Thu, 26 Apr 2018 - Hayden Paddon confirmed for ENEOS International Rally of Whangarei

World Rally Championship driver and three-time winner of the ENEOS International Rally of Whangarei, Hayden Paddon (Wanaka) will again challenge for outright victory at this year’s 4 – 6 May event.

The opening round (of six) for the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC), Paddon will join the four international entrants vying for the winner’s trophy – that he lifted in 2007, 2009 and 2010.

Driving the locally built Hyundai i20 Paddon will start first car on the road, with Mal Peden alongside as co-driver.

“Whangarei has always been a highlight rally for me. It’s where I got my first ever rally win in 2007, as well as its association with the WRC, at using iconic New Zealand roads made famous through rallying,” said the 31-year-old.

“The camber of the roads, where you’re jumping from corner-to-corner over the crown of the road is quite a sensation.”

While Paddon is keen to get his name on the native wooden trophy it’s the status of the event internationally that stepped him to the top level of competition: “It’s nice to have any FIA event win on the CV but as well its where I won the Pirelli Star Driver scholarship back in 2010, which got me into the WRC. Plus competing at FIA sanctioned event level is more of a natural environment for me these days, as well as the two-pass reconnaissance, which gives other competitors an opportunity to develop notes and themselves at a higher level.”

Leading the international APRC field will be Australian based Kiwi Michael Young and co-driver Malcolm Read. Young says he’s keen to test himself and the lighter Cusco backed Toyota Yaris on roads he knows well, having finished third overall in 2016. The car is powered by a Lexus 2000cc direct injection turbo engine supplied as part of a joint project with TRD Japan (Toyota Techno Craft Co., Ltd.).

“It will be hugely beneficial on the Day One stages when its more twisty and narrow. Being lighter I'll be able to brake later and throw the car around easier,” said 25-year-old Young. “I definitely want to improve from 2016, speed was good then, but I think we should be able to get more out of the Toyota.”

Other entrants include Yuya Sumiyama and Takahiro Yasui (Japan) in a Skoda Fabia R5, Fabio Frisiero and Simone Scattolin (Italy) in a Peugeot 208 and Fuyuhiko Takahashi and Mitsuo Nakamura (Japan) in a Subaru STI.

Following the four international entries will be a strong field of mainly Kiwi competitors. Included in that field, mostly contesting the second round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, will be defending Australian Rally Champion Nathan Quinn and Kiwi co-driver David Calder in a Ford Fiesta R5.

A total of 20 cars round out the main field with an additional 33 in the subsidiary clubman’s field.

Taking in roads to the north and south of host city Whangarei the event starts on Friday night with two Super Special Stages at the William Fraser Memorial Park. On Saturday teams cover 150km of competition broken into eight stages. Sunday concludes with a further eight stages and 124km of competition before returning to Whangarei and the ceremonial finish at the Quayside Town Basin.

Spectating at the Friday night start and Pohe Island Super Special Stage is $15 per adult (or $20 at the gate). While access to the rural stage spectator points is $10 per day.

Best viewing spectator points are marked on the event map, available from the website http://www.rallywhangarei.co.nz/whangarei-map-a3-2018-v4/ For the Saturday there are nine designated viewing areas covering easily accessible road junctions, with a further seven locations covering Sunday’s stages. In addition is the free-to-view ceremonial finish at Whangarei’s Quayside Town Basin from 3pm on the Sunday.

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 - Record breaking performance for Thomson at Otago

Christchurch’s Dylan Thomson has made the perfect start to the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, with a class win and stage record at Rally Otago.

Thomson headed to the event looking to defend his Motorsport New Zealand two-wheel drive, Front-wheel drive and Junior championships from 2017. Also for the Otago event, Thomson wanted to beat the Kiwi two-wheel drive record through the infamous Kuri Bush stage, which was held by mentor Ben Hunt and set in the same car Thomson now campaigns.

He and co-driver Amy Hudson were immediately on the pace, setting a time almost 25 seconds faster than their nearest class rival on the opening stage and with a lead of more than four minutes by the time the pair got to stage seven, Kuri Bush, made the decision to chase the record, with conditions proving to be ideal. Their time of 8 minutes 13 seconds was some 12 seconds faster than the record set by Hunt in 2012.

A tough reconnaissance combined with some of the fastest roads in the national championship hampered Thomson on day two, although the 23-year old had opened up such a lead in the overall Motorsport NZ two-wheel drive championship that he was still able to comfortably take victory in that class as well.

“Basically from a results point of view we couldn’t ask for a better start to the season, we’re leading everything we want to be leading,” said Thomson. “Getting the record through Kuri Bush was magic, that was something that I really wanted to do. I said to Amy at the start of the stage ‘Hold on, this one will either go really well or really bad’, thankfully it went well.”

Thomson and his team now turn their attention to round two of the NZRC, the International Rally of Whangarei, on May 4-6.

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 - Final stage heartbreak for Gilmour

Dunedin driver Emma Gilmour experienced the tough hand that rallying can deftly dish out – with a final stage puncture deflating her hopes of a podium finish in the Drivesouth Otago Rally today.

It followed a strong first leg where she and Australian co-driver Anthony McLoughlin finished yesterday’s first nine stages in third position in the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship (NZRC).

Emma came out firing in her Vantage Windows and Doors Suzuki Swift AP4 today, with top five finishes in the first seven stages of the day, which saw teams travel north of Dunedin.

She and Anthony looked to have third place in the bag going into the last 37km Nenthorn test, with nearly a 50sec buffer over fourth-placed Rangiora siblings Matt and Nicole Summerfield.

Disaster struck about halfway through the stage when the front right tyre of Emma’s Suzuki went flat.

Anthony says that if they had only 10km to go in the stage they would have continued without changing it but they still had more than that distance to travel.

The difficult terrain where they had to park up to change the tyre meant they haemorrhaged time and finished the rally in 8th in the New Zealand Rally Championship category.

“We couldn’t get the car up on the jack and there wasn’t a good area to do it but we just kept persevering. I’m bitterly disappointed not to have been able to bring home a podium result in my local rally but we will regroup and be back fighting hard at Rally Whangarei in three week’s time,” Emma says.

"The positives to take away from this event is that the effort the team has put in over the off-season has paid dividends and we’ve had a great step up in consistent speed."

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 - Hunt starts the season strongly as runner-up at Otago

Ben Hunt and co-driver Tony Rawstorn had a storming start to their Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship campaign, finishing second to WRC driver Hayden Paddon, in the Drivesouth Rally of Otago today.

The pair completed the 17-stage, 281-competitive kilometre event in an unscathed Subaru WRX STi, with 11 runner-up stage finishes and they were never outside the top five teams for the rest of the six tests.

It is Hunt’s third season now in the STi and the development process has clearly reached a sweet spot.

“We have worked hard over the off-season and made quite a few improvements, which have paid off this weekend. Hayden is seriously quick and to be second to him is an achievement in itself as he’s a world-class driver,” Hunt says.

A 50sec time penalty for starting a stage late, early on day one, meant Hunt and Rawstorn had that deficit to overcome throughout the leg’s nine stages to the south of Dunedin. Blazing through the world-renown stages, like Kuri Bush and Waipori Gorge, Hunt regained any lost ground to finish second for the first day, with a 40.7sec lead over third-placed Emma Gilmour.

Heading north of the southern city today, he and Rawstorn had a definite plan of how to attack leg two’s eight stages.

“We always knew during recce that today would be tight as the stages are so fast. Yesterday was definitely the day to make up time on everyone. Today was about not doing anything silly and holding on to second place for the championship,” Hunt says.

They did just that - finishing well clear of third-placed Matt and Nicole Summerfield, in their new Mitsubishi Mirage, with a 2mins:34:9secs buffer.

The two second placings over the two days gave Hunt a healthy start to his six-round NZRC points bank and he has 36 points, 8 points behind Paddon and 8 points ahead of Summerfield.

“I want to thank my Hunt Motorsports team and also Speedhub Motorsport for all their hard work before and during this event and also to come in the short turn-around between Otago and the next round in Whangarei in three weeks time,” Hunt says.

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 - Paddon and Kennard take third Otago Rally win for Hyundai

The Hyundai i20 AP4+ rally car piloted by Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon and his co-driver John Kennard took its third consecutive win at Rally Otago, running 14-15 April, with Paddon winning each and every one of the 17 special stages.

Winning the two-day, 281.29 km rally by a margin of 8 min 27.7 sec from second-placed Ben Hunt, Paddon set also new stage records for all 17 stages.

Paddon’s dominance of a domestic New Zealand Rally Championship event is not unexpected, but the Kiwi WRC driver doesn’t take it all for granted, valuing the competition offered by his long-time rallying colleagues.

“The win is great for the car and great for Hyundai. I’m back in the rally groove, making pace notes, listening to pace notes, preparation, and all that side of things,” says Paddon whose Hyundai is run by his family’s team Paddon Rallysport under the Hyundai New Zealand Rally Team banner.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s WRC or NZRC, the way you prepare is very similar and important to be doing on a regular basis. The whole purpose of the NZRC campaign is to keep my eye in and to further develop the New Zealand Hyundai AP4+ car. Regardless of what any other competitors are doing, our priority this weekend was to focus on our own stages and I know when I’ve done a good or a bad stage – I kept my focus on that.

“The New Zealand Rally Championship generally is in a really good place. The others did a really good job – Ben, Emma [Gilmour], Dylan [Turner], Matt [Summerfield] – they were all very close and doing a good job, and the competition between them is very fierce. They’ll be faster again in Whangarei in just three weeks, so they keep enough pressure on us so that we have to keep our wits about us.”

Paddon Rallysport invested many manhours in further development work the i20 AP4+ car prior to Otago. “The car’s working well, it’s enjoyable to drive and we didn’t really have any problems this weekend so we have a good base to work from now; just some small refinements we’ll now do before Whangarei, but in general it’s working really well.”

The 17-stage Otago Rally is well known for its fast, flowing, gravel special stages – the stages on which Paddon honed his talent behind the wheel. The event’s mid-April timing bought rain and temperatures around zero degrees Celsius just prior to its running, conditions that top seed Paddon described as quite cold, but reasonable for rallying. “There wasn’t much gravel on the stages, but because it had been wet before rally and then dried out with the wind, they were fairly compacted and didn’t give you the best grip, a bit skittery.

“The stages on this rally are of a similar character, all very fast and you need a lot of commitment. In that respect they’re very good and it’s great fun,” he says, having set his fastest average speed on a stage (SS6) of 135.89 km/h.

Paddon enjoyed having former long-time co-driver John Kennard back in the car for this event. “We were straight back into the groove and it’s great to work with John, but unfortunately he won’t be with us for Whangarei [due to the timing of Kennard’s hip operation being brought forward].”

The first weekend of the 2018 NZRC also saw Paddon participating in Hyundai dealer events. “Hyundai had people out on the stages and it looked like everyone enjoyed themselves.”

Next up is the 5-6 May running of the International Rally of Whangarei, after which Paddon will depart immediately for Europe and his next WRC event, Rally Portugal. In the meantime, he’ll be making the most of every training opportunity and getting his hands dirty, helping his crew with those refinements for the AP4+ Hyundai.

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 - Holden rally driver Marston takes fourth at Otago

Josh Marston and co-driver Andrew Graves, from Christchurch and Gore respectively, put together a consistent performance to take a well-deserved fourth place at Rally Otago, the opening round of the 2018 New Zealand Rally Championship, over the weekend.

Penny Homes Holden Rally Team team-mate Greg Murphy, from Havelock North, also ran fairly consistently toward the front of the 65-strong NZRC field until an issue with the fuel feed to the engine of his Holden Barina AP4+ rally car forced him to retire early on Sunday afternoon.

“We had a good battle with Graham Featherston, who was in fifth place, and to just pip him at the end shows our pace is getting much better,” says Marston who held sixth or seventh place overall throughout much of the two-day, 17 special stage event before benefiting with a one-place improvement on his final placing due to Emma Gilmour dropping out of third place on the final stage.

“I’m really happy with how the car ran after the significant development the RDL Performance crew has put into it leading into this event. I didn’t quite get the most out it on Saturday, but changed a few things overnight and it was much better today. The car’s a lot different to drive with the new EXT suspension so that takes a little time to get used to. Improvements are going to come from more seat time for me and a little finetuning with the car now as we’re well in the window in terms of performance.

“There was fierce competition among those of us behind rally leader Hayden [Paddon]. Overall, I’m really happy with the car and feel we’ve made some good steps.”

Marston rates the Otago Rally special stages. “I really enjoy these stages, especially the ones north of Dunedin. They flow quite well and they’re fast. Our soft MRF tyre was a great option and we ran that all weekend.

“It’s also great to see Greg show some good pace through much of the weekend and I’m sure our guys will sort the fuel issue when he returns for Rally Canterbury in early June.”

While understandably disappointed not to finish the rally, Murphy is positive about much of the weekend’s performance, particularly his two fourth-fastest stage times on Sunday morning.

“It was a good morning today [Sunday] and I was somewhat surprised to see some of the times,” says Murphy. “That made me pretty pleased about the way I was driving the car. It confirms that the car feels good and it is good, rather than it feels good but it’s slow – as that can happen very easily. It was really positive to have both those things aligned, and to know the path you’re going on is right.”

Murphy’s Otago weekend started off with a bit of hiccup on Friday when his regular co-driver Mark Leonard, from Timaru, had to step out of the car before the rally commenced. “After Mark and I did recce, he wasn’t confident of his throat lasting the distance,” Murph relates, “Mark made the hard decision to retire hurt. Fortunately Lisa Hudson was available when the car she was meant to be co-driving in for Brian Stokes wasn’t ready on time. Lisa did recce with Brian to practice their notes which meant she could step in as co-driver for me. Saturday was a little disjointed, but by Sunday Lisa and I were working seamlessly, so to not get through all the stages to the finish was particularly disappointing.”

Murphy says the fuel issue bought him crashing back down to earth. “We lost power the stage prior and we realised it was struggling for fuel. It’s a systemic process to go through the systems to find the issue. With round two in Whangarei only three weeks, there’s less pressure on the team with me not being able to do Whangarei [due to Supercars’ commitments], so the focus is getting ready for Canterbury.”

Murphy also loved the Otago rally stages in his first run at this event in the Barina. “Road conditions were amazing with the soft MRF tyre working really well. It was very durable and doing everything we needed it to do.

“I was rapt to see Josh having a great day with speed and consistency. I think he’s found the way he needs to drive the car and I hope more of the same will follow.”

Now fourth in the NZRC drivers’ championship standings, Marston, Graves and the team head to the International Rally of Whangarei on 5-6 May, while Murphy and Leonard will re-join the team at the one-day Canterbury Rally in June.

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 - Paddon takes dominant Rally Otago victory
Hayden Paddon stormed to a convincing win at Rally Otago in the first round of the Brian Green Property New Zealand Rally Championship on Sunday.
The Hyundai WRC star, alongside co-driver John Kennard, eased to a 8:27.7s win to start his five-round domestic campaign off in sparkling fashion.

The pair won all 17 stages in the Hyundai New Zealand i20 AP4+ car.

“It was a nice clean weekend,” Paddon said. “We really enjoyed it and had a little bit of a push yesterday and a little push this morning and then just cruised this afternoon to bring home a good result, which is important for the team with the amount of work that goes into it all.”

Subaru’s Ben Hunt and Tony Rawstrom won a close-fought battle to be the best of the rest as the 2015 champion overcame a time penalty early on Saturday that dropped him down the order. But Hunt responded with a superb drive to take second place.

“I am really happy with the Subaru we have turned it into an awesome car now,” Hunt said.

“It has definitely come a long way since we built it.”

Local driver Emma Gilmour and co-driver Anthony McLaughlin looked set to complete a terrific weekend going into the final stage in third place overall in her Suzuki only to see a great result desert her when she got a puncture in a difficult place.
Matt and Nicole Summerfield inherited third place in the Mitsubishi Mirage – their first outing in the new generation car.

It was an up and down weekend for the pair as they got used to the new car but Summerfield was pleased to get to the end and bank some valuable championship points.

“When it is good I am happy – it is just a case of making that more of the time than not,” Summerfield said. “There were a few scares in there but all in all we are here, the car is good and straight, we know it is fast so it is just a case of miles.”

They had a time penalty applied to their Saturday time however, which saw them drop from third to fourth for the day. That was the one positive for a distraught Gilmour as she inherited the podium spot for day one.

Josh Marston and Andrew Graves came home fourth in a stunning result for the Holden Barina. Graham Featherstone and Dave Devonport finished fifth in the Mitsubish.

Raana Horan and co-driver Michael Connor were awarded the Dunlop Drive of the Rally for their outstanding sixth place overall in just their second NZRC event.

Dylan Turner and Malcolm Read were in-line for a top five finish until their Audi clipped a fence post on the inside of a corner late on Sunday while former Supercars driver Greg Murphy showed improved pace during the event, picking up two top-four stage times on Sunday before he was troubled by a fuel-line issue that dropped him down the order.

Dylan Thomson and Amy Hudson took a comfortable victory in the NZRC 2WD class.

“We are stoked to come away with the win,” Thomson said.
The youngster picked up the Hella Moment of the Rally for an incredible drive on the famous Kuri Bush stage on Saturday, where he recorded the eighth fastest time overall in the Ford Fiesta.

“We’d had a bit of a quiet day up until then,” Thomson explained. “We did everything to make sure we could go as fast as possible in that stage – we conserved tyres in the stage before – and from the start line it was absolutely flat from there. Every corner was 100 percent commitment and nothing less so we were stoked with that.”

David Taylor and Jared Hudson finished second in the class in the Honda Civic while Amy Keighley and Andrew Smith were third in the Suzuki Swift.

Wayne Pittams and Chris Davison took out category three honours in their Ford Escort while they were second to Thomson and Hudson in the MotorSport NZ 2WD championship.

“We are very happy with the drive and the way the car went,” Pittams said. “We just stuck at it and are absolutely ecstatic with the result.”

Regan Ross and Samantha Gray claimed top prize in the Historic Rally Championship while also winning the Otago International Classic Rally.

They led home John Silcock and Richard Atkinson’s Mazda RX7 in second with Andy Martin and Matt Hayward third in the Mazda RX3.

The championship continues next month at the International Rally of Whangarei.

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 - Ross heads pack as WRC star Ostberg hits trouble

Kaikoura’s Regan Ross (above) holds a slender 16.9 second lead after the opening leg of the 2018 International Otago Classic Rally, based at Dunedin in New Zealand’s South Island.

Driving a Ford Escort RS1800, Ross and co-driver Samantha Gray lead the Volkswagen Golf GTi of Christchurch’s Deane Buist, but it wasn’t such a good day for international star Mads Ostberg (pictured below).

Despite winning four of the day’s nine special stages, the Norwegian, together with Belgian co-driver Stephane Prevot, suffered a heartbreaking tailshaft failure just 2.5 kilometres in to the day’s first stage.

His Rossendale Rally Team then repaired his Ford Escort to rejoin the rally on stage four, but by then is chances of victory were well and truly dashed. “It’s been quite enjoyable,” Ostberg said after the day’s stages.

“It’s a shame we couldn’t go all the way through this morning, but I’ve enjoyed the stages we’ve done. “We still have loads of stages to go and we’ll keep enjoying it and trying to improve our speed all the time.” At the head of the field Ross had a successful first day, but knows his 16.9 second lead isn’t secure, with a further eight special stages to the north and west of Dunedin still to come on Sunday. In second place, Buist (pictured below) has been somewhat of a surprise packet, with his recently built VW Golf setting times that have even surprised its driver. He lies a clear minute ahead of third placed John Silcock in a Mazda RX7, who in turn is just 13 seconds ahead of Jeff Judd’s Escort. Australian driver Stewart Reid is fifth in yet another Escort, with Wellington’s Karl Robinson sixth at the wheel of a Nissan Bluebird Turbo. There was a long list of drivers who suffered mechanical problems during the day, headed by Welshman Meirion Evans who put his brand new Ford Escort RS1800 off the road on the very first stage, damaging the steering. Local hope, and three-time winner, Derek Ayson, missed stages in his Escort after niggling engine problems, while Australian Darryn Snooks broke a throttle cable in his beautifully prepared Datsun Stanza. In the corresponding Dunedin Isuzu Otago Rally - round one of the New Zealand Rally Championship - WRC star Hayden Paddon is completely dominating the field. The Hyundai i20 AP4+ driver holds an impressive 4m44s lead over Subaru’s Ben Hunt, with Dunedin’s Emma Gilmour sitting in fourth place in a Suzuki Swift. The second day of the International Otago Classic Rally will see drivers tackle another eight stages, concluding with the mammoth 37km Nenthorn test, which could well help to decide the 2018 winner.
