Thursday, May 31, 2012 by Tina Tbolt

Targa Trophy San Diego Experience Event - Post Rally Recap

Monday, April 9, 2012 by Tina

In my opinion, the Targa Trophy Experience events have never been less than exciting and exhilarating. This most recent event, the San Diego Experience, was structured differently than those in the past, but it still held true to the to the Targa Trophy values  — go, go, go!!! 

Drivers License = Freedom?

Friday, March 16, 2012 by Tina Tbolt

A driver’s license is a source of teenage freedom and something that represents a rite of passage from childhood to adulthood. It gives us the ability to make our own rules (so we think), captain our own adventures, and the wheels to go anywhere we want to go.

Women in the Car World

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 by Tina Tbolt

People always tell me that I’m “different” because it’s not often that a woman enjoys being behind the wheel of a fast car. Although I do agree that it is not as common as it is with men, I usually pause for a second and consider my response. 

Targa Trophy NYE Post Rally Recap

Friday, January 13, 2012 by Access for Tina

In general, Targa Trophy puts on about three events each year. I show up expecting awesome and I leave knowing that what I experienced was nothing short of amazing! My compliments to the organizers at Targa Trophy -- they have a way of making every single one of these events more mind-blowing than the last. I don't know how they do it, but they're damn good at it.

Canyon Carving

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 by Tina Tbolt

Everyone has their own way of relieving stress and getting away from the world. Some people work out, some take vacations, others play video games — I have fallen in love with an activity that involves my three loves: driving, speed and adventure. My escape is Canyon Carving.

“Passion Pink” Bentley for a Great Cause

Friday, October 28, 2011 by Tina Tbolt

There’s nothing that I love more than hearing about the car community giving back. I recently caught wind of a great and inspirational event combining a beautiful, special edition, exotic car and the passion to put an end to breast cancer.  I was immediately taken aback by, not only the car, but also by the event itself.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011 by Tina Tbolt

This past weekend my dad and I flew to the Laguna Seca racetrack for the AMG Driving Academy — a world-renowned driver-training program that came to the United States from Germany in 2009. This was the first time I have had the opportunity to drive cars with this much horsepower, at these speeds and with this much aggression around a racetrack.

Tina Tbolt - AMG Academy is coming up!!

Friday, September 23, 2011 by Tina Tbolt

Racing is a passion of mine! Along with that, it seems that I always enjoy pushing my limits. I’m not saying that I’m an amazing driver; I’m just saying that I like to keep learning and pushing my boundaries. This is a passion that I share with my dad, and he understands how speed is something that can grow into an addiction.

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 by Tina Tbolt

At the recent Targa Trophy Experience in Los Angeles on August 27th, 2011, the rally route included three checkpoints along the course, and as proof of competition, each contestant had to take a picture of themselves at each checkpoint and upload it to the Targa Trophy Facebook page.  What we didn’t know then was that the pictures submitted for checkpoint #1 would turn into more than just proof of competition.
