The legendary endurance race takes place in Newfoundland, Canada.
It happens between September 14th and 21st.
This year’s Targa Newfoundland will host a competition to see who or what reigns supreme – Electric Power or Internal Combustion. For the first time in the event’s 21-year history, it’s electrons vs. hydrocarbons.
Traveling through eastern and central Newfoundland will put competitors to the ultimate test – traversing 1,900 km for six days straight with 500 km of closed road sections and 1,400 km of transit routes. They must brave high-speed terrain, complex stages, and multiple lengths of transit all while complying with day-to-day rules. Their vehicle’s endurance, stamina, and strategy will be put to the ultimate test.
The premise is simple: Automakers worldwide have been pumping out EVs and continue to make many claims about their unmatched performance. Now, Targa Newfoundland provides a unique opportunity to put those claims to the test in a head-to-head comparison. Obviously, charging limitations have been taken into consideration. As the primary route winds through rural Newfoundland, where permanent charging stations can be scarce, competitors may employ portable stations with prior approval from organizers.
If you can, join or watch this head-to-head challenge between September 14th to 22nd this year. It offers many unique experiences.
