The crew at MotoMan has rolled out the second episode of its Targa Newfoundland coverage. This time around, Brandon Fitch and I spend plenty of time talking with the guys about the challenges of Day One, how the Flyin' Miata supercharged NC MX-5 Miata handles some of the more technical stages and joy of hauling ass through a subdivision. Meanwhile, team MotoMan gets a few valuable lessons on competition in targa from veterans of the race like Rob Pacione and learns a little about Newfoundland hospitality at the same time. As the week continues, competitors are forced to overcome a variety of challenges, from an entire engine swap in a Lotus to a water-logged 911.

Part Two gives us all a better idea of what it's like to compete in Grand Touring, where the goal is to hit a specific time and speed, rather than simply beat a time like in Targa class. Both competitions are challenging in their own right, but we have to sympathize with MotoMan's frustration at being forced to limp a Dodge Challenger 392 along at 40 miles per hour with an open road ahead of you. Scroll down to check it out for yourself.

      can't watch this fool... $100 says he can't even ride Moto. Have not seen a single dirtbike in his videos. change your name! how about LameDoucheWhoCan'tDrive-Man. Flies all the way to Newfoundland, gets a powerful car with a cage, and cruises like a grandma at 20mph and gets laughed off the track. REAL GOOD PR, MOPAR! This guy's gonna destroy ALL Mopar's credibility...

        You do understand the rules for the class he is competing in right? The goal in the Grand Touring class is to hit a specific time for each section which is often much slower than what they're capable of. It's not laying down the fastest possible time.
