Wed, 16 Oct 2019 - Thomson aims to secure third at Waitomo

Christchurch’s Dylan Thomson heads to the final round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, the Handy Rentals Waitomo Rally, looking for a result that will secure him third in the championship.

In what has been his first season in a four-wheel drive car, Thomson aimed to learn across the season, looking to complete every rally. His consistency and increasing speed saw him move into third in the championship after the fourth round, Rally Canterbury, then maintain the position through round five.

The final round has seen several new supporters join the team, notably the good sports at Stadium Cars and the team at Ingham Hyundai Hamilton, who along with the multiple partners that have sponsored the Specialised Auto Services Subaru Impreza STi have made the final round, and the opportunity to secure a podium championship result, a possibility.

Thomson holds a 21-point margin over fourth place and with 30 points the maximum available, knows that realistically a clean run should see him bag the position. However for co-driver Amy Hudson, there is only a six point gap back to fourth place in the co-drivers standings, leaving the pair with a decision to make as to how they will attack the event.

“We’ve probably never had so many people come on board for one event to get us to the final round, which is humbling and massively appreciated, so we have to make sure we repay them and secure this third in the championship,” says Thomson. “Obviously we’ve got a couple of different situations to balance, I’ve more or less got to finish to take third but Amy equally deserves third in the championship, which means we’ll need to push on a bit. We’ll have to play it by ear a bit on the day and just do what we’ve done all season.”

The 2019 Handy Rentals Waitomo Rally starts from Piopio at 7:25am, with six mammoth special stages totalling 198.04km of special stages in the Waikato region, before the rally finishes at Southwell School in Hamilton from 5pm.

Dylan Thomson Rallysport’s campaign is supported by Total Lubricants, Riordan and West Transport Pukekohe, Drew + Accounting, Harrier Signs, Specialised Auto Services, Steelrite Framing, LJ Hooker, Fowler Homes South Auckland and New Zealand, Stadium Cars, AA Autocentre Hornby, Jivan Produce, Dunlop, Dixcel and Braketech.

Tue, 15 Oct 2019 - Title on the line at Waitomo for van Klink

Christchurch’s Marcus van Klink heads to the final round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, the Handy Rentals Rally Waitomo, in a winner takes all shootout for top two-wheel drive honours.

The season could not have had a better start for van Klink and co-driver Dave Neill, the pair taking victory in each of the first four rounds and were looking to wrap up the title with a round to spare at round five, Rally Coromandel, however van Klink was side-lined in the week leading up to the event with a burst appendix and was forced to miss the event.

That means the pair head to the final round on equal points with rival Anthony Jones for the Motorsport NZ 2WD titles. Form sits with van Klink, who has been the two-wheel drive pace setter all season in the Universal Plumbing Triple Rotor Mazda RX-8, while the Waitomo event was the scene of the cars first class win when it debuted in the championship in 2017.

“I think it’s fair to say that going to Coromandel the plan wasn’t to come to Waitomo in a dead heat, but it’s certainly going to make for an exciting finish to the season,” says van Klink.

“Last time Waitomo ran as part of the championship, it was a really good, enjoyable event and as an added bonus, we won last time as part of a pretty tough season. We’re going to have to be on it right from the start.”

The 2019 Handy Rentals Waitomo Rally starts from Piopio at 7:25am, with six mammoth special stages totalling 198.04km of special stages in the Waikato region, before the rally finishes at Southwell School in Hamilton from 5pm.

Tue, 15 Oct 2019 - Sheehan on brink of first national title at Waitomo

Queenstown’s Mike Sheehan heads to the final round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship with one hand on the trophy, requiring only one point from the Handy Rentals Waitomo Rally this weekend.

In his first full season at a national level, Sheehan has been a model of consistency, securing top two placings in four of the five rounds to date that have secured him a 30-point lead prior to the season finale.

A season victory would continue a strong run for Sheehan, who twice was victorious in the Mainland Class B (1301-1600cc) in his first two full seasons of rallying, before setting his sights on the NZRC for 2019.

Having begun a partnership with experienced co-driver Glenn Goldring late in 2018, Sheehan has taken plenty from the relationship in the season to date.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying the relationship we’ve developed both inside and outside the car. We have a lot of laughs, but Goldie is also a man who knows how to get down to business when it matters,” says Sheehan.

Another new addition to the team that has lifted them in 2019 is crew chief Paul Cartmell, who comes with a large deal of professionalism and knowledge after stints with several top teams in recent seasons.

“Waitomo presents another opportunity to learn and experience some more top quality New Zealand roads, with the stages looking fast but technical, with several sections that look like they could catch out the unwary – I can’t wait to tackle them in the Truck Moves Ford Fiesta R2.

“Our sponsors have been key to making this season possible. We cannot thank them enough for their support.”

Sheehan and the team would like to thank Truck Moves NZ, Frankton Automotive, Frankton Tyre Services, Interislander, Speedy Signs & EmbroidMe Queenstown, Winmax by Paddon Rallysport and Palmside for their support throughout the 2019 season.

The 2019 Handy Rentals Waitomo Rally starts from Piopio at 7:25am, with six mammoth special stages totalling 198.04km of special stages in the Waikato region, before the rally finishes at Southwell School in Hamilton from 5pm.

Sat, 28 Sep 2019 - MotorSport NZ rapt with WRC return

MotorSport New Zealand personnel are delighted to see the overnight news that Rally New Zealand will once again feature as a FIA World Rally Championship event in 2020 after an eight-year hiatus.

“To see the 2020 FIA WRC calendar come out this week with New Zealand taking a 3-6 September slot is evidence of Rally New Zealand’s continued professionalism and passion to again share our iconic rally roads with the world’s best rally drivers,” says Wayne Christie, President of MotorSport NZ.

“This is a fantastic result for the hard-working team at Rally New Zealand who never stopped communicating with WRC Promoter for the opportunity for New Zealand to get back on the WRC calendar.”

MotorSport NZ and a number of member clubs have pledged support and manpower to help the Rally New Zealand team deliver the four-day event, which will be based in Auckland with the rally route expected to head both north and south of New Zealand’s biggest city as it did in previous events.

Christie has heard of many volunteer marshals and officials who are keen to reprise their roles from the last incarnation of Rally New Zealand in 2012, also based in Auckland, to help deliver an event to FIA and WRC standards.

“New Zealand is fortunate to have hundreds of extremely capable motorsport volunteers and I’m sure our people will be 100% focused on delivering a world-class event to ensure that the New Zealand round of the 2020 WRC is one of the very best next season,” says Christie.

“The WRC is one of leading global motorsport championships with last year’s championship watched by over 825 million viewers across 155 markets on television, and billions of online impressions,” says Rally New Zealand CEO, Michael Goldstein, who has led the ongoing bid to get Rally New Zealand back onto the WRC calendar.

WRC Promoter managing director Oliver Ciesla is looking forward to New Zealand’s return to the global calendar. “We are excited about returning to New Zealand which has such a storied history in rally sport. New Zealand is noted for its magnificent scenery, superb rally roads and such a strong rally community and we can’t wait to bring our championship to your shores, to give our teams the chance to compete here again and to bring stunning pictures of the country to WRC fans around the world,” says Ciesla.

The event has the backing of Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED).

The WRC calendar is decided year to year, so at this point there is no certainty if and when Rally New Zealand will be a WRC event in the future.

Wed, 25 Sep 2019 - Never easier 'to do' Targa than in 25th anniversary year

The annual Targa New Zealand tarmac motor rally is 25 this year and the man behind it, Peter Martin of the Ultimate Rally Group, says it has never been easier to enter the event than in its anniversary year.

This year the annual five-day event, which Martin markets as ‘The Ultimate Road Race,’ starts in Taupo on Tuesday October 29 and ends in Palmerston North on Saturday November 02. And with three separate starting groups - Competition, the Targa Tour and now a Time Trial organised in conjunction with the Vintage Car Club or New Zealand - Martin reckons that if anyone has ever harboured a desire to do the event, then this is the year to turn dream into reality.

“Seriously,” he said this week. “While we have already had a fantastic response from our regulars (with over 60 already signed on in the main Competition section, over 30 in the Targa Tour and now more than 20 in the VCC Time Trial) there is plenty of room for more. Our systems are designed for up to 150 cars in the Competition section alone, and because all our entry and documentation systems are now computerised, we can take entries across our three categories up until 5.00pm on Monday October 28, the day before the event actually starts.”

As a very much hands-on former competitor and now event owner and manager Martin says that in the vast majority of cases actually committing to do ‘your first Targa’ is the hardest part.

“Believe me,” he says, “I’ve heard all the excuses, and all the reasons why somebody ‘can’t do Targa.’ So what I’m doing is pushing back and saying ‘yes you can.’

“You want to do it but ‘don’t have either ‘a’ car or ‘the right’ car?” No problem, get in touch with me and I will find you either a car to buy or one to lease.

“Like the idea of ‘doing a Targa’ but don’t think you are up for the competition side of things? Again, no problem, that was one of the reasons the Targa Tour was set up for. You get to use the same closed public roads as the competition cars but in convoy with other Tour-goers in their road cars.

“I’m also very proud of our latest ‘product’, the Vintage Car Club Time Trial. Again, you are taking advantage of the road closures we organise for the Competition and Tour sections, but in this case the skill is driving to a set, average, stage speed, rather than as fast as you can. Don’t think that you need a pukka veteran car to do it either. The Vintage Car Club of New Zealand operates a rolling eligibility limit of 30 years meaning that this year you could compete in a car built in 1989.”

“Finally, if you have a car and the desire to ‘do a Targa’ but for whatever reason simply do not have the time to commit to the full five-days, we are also this year running a two-day Regional Event starting in Whanganui on Thursday October 31 and joining the fun, if you like, for the final two days in the Manawatu, Central Plateau, Rangitikei and Tararua regions.”

After celebrating the 20th anniversary of Targa NZ with a marathon first foray to the South Island in 2014, then returning again last year, this year’s 25th anniversary event has come back to what Martin describes as its North Island ‘roots.’

“Year-in, year-out councils in regions like the greater Waikato, Taranaki, Rangitikei, Manawatu-Wanganui and Central North Island areas welcome us back so this year we decided to keep our focus on these areas this time around.

“Obviously – when you are bringing a travelling road show of over 100 competing vehicles and probably another 100 associated with them – we bring hundreds of thousands of dollars into these districts at what for most is a shoulder season between winter and summer. But it’s certainly nice when that contribution is acknowledged, not to mention sought out again in subsequent years.”

Targa New Zealand events are organised by the Ultimate Rally Group with the support of sponsors AndrewSimms.co.nz, Chicane Racewear, Global Security, NZ Classic Car magazine, Race Brakes, Race4Life Trust, Racetech, TrackIt, Vital and Writeraze.

Mon, 23 Sep 2019 - Paddon shatters Ashley Forest hillclimb record to take win

Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon and his Paddon Rallysport team has shattered the Ashley Forest Rallysprint record with a blistering time of 52.77 seconds in the Hyundai AP4++ to win the high-profile hillclimb event.

The 1.7-km North Canterbury hillclimb was first run in 1979 by Canterbury’s RATEC Motorsport Club and attracts an array of local, national and international competitors. The previous record of 54.96 seconds was set by Sloan Cox on his way to winning the 2017 event and prior to that, the record of 56.57 seconds set by the late Kim Austin stood for 17 years. Last year’s title went to Australia-based Scotsman Alister McRae in a car once rallied by Kiwi rally legend Possum Bourne.

The short, intense gravel hillclimb is an event that Paddon has always followed. He watched it on TV as a child, first contested it at the age of 14 and won it on his second attempt in 2011 with a time of 57.16 seconds.

“It’s nice to get it over the line and it’s quite a relief in some ways,” said Paddon after breaking the record for the first time on Sunday morning and going on to setting another new record and win the event on his final run on Sunday afternoon. “With the amount of work and obstacles thrown at us during the week up to the event, it’s quite amazing it’s turned out like this. It’s been a huge commitment from the team with the amount of work that’s gone in this week, so it’s very cool to break the record – that was our main goal.”

The non-delivery of a part for the engine that Paddon Rallysport intended to run in the Hyundai AP4++ was a curved ball. “We weren’t able to use the 800hp engine we were planning to use for this event, and in the end had to run a 500hp option so we were a bit up against it. But in some ways, it was really nice because we had to try and find other ways to gain time. The whole team absolutely pulled together and never gave up, and we got the desired outcome in the end.”

Paddon describes the gravel hillclimb as offering near perfect conditions. “The temperature was perfect although the road was getting a little bit rough in a couple of places towards the end.”

The New Zealand Rally Championship Hyundai was transformed into hillclimb spec by Paddon Rallysport at their Cromwell workshop. “Chassis-wise and with its setup, the car has always worked very well, but compared to rally trim, we have nearly 200hp more and the aero is a step up from last year.”

Paddon’s main goal was to break the Ashley Forest record held by Sloan Cox. “To be honest, I didn’t think it was going to be possible after yesterday.”

Paddon finished Saturday’s qualifying runs with a best time of 57 seconds exactly, while Cox’s was 56.79 seconds. “But everything worked out really well today. We extracted almost as much as we could from the car, so it’s good to know there’s more to come. If we can get the engine package right for the future, there’s still unfinished business to come back and lower that time even further. Could we break 50 seconds? It’s a massive challenge and probably some kind of an engineering phenomenon as the margins get smaller and smaller, the faster you go. I know there’s a little more time in our last run today so you take that into the equation and a few other things, it could be possible, but obviously not easy!”

Paddon thrives on the intensity of competition. “You really can’t make any mistakes during the elimination runs on this 1.7-km stretch of hill. It was a real shame that Sloan went out a couple of runs from the end with his problems. It took some pressure off us which meant we could get through the elimination shootouts and put it all on the line for the last one, but it would have been great to have had that all-out battle with Sloan right down to the wire.”

Paddon gives special guests the thrill of a lifetime with a ride in the Hyundai’s passenger seat during each run. “For the last one it was a matter of finding someone light, and we’d been introduced to 12-year-old karter Louis Sharp – he was perfect for that last run! He’s passionate about motorsport and I made a deal with him that if I give you a ride today, you can give me a ride in a Formula 1 car one day!”

Paddon appreciates the support of Hyundai New Zealand, YES Power, Ben Nevis Station, Cusco, Winmax Brakes, GoPro, Smith Seeds, Pakn’Save and Z Energy.

Wed, 11 Sep 2019 - MotorSport NZ supports Hawkeswood’s Chinese APRC finale bid

New Zealand rally driver Andrew Hawkeswood is heading to the final round of the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship in China this October with support from MotorSport New Zealand.

In March, MotorSport New Zealand released details of a $5,000 grant for one New Zealand competitor who qualified for October’s APRC final in China.

Auckland-based Hawkeswood qualified for the APRC final by gaining points in the first two qualifying rounds which were run in New Zealand. The Otago Rally was an APRC round for the first time, while the International Rally of Whangarei has been the New Zealand APRC round since 2007. This year, the APRC included rounds in Australia, Japan, Indonesia, and also China’s finale.

In a significant change from most rally championships where competitors earn championship points based on their finishing positions in all rounds of the championship, this year, the APRC championship titles are being decided in China. The reasoning behind the change was so that competitors didn’t need to travel to several countries to compete for the championship title. So Hawkeswood and co-driver Jeff Cress could potentially come home as New Zealand’s next APRC champions.

Hawkeswood will contest Rally China, based in Longyou, 400km south-west of Shanghai, with his Mazda 2 AP4 he used to finish fifth at Rally Otago earlier this year.

“It’s the first time I’ve actually competed in China, but I’ve travelled over for rallies there since 1998 helping other competitors, either running one of my cars or their own,” says Hawkeswood.

“It’s also going to be my last major rally. I’m just too busy with other projects and while I might do a few club rallysprints and the like, I’m stepping down from major competition."

Hawkeswood says the grant from MotorSport New Zealand was one of the incentives to confirm his entry. “My son Jack, who’s 18, also qualified for the final in China, so we were already taking Jack’s car. The freight costs weren’t significantly higher to take two cars, rather than one, so the MotorSport New Zealand grant helped me make the decision to go. I also want to support the Asia Pacific Rally Championship so to have two New Zealanders there will be important.”

Looking at online footage of previous events in the Longyou region, Hawkeswood says he thinks it’s going to be a rally of attrition. “The roads are part concrete, part gravel where you have to watch the edges which can have sharp drop-offs that could rip a wheel off. And with this year’s regulations meaning that the championship itself comes down to just this one event, if I can get to the end, who knows, I might be the champion…or Jack might become the youngest champion!”

MotorSport New Zealand President Wayne Christie says: “This year, the APRC working group made significant efforts to reinvigorate the championship, so as motorsport’s governing body in New Zealand, MotorSport NZ also wanted to support a New Zealand competitor who wanted to contest the 2019 final in China.

“We wish Andrew and Jeff all the very best, and best of luck also to our young Kiwi pairing of Jack Hawkeswood and Alex Parkin for their first event in China.”

A third New Zealander, Mike Young will also contest Rally China. Young has established a solid rally career in the Asia Pacific region and will compete in the 220km Longyou event in a Cusco Toyota.

New Zealander Hayden Paddon won the FIA APRC Pacific Rally Cup recently. This title went to the competitor who earned the most points in the four Pacific rounds – the two New Zealand rallies and two in Australia. With maximum points from his success in his Hyundai i20 AP4 car in Otago and Whangarei, Paddon then leased a Hyundai i20 R5 car in Australia to contest August’s Eureka Rally run in Victoria, just north of Melbourne. It’s a title Paddon also won ten years ago at the International Rally of Whangarei.

The FIA APRC has been in existence for more than 30 years and past winners include New Zealand greats Possum Bourne and Rod Millen, along with multiple World Rally Champion Carlos Sainz, and more recently, current WRC competitor Pontus Tidemand from Sweden.

Sat, 7 Sep 2019 - PADDON RETURNS

Hayden Paddon and John Kennard are set to contest two FIA World Rally Championship events before the end of the year – piloting the all-new Ford Fiesta R5 MkII at Wales Rally GB and returning to the wheel of the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC at Rally Australia.

As one of the sport’s most popular competitors, the rallying community were devastated when a stray rock put paid to Paddon’s Rally Finland ambitions earlier this year. But the New Zealander did not give up the fight and worked tirelessly with his backers to facilitate another outing at the sport’s highest level – his efforts rewarded with a further two events.

Chasing success in the WRC 2 Pro category, Paddon’s Wales Rally GB outing will act as the perfect means to get back into the swing of the FIA World Rally Championship, whilst also showcasing the power and performance of M-Sport’s latest challenger.

Having contested the British event on nine previous occasions, Paddon knows the Welsh forests well – twice finishing on the support-category podium and securing his best result of fourth overall at the end of a strong and consistent 2016 season.

As a talented competitor on all surfaces, Paddon has eight top-three finishes to his name – securing his first podium in 2015 and claiming a maiden victory with an unforgettable performance at the 2016 edition of Rally Argentina.

And there’s no doubt he’ll be looking to add to those accolades when he returns to the wheel of the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC at the season finale in Australia.

Contesting the Australian fixture on eight previous occasions, it’s a rally he and Kennard know equally well and they have the results to prove it – with four top-five finishes in the past four years which include two podiums as well as the runner-up spot last year.

Team Principal, Richard Millener, said:

“After what happened in the lead-up to Finland, it was clear that a lot of the fans were desperate to see Hayden back behind the wheel. We gave him some thoughts and advice on what was needed to compete with us again, and within three weeks he was pretty much there!

“The backing and budget he was able to secure has allowed us to offer him two events – one with the Ford Fiesta R5 at Wales Rally GB, and another with the Ford Fiesta WRC at Rally Australia.

“The WRC 2 Pro series is extremely competitive at the moment so it’s great to add another top-line driver into the mix. With Hayden’s experience of all different kinds of cars we’re sure he’ll be able to show the capabilities of the new Fiesta R5.

“As for Rally Australia I think it’s clear what he aims to do there, and it will be great to see him back battling the WRC regulars. He and John certainly have the potential to deliver two really strong performances, and I’m one of many who are excited to see what they can do.”

Hayden Paddon said:

“We are really excited to get back behind the wheel. After the disappointment of Finland there was no way we could let that be the end of it and, together with M-Sport, we have worked hard to find some solutions. I really can’t thank everyone enough for their continued help and support; and a special thanks to HNZ who have again allowed this opportunity to happen.

“I’m really looking forward to driving M-Sport’s new R5 on an event we are familiar with and will aim to showcase its capabilities. It’s also good to get more seat time which, combined with testing both the R5 and the WRC, is something we have been lacking this year. But getting back in the world rally car at Rally Australia will be the real highlight, and I can’t wait.

“We’re not treating these rallies as a ‘last chance.’ We want to relax and enjoy the whole experience which will allow the results to come naturally. These are both rallies we know well and I feel I’m at a good level. There’s no reason we can’t deliver some strong results, but it’s important we don’t go chasing them – just let them come naturally.”
