I am not in favour of having this sort of events in residental areas in our towns, No doubt, it does bring new revenue to our province, But what is the cost of when a tradgey happens & someone is killed. Is this targa group going to be responsible for all of the financial repro-cussions that is associated with & when the death of some individual occurs. I mean like a father or mother, who provides financial security for there family, Is taraga going to step up to plate & provide income support to the family for the rest of their life, when a tragic event takes place. All of the Major Car races such as Nascar & Sprint cup races take place on a track, with a lot more safety & controls in place, & there are still tragic events that happen, So why should we subject our people to this sort event. Sure! its entertainment but at what cost. I have no problem supportting this on some sort of track but not in our communities & neighbourhoods.

It's only a matter of time before a major crash - as in dead bodies - kicks the rear end of Targa, right where it belongs !! OFF THIS ISLAND!! Sorry Targa - I can't put a price on a life!! Too many close calls, in races past, has made me come to this conclusion!! Find a place where no people live and - GO WILD!! Rich boys and their toys deserve that , and no more!!

I live in Ontario and am involved in motorsports. The number of people I meet who have participated in Targa Newfoundland, or who intend to participate is amazing. Targa has really put Newfoundland on the motorsports map and I think that it is difficult to estimate the economic benefit. The Targa specials on the Speed Network and TSN are priceless tourism promotion. Keep up the good work.

I'm not much of a race car fan. But it is great that this is bringing people to the province. Keep up the good work Targa.
