Mon, 24 Sep 2018 - Cox’s Ashley Forest record still stands despite issue

It wasn’t exactly the weekend Rotorua’s Sloan Cox hoped for at the Ashley Forest Rallysprint, having been unable to progress past the top 32 competitors, but his record of 54.96 seconds on the 1.7km course couldn’t be beaten by the new winner Alistair McRae.

The 22-23 September event in the Ashley Forest near Rangiora in north Canterbury is run by the Ratec Motorsport Club and attracted Kiwi WRC driver Hayden Paddon and Scottish rally star Alister McRae to take on Cox as the defending Ashley Forest champion.

“It’s ...    more...

Mon, 24 Sep 2018 - McRae becomes first international driver to win Ashley Forest Rallysprint
Australian-based Scotsman Alister McRae won the Ashley Forest Rallysprint, in North Canterbury today, in the 1998 ex-Possum Bourne Vantage Subaru WRC - becoming the first international driver to claim victory in the event’s 35-year history.
The elimination-style nature of the rallysprint, which featured a 55% uphill and 45% downhill 1.7km course, saw McRae go first in the top-two run off. He clocked a 55.35secs time and the large crowd waited with bated breath as his challenger Blenheim’s Neil West charged off up the hill in his mighty Mitsubishi Mirage, with Evo running gear. West, who had his son Jack on-board as ...    more...
Thu, 20 Sep 2018 - Otago Rally announces two-pass recce for 2019

Next year’s Otago Rally will offer competitors a two-pass reconnaissance for the first time, in a move to reduce the advantage of drivers who have contested the event on many occasions.

The decision is not one that has been made lightly by rally organisers, and is the first of many new features that will ensure that the Otago Rally remains one of the Southern Hemisphere’s most popular events.

“Our competitors are at the heart of what we do, and this initiative has only been taken after considerable consideration of what ...    more...

Thu, 20 Sep 2018 - Countdown has begun for second Targa NZ event in the South Island

The countdown has begun for the 2018 Targa New Zealand tarmac motor rally, the annual multi-day marathon event returning to the South Island in late October for only the second time in its 24 year history,

This year the iconic closed road stage event starts in Invercargill on Tuesday October 23 and takes in over 600kms of closed special stages linked by close to 1800km of touring stages through Southland and Otago before a ceremonial finish in Queenstown on Saturday October 27.

The last time the event was held in the South Island was in 2014, and the man behind ...    more...

Tue, 18 Sep 2018 - Ashley Forest more unfinished business for Paddon

It’s only 1.7 kilometres of gravel road in a forest near Rangiora in North Canterbury, but the iconic Ashley Forest Rallysprint represents unfinished business for Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon.

Fresh from securing a hard-fought third place at Rally Turkey on 16 September, Paddon is homeward bound ready to get behind the wheel of his New Zealand-built Hyundai i20 AP4+, especially upgraded to what Paddon calls AP4++ format for the Ashley Forest event.

“Ashley Forest is an event I grew up watching on TV, on repeat many times and seeing Rod Millen break the ...    more...

Mon, 17 Sep 2018 - Dixon a hero of New Zealand motorsport

Scott Dixon’s fifth IndyCar Series championship adds another layer to his hero status in New Zealand motorsport.

The race driver originally from Manurewa ran a steady, mistake-free race to finish second in the IndyCar season finale, the Grand Prix of Sonoma, to race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. The result was more than enough to give the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda driver his fifth series championship in an 18-year career.

Dixon moves to second on the all-time championship winners’ list behind seven-time USAC winner AJ Foyt. The 38-year-old’s fifth ...    more...
