Toronto MINI Club is ready to take on TARGA Newfoundland September 13-18, 2015. After Torontonians John Hume and Nicole Troster took first and second in the Grand Touring division in 2014 with their one two punch of Gen 2 JCW GP and Gen 1 JCW GP respectively, a few more members are looking to add to Toronto MINI Club’s domination of the event.
A quick background: Targa Newfoundland is a very rare event for North America. For the past 14 years Newfoundland has been the scene of a public road rally that spans 1500 kilometers. It is a chance to see the amazing, unique landscape in a highly competitive and exciting setting.

Kyle Connor, a new member to Toronto MINI Club, but a massive name in the MINI community, has decided to take on this memorable challenge by entering his purpose built Countryman “Kowalski”. Featuring a custom built engine and exhaust, plus suspenion upgrades and a driver who knows how to handle a MINI in this setting, Kyle should be a force to be reckoned with.
He is seeking the support of the MINI Community to help him achieve his goal and to build on the idea that MINIacs do great things together. Check out his fundraising page here to see how you can help and what goodies he offers in return
Also joining Kyle will be Toronto MINI club founder and MINIac Supreme Christina Kroner! Piloting the second place car from last year’s Targa Race, Christina will look to build on the result Nicole set in 2014. Nicole will still be piloting a MINI however so the pack looks to be very well represented from our humble club.
P.S. Huge shoutout to Toronto MINI Club member Elwira (aka ThunderSeven) for her logo created for Kyle seen at the top of this post
