Pad­don takes out fi­nal rally round

Herald on Sunday - - IN OTHER NEWS -

Hayden Pad­don has won the fi­nal round of the New Zealand Rally Cham­pi­onship in Raglan, giv­ing Hyundai New Zealand their first NZRC man­u­fac­tur­ers’ cham­pi­onship ti­tle. Pad­don made the win look easy with a mar­gin of nearly five-and-a-half min­utes over sec­ond­placed Ben Hunt, hav­ing set the fastest times on all eight spe­cial stages of the one-day Hyundai NZ Raglan Rally of the Coast. How­ever, Pad­don, with Mal­colm Read along­side as co-driver in a late change from the usual John Ken­nard, had to man­age a few driv­e­line nig­gles to bring the car home safely in first place.
