My Ride: 99' 323i
Targa Newfoundland

Hey guys, I just competed in the Targa Newfoundland rally in my 99' 323i.

For those who don't know. It's a 5 day long rally all across the province of Newfoundland. About 1600km in total with about 550km in closed stage rally.

It was an absolutely amazing event and my E46 performed perfectly the whole week long giving the high horsepower guys a run for their money.

Here's some pictures of the car.







And a quick video. Because who doesn't love the sound of an inline six screaming through a closed rally stage Ignore the slight wheel lockup around 50 seconds into the video lol. We managed to get the second fastest time out of 35+ cars on this stage.




I'm on Instagram @gordonpilling. Always posting pictures of the work being done to the car and racing. No pictures of food or cats....

Thats was awesome. You need a 2nd go pro on the cage looking at the MPH. Load them as a 2nd split screen. What was your top and average speed throughout the course?

Brilliant , I'm very jealous and I don't do envy generally , no co driver with pace notes ? couldn't hear any against the six singing which sounds sweet and pokey for a 323 . 50 seconds in did you look at the tire marks too long looks like so much fun , keep on keepin on and thanks for posting .

I am very interested in entering this rally with my brother. We were thinking of going in with either a e36 or an e46. Any tips you have would be greatly appreciated, we would be completely new to this scene, so every bit of info is good.

I think you mean participate. I'll bring the sacrificial lamb (car). You and I can figure out some driver, co-driver chemistry as we're crashing through white picket fences all through Newfoundland, what say you?

G, What wheel setup are you running. It looks so good, the rim and tire ratio.

Good on ya Gordon! Looks like you had an amazing time. I hear the people are great and there are some pretty remote locations to be driven through. How were (driver) attendance numbers this year? Off topic, are you going to spectate or drive at Tall Pines in November? I am planning on going (to spectate) as one of my buddy's a hardcore fan!
