Paddon launches home WRC campaign

The Kiwi will continue his association with Hyundai New Zealand for his home World Rally Championship round, as the car also features increased backing from Repco.

The automotive parts retailer can be the naming rights backer of exactly what will function as first WRC round in New Zealand in ten years.

Paddon and long-time co-driver John Kennard are section of a 12-car WRC2 field that also contains Supercars star Shane van Gisbergen and Australian Rally Champion Harry Bates.

Weve been waiting 10 years for Repco Rally New Zealand another, also to be here with this own car and own team, representing New Zealand is something were worked up about, and pretty proud about too, said Paddon.

Were in the WRC2 class and the expectation would be to win. Thats what we have been here to accomplish, but we’ve some pretty strong competition and we must do plenty of good prep. But we’ve strong understanding of the stages, so hopefully we are able to give it an excellent nudge.

Its great to possess Repco seriously board to check our Hyundai New Zealand programme is really a natural fit. We actually want to represent both of the brands along with the podium.

I believe the WRC2 field for the function is quite strong, with Kiwi and Australian competitors. You have Australian Rally Champion Harry Bates, you then throw in past NZ champion Ben Hunt and Supercars star Shane van Gisbergen. It;s likely to be considered a nice battle to become a section of.

Repco Rally New Zealand will need place between September 29 and October 2.
