2021 Targa

2021 Targa

A word from the Clerk of the Course after our 2021 event…

I have many thanks to give for making The Autoshop Solway Targa event come together and run so smooth and safely.

The team who put together the entire paperwork, documentation, route book and the online info. This is just fantastic, we are so lucky we have access to this modern technology and the
people to work this technology to produce this well put together package. So professionally (special thanks to the Laminating fairy, also Ian Wilson for stepping in after printer failure )

The timing / results team.
Another professional job using modern technology to produce an excellent system especially the up-to-date results was a big hit with everyone

The marshals.
For getting on with the job in what was at sometimes difficult weather conditions. It was nice to see some old faces, regular faces and some new faces out there helping the event
run so well

The tidy up team
Again we have the right people with the resources to get this done so quickly and smoothly and never a problem

The competitors
For entering and coming along and completing the circle to run this event. From what I saw and heard out there you were enjoying yourselves, even if some of the tests felt a bit technical in
places. All in all the feedback has been good.

The Arden house
For their usual welcome to us. As Ever there was plenty for everyone

Dundrennan ranges personnel.
For letting us use this great facility.

The Stewart family
For their continued support .Great to see the family down and they were taken with this format
of motorsport.

A huge thank you to you all.
Cheers
Albert Connelly

day job and preparing a car ready for the event as well. Well done that Man you know who you are)
