Wed, 9 Sep 2020 - Sky Sport to broadcast inaugural Jacks Ridge rally sprint live

Sky Sport will provide exclusive live coverage of the Battle of Jacks Ridge rally sprint on Sunday November 15 as the sport evolves with a new-generation urban event.

 Featuring the best rally drivers in the country and some of the biggest names in New Zealand motorsport, the Battle of Jacks Ridge promises to be the biggest domestic event in New Zealand rally history and it will take place just minutes from downtown Auckland. 

The event will see competitors blast around 2km of purpose-built gravel road, featuring high speed jumps, technical corners and close proximity to spectators on former New Zealand champion Andrew Hawkeswood’s Whitford property. 

With the Hauraki Gulf, Rangitoto Island and the Auckland City skyline as a backdrop, Jacks Ridge is a spectacular location to watch rally cars compete on a World Rally Championship-calibre power stage, located just 20 minutes from the Auckland CBD. 

Sky Sport will broadcast the final runs live during four hours of live coverage that will be unlike anything ever seen on New Zealand soil before.  

The coverage will be fronted by an all star line up including Sky Speed hosts Stephen McIvor and four-time Bathurst winner Greg Murphy and will feature 16 separate cameras capturing every piece of the action. 

Rally New Zealand chairman Peter Johnston is hailing the partnership with Sky Sport as the future of the sport in New Zealand. 

“For Sky to broadcast the event this way is a massive coup for the sport,” he said. “From the moment we first spoke to them, Sky has been very supportive and has recognised what we can achieve together.

“The coverage will be world class and will give viewers the closest possible experience to be being there in person.”

Sky Sport presenter and former Supercars star Murphy spent some time in the latter part of his career rally driving and is super keen to be involved in the event.

“I have a massive love of rallying,” Murphy said. “I was so excited about the WRC coming to New Zealand and then so disappointed when COVID-19 prevented that from happening.

“There was so much work that went into securing the WRC by a lot of people.

“I was involved in some conversations around what we could do to give the rally community something that was as close to world championship quality as possible and to make use of this amazing stage.

“So when it was proposed we do the Battle of Jacks Ridge I was only too keen to lend a hand.

“It is going to be an amazing event and I am thrilled that I can play a role via my broadcast duties with Sky Sport and potentially drive in the event as well.”

New Zealand’s most successful rally driver Hayden Paddon will be the star attraction and is an ambassador for the event.

“Like everyone I was disappointed that Rally New Zealand was not possible this year but I cannot wait to compete on that world class stage and in front of Kiwi rally fans,” Paddon said.

“Jacks Ridge is a phenomenal rally stage and will make for one heck of an event.

“I’ll be there and I can’t wait to test myself against the best cars and drivers in New Zealand.

”The Battle of Jacks Ridge is already attracting huge interest from New Zealand’s best drivers while leading motorsport figures are also lining up for a crack at the rally sprint.

Wed, 9 Sep 2020 - New Zealand farewells iconic Subaru Legacy

The Subaru brand in New Zealand are preparing to say a fond farewell to the legendary Legacy, which will no longer be part of the Subaru line-up from 2021.

Steeped in history, the Subaru Legacy has been one of Subaru New Zealand’s top performers since it arrived in 1989. The model had big shoes to fill, stepping in to replace the old but much-loved Leone.

New Zealanders were quick to embrace the Legacy however, and its popularity soared, especially as a used import in the 1990s.

Subaru of New Zealand’s Managing Director Wallis Dumper recalled Legacy’s glory days, when it was the country’s best-seller.

“Whilst the Toyota Corolla was top of the new car sales overall, Legacy was New Zealand’s number one selling used vehicle thanks to the massive imports ratio.”

“For Subaru in New Zealand this was important as we knew people loved the brand and the car. Legacy developed a bulletproof reputation, so it was a natural progression to guide customers from a used Legacy to a new Subaru, as time went on,” Mr Dumper says.

Legacy’s fame ignited with Scottish driving legend Colin McRae at the wheel when he scored the Subaru team’s first-ever World Rally Championship round win here at the Rally of New Zealand in 1993.

“Whilst most Kiwis probably associate Subaru’s historic WRX model as being synonymous with winning rally championships, the reality is that Colin’s success in the Legacy then inspired Subaru to enter the WRX and become world champions three-times over in 1995, 2001, and 2003,” Mr Dumper says.

“Legacy also starred on a national level in the New Zealand Rally Championship, with legends like the late Possum Bourne and multiple championship winner Joe McAndrew scoring their victories in this Subaru model,” Mr Dumper adds.

Legacy wasn’t just a success on gravel, and it has racked up a long list of awards, including the ultimate recognition as Car of the Year in 2000 and 2004.

  • 2000 – Subaru Legacy wins NZ Autocar Car of the Year and National Business Review Car of the Year.
  • 2000 – Subaru Legacy wins NZ Autocar Best Medium Car.
  • 2004 – Subaru Legacy 2.5i wagon wins AA Autocar New Zealand Car of The Year.
  • 2004 – Subaru Legacy wins AA Autocar New Zealand Best Medium Car.
  • 2005 – Subaru Legacy wins AA Autocar Best Executive Car.
  • 2009 – Subaru Legacy wins AA Autocar Medium Large Category.
  • 2015 – Subaru Legacy wins NZ Company Vehicle’s Large Business Car of the Year.

These awards distinguished Legacy from the medium market pack, which over the two decades following its launch, represented a significant part of New Zealand's automotive landscape.

A more recent contraction of the medium sector has seen Subaru’s burgeoning SUV range surpass Legacy’s previous successes – not least with the ultra-popular Outback, which has always shared the same platform.

In a clear indication of how market preferences have changed over the past year, 64 Legacys sold in New Zealand in 2019, compared to Outback’s sales of 1322 in 2019.

Over the generations, around 4000 New Zealand-new Legacys have been sold to Kiwi drivers.

Mr Dumper says: “No one can take away the credibility Legacy built for itself. Stable and sure-footed on the worst back country roads that New Zealand could throw at it and safe and reassuring on the wettest, slipperiest city intersection - Legacy has created its own legacy.”

“Subaru’s ‘Confidence in Motion’ catch phrase arose primarily from everyday Legacy drivers’ feedback to Japan’s engineers when they visited New Zealand in the early 2000s to learn why the brand was so readily accepted in Aotearoa.”

Although production of the Legacy 3.6RS and 2.5 models will cease from next year, customers still seeking a Subaru sedan can consider the current generation Impreza, which closely mimics the physical size of third generation Legacy sedan and offers the same Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive attributes. Even more appealing for those drivers who remember the old Legacy, the modern versions of the Impreza and the WRX both have more cabin space courtesy of technological advancements.

 

“We also have the WRX, as a performance sedan option that is probably the closest relative to the various turbocharged Legacy variants, such as the RS and GTB, which captured the hearts of so many enthusiastic drivers in their heyday,” Mr Dumper concludes.

Wed, 9 Sep 2020 - Shapley returns with elite co-driver

Shapley was taking a year off from the rally scene to be a Dad as a new arrival of a beautiful baby boy named Matthew , but due to covid 19 it seemed the whole rally scene would grind to halt.  

When Shapley caught wind of a rally based out of Whakatane (Home town) he knew it was time to dust the race suit off and prep the car, he also ended up on the rally committee to help organize the event. This event should be a awesome he said. With Sam Byrne moving from co driver to driver of his own lancer rally car it would see Jono Shapley looking for a new person to sit shotgun and call notes for the remaining 2020 and the full New Zealand Championship in 2021  

After consideration of Jonos self goals and a coffee date Shapley had found the perfect companion to keep him on track. And is proud to announce one of the elite co drivers Crunch Bennett, his experience will be of great help to Jono on and off the rally stages.  

Crunch has won numerous rounds and titles of the NZRC in his 38 years of rallying and has competed Internationally in Asia and USA where in 1998 he placed 2nd overall with Geof Argyle in the International Rally of USA. That same year he won the Woolf-Whittaker Trophy with Argyle as the leading NZers on the WRC Rally of NZ. Also from that year Crunch started his 20 year stint serving on the Board of MotorSport NZ where one of his areas of expertise was the future of Rallying in NZ. He was instrumental with Neil Allport in introducing the Stage Note system into NZ Rallying and also in running the first ever MSNZ sanctioned Rally Co-Drivers Academy in Wellington in the early 2000's. During the time he was also rarely out of a rally car. He spent his competition years mentoring young competitors (race and rally) who became future NZ Rally Champions and NZRC round winners. Notwithstanding one of his circuit competitors suceeding as a V* Champion as well. Crunch was bestowed the MSNZ Award of Merit by MotorSport NZ for his services to the sport. When approached with this opportunity with Jono, his recent long recovery from injuries suffered in a rally crash nearly 18 months ago, was cast to the back of his mind. "Any opportunity to help a rising talent in our demanding and a lot of the times, unforgiving sport; is one I enjoy. I know I can help from inside the car, I know how a relaxed relationship inside a "pressure-cooker" helps with the results and I am lucky enough to know what it feels like to achieve success as a team in such a demanding sport".  

The pair are looking forward to their first event on the 18th of October in the Driven Rally Bay of Plenty.

Tue, 8 Sep 2020 - Otago Rally already on track for April 2021

Planning is well already underway for the running of the 2021 Otago Rally, scheduled to be held from April 18 to 21 next year. 

This year’s rally was cancelled because of COVID-19, however, organisers from the Otago Sports Car Club are already well down the track as they prepare for 2021.

“The route will be pretty much as planned for the cancelled 2020 event, with a few minor changes,” event spokesman Roger Oakley said.

“Even now, COVID-19 is the major uncertainty for organisers, but we are confident that the 2021 event will be able to occur with no restriction for those within New Zealand.”

The situation for international competitors, spectators and media will, however, remain uncertain for some time to come.

“We wish to reassure international competitors that they can complete the 'Intention to Enter' and subsequently lodge an entry with the assurance that it will be fully refunded, no matter how late they may need to withdraw, if circumstances demand,” Oakley added.

As in previous years, the Otago Rally will offer a range of assistance packages to international competitors for 2021.

The rally will honour the commitments made to those competitors who were offered similar packages for 2020, and will contact them gauge their interest for 2021.

In a major boost for the rally, Dunedin City Council have confirmed their funding for next year.

“We are hugely appreciative of their active support and encouragement,” Oakley said.

“In fact, with the support of the City, we will be introducing a range of initiatives to promote Dunedin and rallying to as wide an audience as possible.”

The Otago Rally will be the first Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship event since the COVID-19 interruption, with the event team keen to take on the responsibility to kick-start rallying in 2021 in the best way possible.The rally will offer two days of rallying on some of the best stages in New Zealand, with 280 kilometres of stages, a two-pass recce, and 90% public roads. 

The Otago Rally receives Major Events funding from Dunedin City Council, and is supported by the Otago Community Trust.

Wed, 26 Aug 2020 - COVID-19 restrictions put 2020 Targa NZ plans on hold

The on-again/off-again nature of restrictions – particularly in the greater Auckland region - put in place by the Government to try and stem the ‘second wave’ of the COVID-19 Coronavirus tide have claimed their first major scalp of the 2020/21 summer motor racing season – what was to be the 26th annual Targa NZ tarmac motor rally.      

Event owner and director Peter Martin of the Wiri, Auckland-based Ultimate Rally Group, had already trimmed this year’s multi-day event from 5 to 4 days, brought the date back by 10 days – to Oct 14-18 – and pencilled in a route closer to his Auckland base, in an effort to make it as easy on intending competitors as possible to enter in these difficult times.

However late last week the restrictions on travel by Aucklanders in and out of the region under Alert Level 3 forced him to put plans for the 2020 meeting on hold.      

As he told event regulars personally, and published in a post on the event’s Facebook page (www.targa.nz); “It is with a heavy heart and realisation we announce that the Targa NZ event due for October 2020 will not be able to run on the set dates.      

“Given the recent COVID-19 Level 3 restrictions around the Auckland region and the Level 2 restrictions across the wider country, we are simply not able to continue with the resident consultation process scheduled at this time to meet the requirements set out by the local councils from whom we obtain the road closures.      

“Added to this is the delay of the election to the 17th October, which now falls within the planned event dates. The effect to the wider communities trying to get out to vote on the day means that a number of the roads we have applied for which encompass facilities, such as schools being used as Polling Booths, are now no longer available.”       Though he is looking at alternative dates, and that for now, at least, the 2020 event is postponed Martin stresses that the fluid state of the Government’s response to the current state of COVID-19 play means he doesn’t know himself what exactly those dates may be.      

“With the speed with which the COVID-19 virus can return and with the long lead times required by councils for road closure applications to be processed, we are not yet in a position to set an alternative date that we can be confident will eventuate.”    

Sun, 9 Aug 2020 - Summerfield wins Catlins Coast Rally

Matt Summerfield of Christchurch drove superbly to win the twentieth edition of the Catlins Coast Rally in his Mitsubishi Mirage AP4 on Saturday.  

Summerfield won four of the six Special Stages, taking the lead after the third, and building a gap of 52 seconds before Gore driver Andrew Graves won the final stage, cutting the margin to 38.8 seconds at the finish. “We had a really good day, you have to drive pretty hard to beat Duggie (Graves)”, said Summerfield. “We had a spin in the first stage and I had to change what I was doing but the day went pretty smoothly. It was a good battle and it is a great event. Duggie really kept the pressure on. This makes up for the last two years. In 2018 we were going well and had a problem and last year we went off the road. I have to thank everyone behind the effort, even my sister Nicole who vacated the co-driver seat to let my sponsor and friend Jared Christofferson sit with me. Jared and I had driven together for those last two years and I got him on board again because we were going to get this bloody thing.”  

Four-time winner Graves, with son Hayden co-driving, finished second in his ageing Mitsubishi EVO 3 after winning the first and last stages of the event. He paid tribute to an “exceptional” drive by Summerfield. “Credit to Matt, he did very well. We are happy with second and Hayden and everyone who helped me did a great job.”  

Kaikoura driver Regan Ross, a late entry into the event, was third almost three minutes behind Graves in a new Ford Fiesta R5 which he had only got running on Monday night. “We exceeded expectations, we had only just driven up and down the road at home before coming here. We did heaps of learning in the car today.”  

Three-time winner, Dean Bond of Balclutha, was fourth and took the Kerry O’Donohue Memorial Trophy along with co-driver Scott Milne for the first South Otago crew home in their Mitsubishi EVO 6.5. Canterbury’s Josh Marston in his first start at Catlins in fifteen years was fifth after going into the final stage third. “It was a hell of an experience. We had fun, the car went well and I enjoyed the roads. I need to come back with more knowledge. I was disappointed to lose a couple of places in the last stage but it was insanely fast with crests. The regulars knew where the roads go.” Marston had come south to set a pace and keep to it in search of Mainland Rally Series points and that is exactly what he did.  

Deane Buist was the first 2-wheel-drive competitor home in sixth place with fellow Cantabrians Matthew Wright, last year’s winner Garet Thomas, Marcus Van Klink and David Clearwater completing the top ten with New Zealand Champion Ben Hunt of Auckland eleventh in a normally aspirated Subaru Impreza H6.

Richie Chadwick of Dunedin in his Toyota Levin won the Glen Shirlaw Memorial Trophy as the first Otago Sports Car Club driver home in fourteenth place and along with co-driver and wife Rachel also took the Custom Build Engineering Ltd Class B laurels.  

Several competitors struck problems including Hayden Paddon, who while not competing was using the event as a test session, in his Hyundai i20 AP4. Unfortunately, Paddon had to park the car after just two stages.  

Both Robbie Stokes and Sean Haggarty, seeded inside the top ten, were well placed early on only to suffer problems. Stokes was third after two stages but retired with an oil leak while Haggarty was fourth at that point but trouble struck.  He continued and ended the day twelfth. Barry Mills of Balclutha was another casualty with a water leak, only the third time in twenty years he has not finished the rally. Tenth seed John Giltrap and sixteenth seed Mark McMillan were others not to finish. Sixty-two of the eighty-one starters made it to the end.  

With the top three placegetters ineligible for class honours it was Dean Bond who took the Valley Coachlines 4-wheel-drive Class D from Marston and Thomas while Buist took the Ritchies 1601cc & over Class C from Van Klink. Matthew Wright took the Stadium Finance Class E Pre 1996 4WD class from Tom Bond (Dunedin) and Murray Marshall (Kaitangata).  

Chadwick took Class B 1301-1600cc from Tim Smith of Christchurch while New Zealand Champion Ben Hunt won the Magnum Motorsport Class H. Winton drivers took the two classic classes with Brendon Mitchell winning the Balclutha Auto Electrics 0-1700cc Class F and Stephen Gill the Derek Ayson PGG Wrightson Real Estate Class G (1701cc & over).  

Harri Judd of Christchurch won the Balclutha Auto Electrics Class A from Marty Roestenburg of Auckland.  

The Advance Agriculture Novice driver prizes went to Tim Mackersy and Peter Bowden respectively with Robert Burrows and Chris Pinches taking the co-driver honours.    

The Eastern Southland Car Club is delighted to have the support of the Clutha Licensing Trust through their Rosebank Lodge Balclutha establishment, plus  Southroads, Owaka Motors, Yuasa Batteries and Stadium Finance. The club is also especially grateful to Rayonier Matariki Forests, the Clutha District Council and the McNab Family for their assistance with the event.  

Fri, 7 Aug 2020 - Twenty years of Catlins, Graves, Mills and Ayson

It is a special year for the Catlins Coast Rally this year as the Eastern Southland Car Club hold the 20th edition of the event on Saturday 8 August.  

Amongst the eighty-four entries are two drivers, Andrew Graves of Gore and Barry Mills of BaIclutha, who have competed in every single one – with a fair degree of success to boot. There is another as well, Derek Ayson, who did the first eighteen before helping the club by performing Zero Car duties for the last two years.  

Graves has both driven and co-driven in the event and has experienced wins in both roles. As co-driver for Derek Ayson, the duo won the event in 2005 before Graves took the wheel himself. He remembers the 2007 event well, because he rolled, but after stepping into his Mitsubishi EVO 3 Graves took wins in the event in both 2010 and 2013 before returning to the co-driver seat alongside Tony Quinn in 2014 and 2015. He returned to the driver seat, once again in his EVO 3, before winning in 2017 and 2018. Last year he grabbed the lead early and was cruising with a comfortable lead only to slide off the road in Stage 5 after a wheel parted company with the car.  

“I really enjoy the rally. I look forward to it every year. I am looking forward to it this year. It is a tough field including Josh Marston of Christchurch.” Graves has co-driven for three seasons with Marston in a Holden Barina as they campaigned in the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship where they finished runner-up last season. While Graves has co-driven for Marston, “this will be the first time I have gone head to head with Josh.”

 “He is an impressive driver,” says Andrew reflecting on his time alongside Marston. “I have done more Catlins rallies though but his car is the latest technology so it should be good fun. Whatever happens we will still have a beer together at the end of the day.”  

Asking for a favourite Catlins memory proves a struggle for Graves. “I guess the first win was good. I realised we were at that top level then. It was pretty awesome. Winning with my previous co-driver Jared Leebody was great and it is good now to have my son Hayden aboard. He is seventeen and Graves says it would be “great for Hayden to drive in the event one day, maybe with me as co-driver, when he can afford to pay the bills,” he jokes.  

Barry Mills from Balclutha is the other driver to have done every Catlins. He too, has done exceptionally well over the years. Driving an elderly 2-wheel-drive Hillman Avenger, Mills has defied the age of the car to bring it home in the top ten more than ten times in the nineteen Catlins Coast Rally’s he has done to date, most recently last year when he finished tenth. Between 1999 and 2016 Mills finished every Catlins Rally but his record took a hit in 2017 when he did not finish after a mechanical problem and then again in 2018 when he rolled the car in Stage 1 of the event. He bounced back to record his latest top ten result last year. Pressed for a favourite memory he nominates the first Catlins Rally all the way back in 1999 when he finished third equal.  

Like Graves, Mills has his son Daniel in the co-driver’s seat and says, “Daniel wants to drive but I haven’t given up yet!” Like most of the drivers in the event this year with lockdown and cancellations of events Mills has done little of late. “I did the Circle Hill Rallysprint and finished eleventh and won my class but that is the only outing for quite a long time.”  

Ayson did eighteen straight Catlins Rally’s finishing all bar one, when he had an engine problem which forced him out. For the last two years he has assisted the club by performing Zero Car duties in his Ford Ranger, meaning he has driven the roads in those two years as well. While it is not the same Ayson says, “it is nice to be behind the wheel. I enjoy the camaraderie and it is still good to drive the roads.”  

The highlight for Ayson was his win in 2005, the other enduring memory from that day his battle with Hayden Paddon who went on to become the only kiwi to date to win a World Rally Championship event while he also won the 2011 Production World Rally Championship.  

“We knew he was going to go far, even at that stage and he took a bit out of us in the first stage and we were clawing our way back. I think he had gearbox issues but we both remember that battle.”  

The rally will commence at 10.00am on Saturday 8 August adjacent to Owaka Motors and will feature approximately 153 km of high-speed Special Stages at Puaho, Catlins Valley, McNab’s Farm, Tawanui, Cannibal Bay and Romahapa.   The event will conclude at Owaka at 3,40pm that afternoon.  

The Eastern Southland Car Club is delighted to have the support of the Clutha Licensing Trust through their Rosebank Lodge Balclutha establishment, plus  Southroads, Owaka Motors, Yuasa Batteries and Stadium Finance. The club is also especially grateful to Rayonier Matariki Forests, the Clutha District Council and the McNab Family for their assistance with the event.  

Fri, 7 Aug 2020 - Fantastic field for twentieth Catlins Coast Rally

The Catlins Coast Rally celebrates twenty years of action this Saturday and the spectacular entry list of more than eighty competitors is appropriate for such a momentous occasion.  

Spectators will see some of the biggest names in New Zealand rallying with no less a driver than Hayden Paddon running at the head of the field, not competing, but testing his Hyundai i20 AP4. It is an amazing opportunity for local motorsport fans to see the only kiwi to win a World Rally Championship event, a former Production World Rally Champion and four-time New Zealand Rally Champion in action. Paddon will run with notes to prepare for upcoming events, something the actual rally participants will not be able to use.  

Four-time Catlins Coast Rally winner Andrew Graves with son Hayden in the co-driver’s seat is the top seed in his ageing but fast Mitsubishi EVO 3. Graves was well on target for win number five last year only to lose a wheel and go off the road on the penultimate stage while leading by over three minutes.  

At two and three are top New Zealand Rally Championship contenders Matt Summerfield and Josh Marston respectively. Both have been extremely prominent in the New Zealand Rally Championship over the past few years with Summerfield, who will pilot his Mitsubishi Mirage, seldom out of the top four in recent years and Marston in his Holden Barina AP4 claiming third and second in the last two championships.  

Robbie Stokes of Waikuku, runner-up in the FIA Category 2-wheel-drive class of the NZ Rally Championship last year, will start at four in his Ford Fiesta AP4.   At five is last year’s winner Garet Thomas in his father-in-law Dave Ollis’ Subaru WRX Sti, the car he won the event in last year after entering the final stage in third place but advancing as other cars fell by the wayside. Thomas is also the current Mainland Rally Series Champion.  

Three-time winner Dean Bond of Balclutha who finished third last year is seeded at six this year in his EVO 6.5.   Two-time New Zealand Rally Champion, Ben Hunt of Auckland, who is the reigning national champion will also contest the event in a Subaru Impreza H6.  

The battles throughout the many classes will also be hard fought as always.   For locals, a six-page rally guide is included in The Ensign this week and copies of these are available from the ODT office in Dunedin, The Clutha Leader office in Balclutha, The Ensign office in Gore, or at the Southland Express office in Invercargill. The event will be livestreamed on the Catlins Coast Rally facebook page with results live on chrisport.co.nz  

The rally will commence at 10.00am on Saturday 8 August from Campbell Street, adjacent to Owaka Motors in Owaka and will feature approximately 153 km of high-speed Special Stages before concluding back in Owaka just after 3.30pm that afternoon. Servicing will be held throughout the event in Owaka.  

The Eastern Southland Car Club is delighted to have the support of the Clutha Licensing Trust through their Rosebank Lodge Balclutha establishment, plus  Southroads, Owaka Motors, Yuasa Batteries and Stadium Finance. The club is also especially grateful to Rayonier Matariki Forests, the Clutha District Council and the McNab Family for their assistance with the event.
