In case you are among the three or four people in the world who have not seen the video of the Ferrari Enzo going for a swim in Marystown Newfoundland last week, here ya go.
Among the many amazing things about this incident is the incredible calmness of driver/owner Zahir Rana after the fact. He had just very possibly toasted his million-plus-dollar car (subsequent investigation suggests that fixing the damage to the car - salt-water and electronics really do not play nice together - will run into six figures, none of them to the right of the decimal point...) yet all he can talk about is how it's just a car, no-one was hurt, how wonderful the entire event was, and how much he's looking forward to coming back next year.
Prior to the start of Targa, Zahir told me that the FIA-approved roll cage he had custom-built in Germany for his Lamborghini Gallardo arrived the day before the transport truck which was to bring his cars from Calgary to Newfoundland was leaving, and he didn't have time to install it in the Lambo.
Even then, let alone in retrospect, he agreed that this was probably a Good Thing, that getting a feel for the rally before committing to doing it for real was the right way to do it.
Although this was Zahir's first rally, his little swim showed that he has learned the first rule of rallying - although the car did go off on the left side of the road, he did get it rotated 180 degrees so the co-driver's side actually hit the water first.
Which is perhaps the most amazing aspect of that little video - the enthusiasm of co-driver Roland Linder. He can't wait to come back too.
As I've been telling you for ten years, until you experience Targa for yourself, you just can't fully understand it.
Start planning your budget for next year...
