havelock North will become the
centre of post-rally festivities on the
night of Saturday, October 29 when
competitors, their teams and
supporters will wind down following
a gruelling week of competition.
Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule
said local businesses would benefit
as the Targa drivers, crews and
supporters came back to the region
for the first time in four years.
Hawke's Bay roads were used from
2004 to 2007.
The competitors love our roads
and it's another chance to highlight
Hastings to potential visitors.
Businesses all over the region will
see the value of bringing this event
here, with cafe
´ s, restaurants and
motels likely to benefit from the
influx of visitors.
The drivers will have a service
break at the Hawke's Bay Racing
Centre around lunchtime on
Saturday where enthusiasts will be
able to get to look at the vehicles.
Targa event director Peter Martin
said he was delighted the rally was
finishing in Havelock North.
Council has been extremely sup-
portive of having the event return to
the region and, in past years, local
motorsport fans have turned out in
their droves .''
A breakfast before the official
prizegiving is to be held in the
Hawke's Bay Opera House in Hast-
ings on the Sunday morning.
