The Town of Clarenville approved a motion to host the third day of the ninth annual Targa Newfoundland car race on Tuesday.
"We appreciate the efforts of the community to bring Targa back to Clarenville, and to the mayor and council for the thoughtful deliberation that went into this decisions," said Targa organizer Robert Giannou. "We know that Targa has a positive economic impact on the communities along the route, and we are pleased that Clarenville will take advantage of our long relationship."
The event will have an overnight stop in the town on Sept. 15. During the evening a car show and other Targa activities are scheduled at the Clarenville Events Center.
The 4.99 km Clarenville stage of the event is much-loved by veteran competitors because of its challenging route and enthusiastic fans, say Targa officials. In previous years, the results of the stage have influenced the outcome of the competition.
It is the eighth year that Targa Newfoundland has included Clarenville in its schedule. The event is returning to the town after a one-year absence.
Targa Newfoundland is one of three internationally recognized Targa motorsports events in the world. The event will start in St. John's on Sept. 11, and end in St. John's on Sept. 18.
The competition will cover more than 2,000 kms of the central and eastern portion of Newfoundland.
