I saw that. Ive been running TSD rallies for years and thats the first TV coverage Ive seen of one.

If you can't afford the targa now, get invoved with the SCCA and run some of thier TSDs. $30-$50 + food + gas and you're racing for an entire day, at least 100 miles often much more.

is a good writeup on how a TSD rally works.

I'm sure there are organizations in Canada hosting them but I do not know of any, sorry.

TSD rallies don't seem the same as the type of Rally found at Rally Newfoundland. That rally is an all out speed race with the streets closed off and everything.

No. The streets are closed however the mechanics and objectives are the same. There was a low level amateur group that worked exactly like that kind of TSD. The higher level groups were given higher targets speeds and had to cover the same course in a faster time.
