Targa legends night announced for 50th event
Greg Murphy, Racing Ray Williams and Tony Quinn will join the many names attending the inaugural Giltrap Group Legends Night dinner, which will become a regular event on the New Zealand motor racing calendar.
The dinner takes place at the official Targa start base at Wairakei Resort Taupo on Wednesday October 12, and promises to be a true celebration of all things Targa, a night of respecting our past and recognising our present legends. The inaugural Targa Legends will be revealed on the night as the initial inductees and every year a select few will be included
“Celebrating the exceptional careers of our legends from here and overseas, the Giltrap Group Legends Night Dinner brings New Zealand motorsport heroes, luminaries and enthusiasts to evening of fun, story-telling and reminiscing,” says Targa event director Peter Martin.
“We are also delighted and thankful to welcome the Giltrap Group as our gold sponsor in hosting this great event and helping to bring it to life. The Giltrap Group - and the Giltrap family itself - which has such a rich history in Kiwi motorsport at all levels - they could well be considered legends themselves.”
Michael Giltrap, Joint Managing Director of the Giltrap Group says “We are proud to be involved in this inaugural event, continuing our support of NZ motorsport and all things racing. It is very important to us as accompany, and as ordinary kiwis, that we maintain and nurture this support from grass roots all the way to the top, as I’m sure some of the legends of the night will testify to. Not to mention the fact that, of course-we love cars.”
A relaxed ‘Lounge Style’ Q+A sessions will be hosted by Stephen McIvor, delving deep into the lives and careers of some of the guests, exploring the triumphs, lows, close calls and adrenalin-fuelled moments.
Kids in Cars — our official fundraising partner — is the worthy beneficiary of our charity auction, so feel free to let the wallet off the chain for the event. The auction promises a serious selection of goodies like high-end, sought-after racing memorabilia, helicopter flights, Targa entries and getaways at some of the country’s most stunning accommodation.
