Mon, 20 May 2019 - First Targa win for McKenzie and Sayers, while Bell and Forbes make their mark on the final day

Haydn McKenzie and co-driver Matthew Sayers (Mitsubishi Evo 10 4WD) have won this year’s Targa Hawke’s Bay tarmac motor rally after managing a lead they held from midway through the first of three day’s competition on Friday.

Arriving at event’s end in Havelock North this afternoon with almost a minute up their sleeve, the Albany, Auckland pair led home teammates David Rogers and Aidan Kelly (Mitsubishi Evo 10) who were second, and finished just over two-and-a-half minutes up on the third placed BMW 318ti (and first 2WD car home) of last ...    more...

Sun, 19 May 2019 - McKenzie and Sayers retain Targa lead - but there's still just seconds in it!

Haydn McKenzie and co-driver Matthew Sayers (Mitsubishi Evo 10 4WD) have retained their Day 1 lead at the end of the second day of competition in this year’s Targa Hawke’s Bay tarmac motor rally.

However, after the longest day of three, which took the 70+ field of Targa competition and Targa Tour cars over 400km from Rotorua in the Bay of Plenty this morning, to Havelock North in Hawke’s Bay late this afternoon, there are still just seconds – 17 to be exact – between AndrewSimms.co.nz class teammates McKenzie & Sayers (Production 4WD ...    more...

After the first of three days’ competition over seven stages comprising 121km of closed roads through the south-eastern Waikato today they have a 21 second lead over fellow Mitsubishi Evo 10 4WD driver David Rogers and his co-driver Aidan Kelly, and a 1.18.1 buffer on last year’s event winner Steven and co-driving brother Carl in the first of the 47-strong field’s 2WD cars, Steven’s BMW 318ti.more...

Thu, 16 May 2019 - Will extra day make a difference to final result of Targa Hawkes Bay

As competitors in this year’s three-day Targa Hawke’s Bay tarmac motor rally gather at documentation and scrutineering in Rotorua today the question many are still asking is ‘what sort of difference will the extra day make this year?’

For those who are either new to marathon-style motor race events, or have yet to tackle anything longer than a two-day Targa Rotorua or the first two-day Targa Hawke’s Bay event, the answer is either ‘a lot’ or ‘a little.’

For veterans of event organiser, ...    more...

Thu, 16 May 2019 - Paddon launches ‘Driven’ documentary series

Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon has launched a behind-the-scenes documentary series about his New Zealand-based rally team Paddon Rallysport.

The four-part documentary series – with part one launched on 15 May – uses the same name, Driven, as Paddon’s autobiography being published by Penguin Random House later this year. The two projects complement each other but Driven: The Paddon Rallysport Story has a different storyline to Driven: The Hayden Paddon Story. While the autobiography promises a candid look at Paddon’s professional and personal life, the documentary series will cover twelve months of action with ...    more...

Sat, 11 May 2019 - Thomson makes step up at Whangarei

Christchurch’s Dylan Thomson has made a big step up in speed at the second round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, the ENEOS International Rally of Whangarei.

In what represented his second event in the Specialised Auto Services Subaru Impreza WRX STI, Thomson was confident of improved pace heading to the event after multiple enhancements in the vehicles set up.

Having made a strong start on the Friday night super special stages, where he sat just outside the top ten in front of the large crowds, Thomson was forced ...    more...
