Targa Miata
April 11, 2012 - The 2011 Targa TV show will be aired this weekend on Speed.
1 pm EST on Saturday, April 14, to be more precise. It's already aired in Canada on TSN, but this will be the first chance for those south of the border to get a peek.
The show is an overview of the entire event, so it attempts to cover every team. It's a good way to get a feel for what was going on over the course of the week. Apparently the version shown in Canada had absolutely no Miata content, despite the fact that both FM teams were leading their respective divisions at the end of Day 3. The version to be shown on Speed, however, apparently does mention the Targa Miata briefly. If you want to see extensive Miata coverage, you'll have to be patient a bit longer until our own DVD comes out.
You can also buy a copy of the DVD from the Targa Newfoundland website. It's the Canadian version, the one with no Miatas.

July 19, 2012 - I took the car to a local car show on Saturday to see if I could drum up a bit of interest in the upcoming premiere for Racing The Rock.
Hint - it's on August 3rd at the Avalon Theater in Grand Junction. Anyhow, it wasn't much of a success. I had the only imported car there. Well, technically the new Camaros being shown off by the dealer are imported from Canada, but don't try to tell anyone that.
Still, it was a nice day to spend hanging out in the grass, and there was a guy there with a very cool home-built off-road buggy that I spent some time examining.
