A Two Day Two Division Introduction to Competition

Targa 2023

September 14th – 21st

Targa Newfoundland is pleased to announce the courses for the 2023 event.  Race the Rock will bring back some of the courses that are located in Eastern and Central Newfoundland while adding new ones.  As the island of Newfoundland is surrounded by water we have elected to name the areas in which we will run after the  major bays in Eastern and Central Newfoundland.  This will  return the thrills and spectacle of this world class motorsport event to the areas in which it all started in 2002. 

The 2023 event will start on Saturday September 16 in the Southern Avalon Peninsula in communities that border on St. Mary’s Bay then progress on Sunday the 17th to the South West Avalon moving through communities located on Placentia Bay.   On Monday the 18th it will travel to the Notre Dame Bay area communities and then move on Tuesday the 19th to the Eastport Peninsula on Bonavista Bay.  On Wednesday the 20th it will be in the Random Island area on Trinity Bay then traveling on Thursday the 21st to the final day in the Conception Bay area, finishing up in penultimate and final stages in Brigus. The awards gala will be held in St. John’s on Friday evening September 22nd.   The map below will allow you to see the specific competitive stages and spectator viewing areas on the 2023 course.  Please note that there may be some adjustments as we move closer to the event”.
