The Fiat 500 Abarth will be competing in the exciting 2012 Targa Newfoundland taking place from September 8-15. Driving the Fiat 500 Abarth will be two-time Formula DRIFT champion and stunt-driver Samuel Hubinette, along with Targa Newfoundland veteran Jen Horsey as the co-driver.
The 2012 Targa Newfoundland, named after the famed Targa Florio in Italy, starts in St. John’s on September 8 and concludes back in the capital on September 15. The 11th annual rally covers more than 2,000 kilometres of challenging, twisty roads in the central and eastern portion of Newfoundland, including up to 450 kilometres of closed-road, flat-out Targa stages.
