LOS ANGELES – June 30, 2010 – The Targa Trophy Triple Crown Series , North America’s premier automotive lifestyle rally event, kicked off in with an action-packed day that took drivers on a seven-hour course from Los Angles to San Diego last weekend. 600+ cars flanked the energy-charged starting line where 73 drivers lined up to compete for the coveted first place prizes and bragging rights. Radoslav Kalla in his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder took home the victory and now leads the Triple Crown points chase for the championship.

“Our first event of 2010 was an enormous success,” says Jason Overell, founder of Targa Trophy. “A record number of cars started the event at W Hollywood and traversed a challenging course that took them through all types of scenery that only Southern California can offer. Look out for another course that promises to be equally challenging in our Bay Area event in August.”

The first leg of the 2010 Triple Crown Series kicked off with a 600+-car expo outside the W Hollywood organized in conjunction with SoCalEuro.com. At 10 a.m., 73 pairs of drivers and navigators lined up to depart for their finish line at the W San Diego. The course was divided into two legs; the first leg testing navigational skill and the second challenging the driver’s prowess. Through a strategic point system, drivers advanced by reaching check points nearest to the Targa Trophy predetermined time as they followed the route through stunning coastal sceneries and through deserted back roads. Kalla’s team came in first by accumulating the most points throughout the event, making all the checkpoints and staying closest to the predetermined Targa Trophy times and mileage. His prizes include a custom black diamond Targa Trophy pendant worth $6,000, travel packages, automotive gift certificates and even a ticket to the Playboy Mansion.

“Targa Trophy did a great job in organizing the event and everything went very smooth,” said Kalla. “This was by far my best rally experience.”

Targa Trophy continues its 2010 Triple Crown Series August 27-28, 2010 in San Francisco’s Bay Area with the starting line at the W San Francisco and finishing at the W Silicon Valley. The finale event will be a desert challenge on October 15-16, 2010.
