Racing through the town of Appleton. Notice John is reading notes carefully.
Flat out towards Musgrave Harbour. Car felt very light at high speeds.

We finally make it into Leading Tickles... after last year's drama.

Apexing garage at Greenspond.

Peaceful scenery of Harbour Mille. It didn't seem so peaceful when we rolled the car there last year.

The BMW 2002tii (Sponge Bob) on the pier won the Targa overall this year.

Photo by George.

John taking pensive steps up the hill from Harbour Mille where the car rolled last year.

We've just successfully completed the stage this year.

The spot where the back end of the car broke loose last year... The car ended up rolled and flipped just past the first white house on the left.
The drink. Where we could have ended up. Where we would have ended up last year, if the car had rolled right instead of left...
The boulder which was dislodged from the side of the rock face by the car as it flipped in 2006. Now part of the front yard landscaping for the nearby house.

Leaving Harbour Mille, heading to Appleton.

Uncanningly similar to the shot from last year...

Photo by Gordon Sleigh.

Cross the river is Marystown. Gravel on driver's left.

Panorama photo from Marystown. End of day 4. Note the Lexus, to the right of the Mini Cooper: it is a Hybrid. Fast car...

Photo from Gander photography club.

Last stage of the Targa, through the subdivision of Torbay North.
The grin on their faces say it all: we finished!
At the finish line in St. John's.

"Get 'er done" when we started. Changed to "Got 'er done."
