Ferrari Enzo goes for a Swim

The tenth anniversary of Targa Newfoundland has been happening on the island of Newfoundland on the east coast of Canada all this week.

You've never heard of Targa Newfoundland?

Targa Newfoundland is the only motorsport event of its kind to be held in North America. A 2200 kilometre rally course through stunning scenery covering a large part of the island. 'Targa' (or competitive) sections are held on roads closed to the general public and comprise 20% of the total course. The rest of the race is on public roads.

Drivers bring their cars and ther co-drivers and their support teams from far and wide.
There are classes for professional rally cars, and classes for your home grown fix-em-uppers.

And some people bring their Very Expensive Cars to take part.
This Ferrari Enzo is worth $1.5 million.... Uhoh! I don't think it's unscheduled dip in the ocean will do it much good. But I'll bet they'll be back racing in no time.
