2011 Dunlop Targa Rally

Clear your diaries for Saturday 29 October, the Targa Rally is in town!

Finishing the six-leg race in Havelock North, over 100 vintage, sports, European and state-of-the-art 4wd rally cars will weave their way through our rural roads and finish at the Treachers Lane carpark where they will be parked up till late and a celebration of the event will begin.

Entertainment and commentary will be on show from 4pm in the centre of Havelock North and everyone is welcome to join in the fun.

Making their way from Auckland from 24 October, the Targa Rally is a non-competitive tour for people who have a special interest car and want to experience driving on winding closed roads.
