Wed, 15 Aug 2018 - Coromandel unfinished business for Paddon 

This Saturday’s Hyundai NZ Gold Rush Rally of Coromandel represents unfinished business for Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon – it’s the one national rally he’s never won.

Paddon returns to Coromandel for just the second time, contesting round five of this year’s Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship with Malcolm Peden returning for his second event as Paddon’s co-driver.

Paddon is looking forward to tackling Coromandel’s winding roads in his Hyundai i20 AP4+ for what’s expected to be a hotly-contested rally among the frontrunners. Last year’s Coromandel Rally winner Australian Brendon Reeves is seeded second to Paddon’s number one seed status.

“It’s a unique rally in the championship,” says Paddon from Paddon Rallysport’s base in Auckland. “It’s certainly the most twisty with average speeds down to as low as 70km/h on some stages. This make it quite different to the fast-flowing stages that dominate our national championship.”

Having gone off the road in special stage four last year and therefore not finished the rally, Paddon is certainly not lacking motivation to score a good result. “It’s fair to say I have some unfinished business here, being the only national event we haven’t won.”

Paddon is also happy to have Cambridge’s Malcolm Peden as his co-driver again. “Unfortunately John has business commitments in Europe so it’s great to have Mal alongside us again – he’s looking forward to it too. As we have already done one event together this year [Whangarei in May], things should click well.”

Paddon Rallysport utilised a recent ride day with major partner Hyundai for their pre-event testing. “This helped us shake the car down for the rally and it’s always great strapping guests in the car and seeing how they react. They all certainly have a new appreciation for the sport when they get out of the car!”

With the service park in Whitianga, the Rally of Coromandel is a compact event, utilising three key stages near Kennedy Bay, north of Coromandel township; Waiau and Coroglen, south of Coromandel, plus a short street sprint in Whitianga to create an eight-stage rally comprising 113.93km. Weather forecasts show rain is expected before the rally, potentially making the third run through the stage near Waiau a muddy challenge for the 60-strong field of entrants. Finer weather is forecast for Saturday itself.

As top seeds, Paddon and Peden are scheduled to start the first special stage, Kennedy Bay, at 8.23am on Saturday.

Their action for the day concludes around 4.40pm with a 1km super special stage in Whitianga. Paddon RallySport appreciates the support of their exclusive partners, Hyundai New Zealand, Pak’nSave, Winmax Brake Pads and Z Energy.

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 - Sheehan secures strong result at Catlins

Queenstown’s Mike Sheehan has continued his strong season with a solid second place in class at the Catlins Coast Rally, based from Balclutha, over the weekend.

Sheehan came to the event looking forward to contesting the closest thing to a home rally for him and got faster and faster as the day went on, recording the 27th fastest time on stage one before stepping up to 17th fastest in stage three, despite the flat out roads not suiting the Truck Moves Ford Fiesta R2, which spent plenty of time on the rev limiter across the day. The hard charging saw Sheehan and co-driver Janey Blair under the class record time on several stages.

After driving to secure a second in class B for 1301-1600cc two-wheel drive cars and the handy points for the Mainland Series that went with it, Sheehan came home 21st overall, second in class and importantly extending his lead in Class B for the Mainland Series.

“I’m rapt with the step up in performance year on year in my driving and to beat a couple of stage records was pretty cool,” says Sheehan, who did his first rally at Catlins two years ago. “A top 20 at Catlins would’ve been awesome, but at the end of the day it wasn’t worth risking the points, so we bought it home.”

Sheehan and his team now head North for this weekend’s Hyundai Goldrush Rally Coromandel, the fifth round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship. It will be an event of new experiences, with Sheehan teaming up alongside co-driver Glenn Goldring after their scheduled debut at the South Canterbury Rally was postponed with engine issues.

The Whitianga-based event will also be the first time Sheehan has competed in the North Island and he sees it as an opportunity to learn technical and twisty roads, a complete contrast to the wide-open gravel highways of last weekend’s Catlins event.

“The only goal this weekend is to get to the finish. The final two rounds of the NZRC this year really are about learning, we’ve never competed in the North Island before so it’s a case of expanding the knowledge base. We certainly won’t learn anything parked in the trees, so getting through cleanly on the technical roads will be the key.”

The Hyundai NZ Goldrush Rally Coromandel takes place on August 18, starting from Whitianga and taking teams across the Coromandel Peninsula for eight special stages totalling 114 kilometres.

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 - Gilmour has a podium in her sights for Coromandel

A podium finish is at the forefront of Emma Gilmour’s goals for the fifth round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship at the Coromandel Peninsula this weekend.

The Dunedin rally driver has come tantalisingly close, with two fourth places to her name this season and a last-stage puncture robbing her of a podium at the Otago-based opening round.

“We have made some improvements to our Vantage Windows and Doors Suzuki Swift AP4 since the last round in Canterbury and we will be hoping for a bit more speed out of our 1600cc engine. We are aiming for a podium at Coromandel and we believe it is an achievable target,” Emma says.

The one-day Coromandel rally will be based at Whitianga’s Mercury Bay Sports Multi-Sport Park, which will host Rally HQ and the service park. Competition will take place over 114 kilometres of special stages on forestry and public roads around the Thames and Coromandel districts. The event will feature some gravel roads, which were last used for rallying on the 1979 International Motogard Rally of NZ.

“I enjoy the Coromandel roads and it will be great to have a two-pass recce over the stages beforehand as it helps with fine-tuning our pace notes,” Emma says, of the process that she and co-driver Anthony McLoughlin go through before each rally. The first car starts from the Mercury Bay Multi-Sports Park at 7am on Saturday. The first car will finish around 4.47pm at Blacksmiths Lane.

Emma would like to thank her sponsors Suzuki NZ, Vantage Windows and Doors, Gilmour Motors Suzuki, Koba Batteries, Rothbury Insurance Brokers, PPG Paint, Castrol, Hella, Uniform NZ, Provident, Interislander, NGK Spark Plugs, Custom Signs, Modena Race Gears, Pure Sports Nutrition and Webdesign for supporting the team.

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 - Cox makes gains in rallycross competition

New Zealander Sloan Cox came away from the third round of his RX Academy campaign in Finland having made further performance gains.

The rally-turned-rallycross driver from Rotorua took a race win during the qualifying rounds of the 11 August event at the Jalasjärvi national rallycross circuit, his first win in this series. While he didn’t make the top four for the round final, Cox was feeling encouraged by his improved speed against the other young drivers competing in this year’s RX Academy programme.

The first New Zealander to contest the RX Academy which includes five rounds and a comprehensive coaching programme, Cox is enjoying the challenges of learning a new form of motorsport

“The racing didn’t go as I wanted it to but I’m not looking at that negatively as I definitely learnt a lot over the weekend,” said Cox at the conclusion of Saturday’s competition. “I feel I got more from this event than I probably have from the first two.”

Having converted his New Zealand four-wheel-drive Evo X rally car into front-wheel-drive (FWD) specifically for the purpose of learning more about the specifics of being fast in a FWD before this round, Cox said: “Coming into it I knew it would be interesting after the second round results and the work I’ve done in our FWD. To win my first race in the qualifying heats was good. I didn’t necessarily have the speed, but managed to get out in front and keep the lead. I knew I should have had more speed, perhaps I was being too cautious.”

After each heat or race, competitors can review their performance with the Academy driving coaches. “We looked at what I needed to work on, and the second race felt a lot better, with better speed, although having started with the less favourable outside starting position and not having the best start, I was last in the field of four, so I jokered early to try and catch the pack, but with identical cars, we’re all so even that I struggled to pass.”

Cox has been soaking up all the information he can on rallycross strategies. With the short five-lap races and the requirement that each driver must do one ‘joker’ lap around a usually longer course in each race, he says it’s not all about being the quickest driver. “Each time I learn more about where to make the most of passing opportunities.”

On the back row for the semi-final, Cox says he choose to joker on the first lap. “But I was right behind another guy for all five laps and couldn’t quite find that opportunity to pass – I almost did, but it’s hard to make the passing moves stick. Compared to round two when I fell away behind the pack, this weekend I was right there up with the others, giving it everything I could, watching in case one of the others made a mistake.

“It was a cool feeling to be that close, and even though I didn’t make it through to the final, I feel positive. I know what I need to do for the next round – you’ve got to qualify well to get a front row start for the semi – most of the time the guys in those positions make it to the final. You’ve really got to be on the money from the start.”

One of the challenges of the Jalasjärvi round, which was run under Finnish series rules, was that the official practice sessions were just two runs of two laps each. “So it’s not long to learn the circuit before you’re right into the heats. I really liked the track; it had a short joker lap so that made for good racing with different strategies to the other tracks we’ve raced on. The next two rounds are run under Nordic series rules which have more practice laps.”

The next round takes place on 26 August at Kouvola. Cox is staying in Europe and will use some of this time to review in-car footage before the Academy’s next test and coaching day on 23 August. “I’ll focus on what I can improve, how to get off the mark faster. Perhaps I need to not be too afraid to make a mistake and to push harder from that first qualifying.”

He adds: “The time I had in our new FWD car at home made a big difference, I was more relaxed and the speed is coming more naturally. Each time I felt I knew what I needed to improve on. So it’s been a really good step forward.” The five-round 2018 RX Academy wraps up with the final on 7 October at Tierps in Sweden. The winner of RX Academy 2018 will claim a free drive in the 2019 FIA European Rallycross Championship for Super1600, or the chance to compete in the five European-based rounds of the RX2 International Series, the support category to the FIA World Rallycross Championship. Cox’s 2018 rallycross campaign is supported by Taslo Engineering, AJ’s Emporium, Driveline Automotive, Signedge and Teng Tools.

Wed, 8 Aug 2018 - Sheehan gears up for epic double header

Queenstown’s Mike Sheehan is gearing up for a busy week of rallying, starting this weekend with the Catlins Coast Rally and finishing at the other end of the country in Whitianga for the Hyundai New Zealand Goldrush Rally Coromandel.

Chasing the MRF Mainland Rally Series Class B as well as the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship NZ Two-wheel drive class means the busy schedule for Sheehan.

The Catlins Coast Rally was Sheehan’s debut event in 2016 and since then he has enjoyed a rapid progression through the sport, wrapping up Class B in the Mainland Series last year and stepping up to the national championship in 2018 as well as defending his championship.

After successfully pairing together for the first time at the recent Rally Nelson, Sheehan will team up again with Janey Blair for the Balclutha-based event, which represents a home rally for both.

“It’s going to be a huge week or so of rallying coming up and we’ll be covering plenty of miles, but it will be an epic adventure and I can’t wait for it to get underway,” says Sheehan. “Going back to Catlins, the first rally I will have done three times, gives me a lot of confidence and having Janey in the passenger seat will be great, we have a lot of fun in the car.”

The Catlins Coast Rally takes place on August 11, with the event kicking off in Owaka from 10am. Teams will cover more than 146 kilometres of special stages before returning to Owaka from 3:45pm

Tue, 7 Aug 2018 - New Zealand champion a coup for Catlins
Current New Zealand Rally Champion, Andrew Hawkeswood of Auckland, will line up in this year’s Catlins Coast Rally on Saturday 11 August in what is another coup for the event. 
Hawkeswood will be at the wheel of the Mazda AP4 that he built and took to the national title last year. That was his first national championship title despite the fact he has had a hugely successful career over many years although in fairness he has only done the full championship six times in his lengthy career.
He does have fond memories of both rallying and competing in endurance racing in the south however – in fact his first national championship rally win came at the 2004 Rally Of Southland. Hawkeswood has competed twice before at Catlins. On one of those outings he crashed early but on the other occasion in 2009, driving an Audi Quattro replica, he came within a whisker of winning, leading until near the end when Dean Bond’s local knowledge allowed him to charge into the lead to take the win over Hawkeswood by a mere 2.2 seconds. “I really enjoyed it,” says Hawkeswood. “It is good to come down and support the event. The enthusiasm of guys like (Assistant Clerk Of Course) Roger Laird is infectious. Guys like Roger and those at other South Island events like Carl Rabbidge and Norman Oakley are all so good and have always been there.” Hawkeswood has business interests’ in Central Otago and will eventually move there so he does have an affinity with the south.
He is especially proud of the national title. “It went right down to the wire. With a couple of rounds to go there were still four or five of us who could win it. I enjoy the sport for the competition. I had a three year goal to win the title with the car and I have had a lot of help from a lot of people to be able to achieve it.” Hawkeswood’s business, Force Motorsport, built many of the AP4 cars that have revitalised New Zealand rallying and he says it has been “great to send so many cars out the door and compete against them.” While the title was a highlight he had finished in the top three of the championship on several other occasions over the years.
Hawkeswood’s son Jack will also line up in the field this year in another Mazda 2 AP4 car. “We looked at getting a Ford Fiesta or something similar for him but the cost to build a Mazda like ours compared well. It is a 2-wheel-drive, non-turbo version with a bog standard Mazda CX5 engine that cost us $250 and a really good gearbox and suspension. It is a good strong car – he rolled it ten times in total at Otago last year – three times on Saturday and seven times on the Sunday. The cars are fitted with a g force meter and the car hit the ground with such force it measured 13G's. The safety equipment worked well and both driver and navigator walked away with bruising. The entire car was wrapped around the roll cage.”
Andrew keeps a wary eye on Jack’s progress and went and helped him in the recent Nelson Rally. “I really enjoyed it but I thought rather than sit around in the service park at Catlins I would do the event myself as well,” hence the addition of the reigning National Rally Champion to the field.
The rally will begin adjacent to Owaka Motors in Campbell Street, Owaka, at 10am on Saturday 11 August with competitors facing six high speed Special Stages over a total of 150 kilometres before the event concludes in Owaka at 3.44pm. The rally is Round 6 of the MRF Tyres Mainland Rally Championship and part of the Eastern Southland Car Club Rally Championship.

Tue, 7 Aug 2018 - Catlins Coast Rally a favourite for defending champion
Defending Catlins Coast Rally champion, Andrew Graves of Gore, rates the Catlins Rally as one of his favourites and when you look at his record in the event it is little wonder. 
Last year’s victory was his third, following wins in 2010 and 2013. He has also been runner-up twice, in 2012 and 2016 - when he fell as low as 35th place early on after copping the worst of the snow and ice - while he was third in 2011. It’s a phenomenal record, particularly when you take into consideration that his Mitsubishi EVO 3 is the oldest car at the pointy end of the field and that Graves is not a regular behind the wheel due to the fact he spends much of the year co-driving for others. In fact it was as a co-driver he scored his ‘other’ victory in the Catlins Coast Rally when he was co-driver for 2005 victor Derek Ayson while in 2014 and 2015 he again competed as a co-driver in the event alongside Tony Quinn.
For the last two years he has returned to his co-driving roots in a big way, sitting alongside Christchurch driver Josh Marston in the Holden Rally Team as they campaign in the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship and some rounds of the MRF Tyres Mainland Rally Series. Graves currently leads the co-driver points in both championships.
It’s a very busy schedule and Graves freely admits he could not do it without “the love and support of his family.” Asked about his success – he has also won both the Rankleburn Rally and the Lawrence Rally twice each, he says, “I don’t have a secret, I just make sure my gear and my health is right plus you need a bit of luck.”
Looking ahead to this year’s rally he says, “I would like to give it another nudge although the car is a year older and so am I. I want to go out and give a good performance and do the best we can. I’ll be there with bells on.”
Catlins and the Lawrence Rally are his two favourite events and he looks forward to Catlins every year.
Jared Leebody has been Graves’ co-driver for each of his Catlins wins and will be alongside in the co-driver seat again this year while Graves’ son Hayden has sat beside his father and shared victories with him at both Dusky Forest and Lawrence.
In his limited outings of late Graves has won the Eastern Southland Car Club Rallysprint at Popotunoa and the recent Otago Sports Car Club Whare Flat Rallysprint, finishing ahead of Emma Gilmour with Hayden alongside again.
Graves got the motorsport bug when first co-driving for Ayson and started driving in 1998 with a Mazda RX3 that he describes as “not the fastest car.” He did his first rally, the Mount Linton Rally, in the car plus club events. That was followed by a MKII 1600cc, four-door, Ford Escort, which he says he thrashed before upgrading and beginning his successful career in the EVO 3.
One thing that Andrew Graves never forgets is the people who help and he is always quick to thank his sponsors, family and friends for everything they do for him.
The rally will begin adjacent to Owaka Motors in Campbell Street, Owaka, at 10am on Saturday 11 August with competitors facing six high speed Special Stages over a total of 150 kilometres before the event concludes in Owaka at 3.44pm. The rally is Round 6 of the MRF Tyres Mainland Rally Championship and part of the Eastern Southland Car Club Rally Championship.

Mon, 30 Jul 2018 - Dave Holder finishes Finland JWRC in ninth

New Zealanders Dave Holder and co-driver Jason Farmer have finished their first attempt at Rally Finland in ninth place among 13 finishers in the Junior World Rally Championship category.

It wasn’t quite the result Holder hoped for, but the Mount Manganui-based driver is continuing his 100 per cent finish rate in his debut JWRC season.

Holder and Farmer wrapped up the action with four stages on Sunday morning (EEST) and were able to set the third-fastest stage time on the opening 11.74km special stage, their best stage result on this rally.

“Not the result we really wanted from this event, but we finished on a positive note with a third-fastest stage time in the first stage today, so that’s heading in the right direction,” said Holder. “Two other stages were top six and the last stage, we got a puncture so had to run some mediums. Overall not such a bad day today.”

Holder credits fellow Kiwi Hayden Paddon who spent some time with Holder and Farmer on Saturday evening to help them with their pace notes.

“That made a difference today and I was able to drive, especially that first stage, with confidence that the notes were fine. Moving forward we’ve got to be able to create pace notes on these events that we haven’t seen before – we have to create good notes from scratch

. “So, plenty of things to take away and to learn. We are disappointed not to have finished every stage of the rally but we got 100% experience in Finland and now we prepare for Turkey to try and get a better result there.”
