Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

In ad­di­tion to build­ing a new New Zealand-spe­cific rally car, Hay­den Pad­don is also putting money back into the com­mu­nity that helped get him to the top of the World Rally Cham­pi­onship.

The Pad­don Foun­da­tion has been es­tab­lished with Hay­den Pad­don Rallysport Group (HPRG) fund­ing and will of­fer grants to driv­ers, co-driv­ers and car clubs in New Zealand.

“I re­mem­ber when I started out I ap­plied to lots of dif­fer­ent places for some fund­ing, but ral­ly­ing was al­ways frowned upon,” Pad­don told Mo­tor­sport News.

“The idea be­hind the Pad­don Foun­da­tion is that we help put some­thing back into the sport. I want to do any­thing I can to help oth­ers.”
