Introducing Twin Creek Media's Racing Team!

Yep, you’ve read that right. On May 12, Twin Creek Media participated in the Targa Tour put on by Targa Canada West.  It’s a motorsport event that tickled our inner speed demons. Well—it wasn’t actually a race, but one can dream. The Targa Tour was held as a “gimmick-style”rally, where participants navigated some of the Okanagan’s twistiest paved roads to gain points in a location-based scavenger hunt.

Among the sports car entrants were a Maserati Granturismo MC, an Aston Martin Vantage, Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, a rare Jaguar E-Type, and a good handful of various models of Porsches.

We didn’t win anything (it was close!) but we sure got a great adrenaline kick out of it!

Check out our (cars’) glamour shots:

Racing buddies!
Our cars were #18 and #19 in the lineup.
We race RC cars too! (and boats... and bikes... and pretty much anything...)
Even the RC cars had their own special TCM branding! P.S. If you're into to RC cars check out the little club in Kelowna at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Radio-Operated-Cars-of-Kelowna/118307768245034
Here's our team: James and Thomas with the Audi S4 Avant (left); Christina and Scott with the BMW 325i (right).

We definitely hope to be back in the Targa Tour next year!  Maybe one day they’ll bring a full closed course Targa to BC like the other events held around the world.  The closest one to us Canucks is held in Newfoundland.  Hauling a car out there is a little inconvenient never mind the $6000 entry fee!
