Wed, 19 Jun 2019 - Paddon going all out at South Canterbury

Hyundai rally driver Hayden Paddon will be going all out at this Saturday’s one-day South Canterbury Rally with Samantha Gray, another Timaru local, back in the co-driver’s seat of the Hyundai i20 AP4.

Paddon is originally from Geraldine so this is his ‘home’ rally and one he enjoys a great deal. He plans to up the pace he showed last year where he and John Kennard won the event by a margin of nearly five minutes.

The event run by the South Canterbury Car Club is the fourth round ...    more...

Thu, 6 Jun 2019 - Sheehan goes close in one-handed battle

Queenstown’s Mike Sheehan has gone close to an unlikely victory at the third round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, the Lone Star Rally Canterbury, held over the weekend.

“Sheehan suffered torn ligaments in his right thumb a week before the event after an accident during warm-up at his son’s rugby game saw him spend half a day in hospital suspecting the worst. Whilst determined to make the event, Sheehan knew he wouldn’t be able to perform at full speed.”

Subaru brand ambassador Ben Hunt has now scored a hat-trick of round wins in the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship (NZRC) after producing a masterful victory at the Lone Star Rally Canterbury yesterday.

Fri, 31 May 2019 - Confidence with caution for Gillies and Pilcher

Toyota Levin crew Andy Gillies and Nathan Pilcher are cautiously optimistic ahead of the Canterbury Rally as they look to challenge for the points lead in their class in this year's Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship.

It's the duo's first full season together after restoring the ex-Chris Paddon Toyota AE85 Levin with the help of the team's title sponsor Commercial Hire NZ. Gillies has competed on the combination of country and ...    more...

Fri, 31 May 2019 - Sheehan looks to defend lead at Canterbury

Queenstown’s Mike Sheehan will be looking to bank more points to defend his lead at the third round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship this weekend, the Lone Star Rally Canterbury.

Sheehan has recorded a first and a second placed finish in the FIA two-wheel drive class at the two rounds so far, held in Otago and Whangarei, which has left him with a 30-point lead. With the two two-day rallies done and dusted and four one day rallies left with less bonus points available, Sheehan knows a series of second ...    more...
