All three vehicles participating in this year’s Targa Newfoundland for the Chrysler Group were production models. Ralph Gilles finished in second place in the Modern Category driving a Dodge Viper SRT10 production model; Rob Pacione won the Open Category aboard a Dodge Challenger SRT 392 with a Mopar Performance exhaust and Crate 392 HEMI® engine; while George Notaras, in his first ever participation at Targa, drove a production Challenger SRT 392 to a ninth place finish in the Grand Touring Category.
BernieEach year, hundreds of high-performance vehicles descend on the scenic Atlantic coast of Canada in a celebration of speed called Targa Newfoundland. This year, three factory-backed SRT vehicles joined a diverse field of international competitors eager to test their vehicles' technical limits. For the 10th edition of Targa Newfoundland, the three-car SRT effort led by Ralph Gilles, has raised close to $26,000 for the Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. The funds raised will help provide services and programs to individuals and families affected by Autism.
