Targa New Zealand rally, 2010

This television news clip shows the winner and some of the less fortunate participants in the 2010 Targa New Zealand rally, a six-day event around the North Island. Cars competed against each other and also against the clock on closed sections of public sealed roads. The event was divided into several categories to allow a wide range of vehicles, from 1950s classic cars and four-wheel drives, to super-modern rally racers, to compete on equal terms.
