Targa NFLD video: John Hume and John Hume Jr. race in the Targa Newfoundland

Here's a video I just got from John Hume, who raced in Targa Newfoundland and came in 3rd in GT class. Look carefully at the signs on his car, especially the one under the drivers names, at 1:28

I've been out to this on two different occasions. It's awesome, the videos do not do it justice. The smaller towns have very very narrow roads with fronts of houses right on the road (literally 1 ft). Other roads run the edge of a cliff with ocean on one side and a big ditch on the other... scenery is great. I drove a few of the stages in a rental after targa had finished, but obviously not at same speeds.

I'm really hoping to enter a car there one day... I can build the car but need sponsors. :-(
