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!

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!
