VCC Time Trial Entrants Checklist 

2.  What car can I participate in?

Any VCC eligible road legal car (30+ years old) with a VCC Vehicle Identity Card (VIC).  Refer #9 below “How to join the VCC and get a VIC?”

3.  What licence do I need?

All crew members (driver & co-driver/navigator) must be current financial members the Vintage Car Club of NZ (VCC) and hold current full NZ civil driver licences or overseas equivalent. (Non-driving navigators who don’t hold a current full NZ driver licence may only enter at the discretion of the Organising Committee). The VCC time trial is not a designated “speed event”, so AASA, MSNZ or VCC competition licences are not required.

4.  Do I need a Service Crew?

Service crew are not necessary for this event, but are permitted to support VCC entrants.  All such crew must be registered with both Targa and the VCC Steward prior to the event.  Refer VCC Time Trial Supplementary Regulations 3.11, available via the Targa website.

5.  What about accommodation during the event?

All Targa competitors, including those entering either the 5 Day or 2 Day VCC Time Trial are responsible for booking and paying for their own accommodation during the event. Please refer to the Itinerary and Accommodation Suggestions for the 5 Day and 2 Day VCC Time Trials attached:

6.  What is the difference between a Special Stage and a Touring Stage?

The VCC time trial competitors are timed on the same closed road “Special Stages” as all other Targa competitors. There are touring sections on public open road “Touring Stages” between each of the closed road “Special Stages”, so all vehicles must be road legal for use on New Zealand public roads.

7.  What is the Road Book?

Targa NZ uses a comprehensive Road Book with “tulip diagrams” to provide directions for all Touring and Special stages. No prior reconnaissance of the route is allowed.
