Mon, 17 Dec 2018 - Big plans for 25th anniversary Targa event and year  

It’s been a big year for New Zealand marathon motorsport event organiser the Ultimate Rally Group (URG). But you won’t find company CEO and Targa/Silver Fern Rally Event Director Peter Martin taking a break any time soon.

Martin has just announced the dates and basic details for his two big 2019 Targa events and is also well-advanced on plans for the next (biennial) NZ Silver Fern Rally in 2020.

“It’s just the name of the game,” Martin said on Monday. “We’re getting more and more interest in our events from overseas and – particularly for a pre-eminent marathon one like the Silver Fern these guys plan their programmes two and sometimes even three years out. “It’s important, too, with our two Targa products, that people here know in advance when they are and where they start and finish. Hence our decision to lock in our dates as early as we could for 2019.

Martin plans to celebrate 2019 – and the 25th annual Targa New Zealand event – in style, with a number of initiatives aimed at seeing the entry top the 200 mark.

The year starts with a three-day Rotorua-Havelock North – provisionally named ‘Targa Rotorua/Hawke’s Bay’ event – in May. Documentation will be held in Rotorua on Thursday May 16 followed by three full days of competition covering over 480kms of closed special stages and 700km of touring from Friday May 17 to Sunday May 19.

This, in effect, will be the taster for the full five-day 25th anniversary Targa New Zealand event from Taupo to Palmerston North (“basically, says Martin, “It’s a ’best of’ event through the heart of the North Island”) between Tuesday October 29 and Saturday November 02 2019.

As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations there will be a special Legends Dinner in Taupo on the eve of the event (Labour Day Monday October 28) as well as a gala prize-giving function in Palmerston North on Saturday November 02 timed so that everyone can watch the World Cup rugby final live from Yokohama, Japan, due to start at 10.00pm that night.

Having successfully run a new Time Trial event-within-the-event in association with the Vintage Car Club of NZ as part of the 2018 Targa New Zealand event in the South Island, Martin is now opening up that option to all comers in both 2019 events.

“Everyone involved loved the Time Trial we ran this year so we have decided to open up the concept for both our events this year. We will still, obviously, be working with the Vintage Car Club of NZ so that those with older cars can join in the fun, but we are also welcoming anyone who likes the specific challenge of driving to an average speed, rather than flat-out,”

Though they get to run over the same closed roads as the competition and Targa Tour cars, the nature of a Time Trial means speeds will be much lower, so those entering can do so in any car, new, old or in-between, as long as it is registered and has a current Warrant of Fitness.

That means a lot less compliance cost, opening the event up to more people, something which Martin says is key to its long-term viability.

“We hear it all the time when we talk to people about our events. So many tell us that they would love to do Targa…if they had a suitable car, or if they could get time off work, or if they could somehow see what one was like before committing themselves to buying or building a car!

“This way they can! As long as they have a car with a Reg and WoF all they need now is the entry fee, a co-driver and – in the case or our new Rotorua/Hawke’s Bay event - a couple of days’ annual leave. If that isn’t an incentive to finally turn their dream of doing the event into reality I don’t know what is?”

Targa New Zealand events are organised by the Ultimate Rally Group with the support of sponsors, Chicane Racewear, Global Security, HW Richardson Group, Invercargill Licensing Trust, NZ Classic Car magazine, Race Brakes, Race4Life Trust, Racetech, TeamTalk, TrackIt, and Writeraze.

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 - Hyundai Motorsport fine-tunes its WRC line-up for 2019
Hyundai Motorsport has announced that Spaniard Dani Sordo and Frenchman Sébastien Loeb will compete for the team in the 2019 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC)
Nine-time WRC champion Loeb has signed a two-year contract that will see him contest six rounds of the 2019 season in a Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC alongside co-driver Daniel Elena
Sordo will remain a Hyundai Motorsport driver for the sixth consecutive season, joining co-driver Carlos del Barrio for eight events.

Alzenau, Germany

December 13, 2018 – Hyundai Motorsport has confirmed that Dani Sordo and Sébastien Loeb will join its 2019 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) campaign, representing a strong signal of intent from the Alzenau-based team.

As part of a two-year contract, nine-time champion Loeb will compete in six rounds of the 2019 season in a Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC alongside long-time co-driver Daniel Elena, starting with Rallye Monte-Carlo in January.

The Frenchman registered his 79th WRC victory in spectacular fashion at Rally de España in October, his first since 2013. He will get his first taste of the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC prior to Rallye Monte-Carlo, the opening round of the 2019 WRC season.

For Sordo, a one-year contract extension to run eight events into 2019 will mark his sixth consecutive season with Hyundai Motorsport. The Spaniard, alongside co-driver Carlos del Barrio, scored five top-five results in seven starts in 2018, including two podium finishes. Their precise programme for next season is still to be defined but will commence at Rally México in March.

Loeb and Sordo, who were previously WRC team-mates for four seasons from 2007-2010, will join Thierry Neuville and Andreas Mikkelsen on the team’s driver roster for 2019. Hyundai Motorsport also has an open dialogue with Hayden Paddon to discuss options for his involvement with the team into next year.

Sébastien Loeb said: “I am delighted to announce that Daniel and I will compete in six WRC events for Hyundai Motorsport in 2019, beginning with Rallye Monte-Carlo. Winning at Rally de España this season re-ignited my desire to continue competing at the very front of WRC. Joining Hyundai will give us a fresh challenge and one that I can’t wait to tackle. I have been impressed with the team’s approach and their determination to succeed. They were firmly in the title fight this season and I feel that I can bring a lot to them, together with Thierry, Andreas and Dani. The Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC is a proven rally winner, and as a crew we know can still be up there with the best, so 2019 promises to be an exciting season!”

Dani Sordo said: “Hyundai Motorsport has really become a special team to me, so I am pleased to remain part of the WRC line-up. We have built some good memories over the years, and, alongside Carlos, I felt that 2018 was one of my most competitive seasons. We know that when things work in our favour we can really be strong contenders. It is important for us to learn from the difficult moments and come back stronger – that’s the aim for 2019. We have an exciting crew line-up with Sébastien coming on board. He brings an immeasurable amount of experience which will be a huge benefit to the entire team as we move forward.”

Team Principal Michel Nandan said: “Sébastien’s announcement is hugely important for Hyundai Motorsport, and we’re overjoyed that he has agreed a two-year contract. Sealing a deal with someone of his immense talent and calibre shows that we are an attractive and competitive proposition in the FIA World Rally Championship. Ultimately, our goal is to win the WRC title. We believe we have the package to achieve that, and our composition of crews for 2019 will perfectly reflect that ambition. We are also happy to retain the services of Dani for another year, extending a positive working relationship that dates back to 2014. With Thierry and Andreas already on the books for next season, we have an exciting mix of personalities and a complementary line-up. We are also still in talks with Hayden to see how we can work together into 2019. He is a great talent and a tremendous ambassador for Hyundai NZ, leading various motorsport projects.”
Sat, 8 Dec 2018 - Fans get their wish, as Østberg to return

Rally fans have got their wish, with World Rally Championship star, Mads Østberg, confirmed as the international guest at next year’s Otago Classic Rally.

For the second year running, Østberg will drive a Rossendale Rally Team Ford Escort RS1800 as he attempts to win the coveted event for the first time.

The Norwegian has just completed a hugely successful season for the factory Citroen Racing squad in the WRC.

Despite only a limited program, 31-year old Østberg outperformed his team-mates to finish as the team’s leading point-scorer for the season.

His year culminated with a brilliant third place at the season-ending Rally Australia in November.

“I really enjoyed my experience last year, competing on the fantastic New Zealand roads,” Østberg said.

“I have unfinished business, and I’m looking forward to again meeting the friends I made in 2018.”

Østberg retired from this year’s Otago Rally with driveline failure in the Escort.

“We’re delighted to welcome Mads back again,” Otago Rally spokesman, Roger Oakley, said.

“He is a wonderful ambassador of the sport and someone who clearly just loves competing, and meeting the fans and the other competitors.”

His entry comes after recent news that Irishman Frank Kelly will return in his famous ‘Baby Blue’ Escort, while popular rally commentator, Colin Clark, will also attend the event for the first time.

New Zealand’s own WRC star, Hayden Paddon, is also expected to contest the event once again.

The 2019 Dunedin Isuzu Otago Rally will run over the weekend of April 13 and 14, with two-days of fast-paced rally action following a publicity start in Dunedin's Octagon on Friday evening, April 12.

It is also round one of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship.

The 2019 Otago Rally receives Major Events funding from Dunedin City Council, and is supported by the Otago Community Trust.

Sun, 2 Dec 2018 - Emphatic Silver Fern Rally win completes 'unfinished business' for Robinson and Collis

Winning this year’s NZ Silver Fern Rally – and doing so in such emphatic style – was like completing unfinished business for top British Historic rally driver Matthew Robinson and co-driver Sam Collis.

The pair crossed the official finish line of the eight-day 3,571km marathon from Hamilton to Rotorua this afternoon (Sat Dec 01) just over four minutes ahead of fellow Ford Escort Mk2 pair Roger Chilman and Max Freeman with a third British par, Roger Tysoe and co-driver Paul Morris, locking out the podium for Ford in third place,

Robinson and Collis started the last Silver Fern Rally (held in the South Island in 2016) in a freshly-built Fiat 131R replica. When it was going they had the pace of eventual Historic category winner Meirion Evans and co-driver Lestyn Williams in a Mk2 Ford Escort. But the unsorted car lacked the reliability of all the Escorts in the event. So this time around Robinson decided that if he couldn’t beat the Ford hordes he would join them.

:It’s such a long way to come for an event and for something to go wrong,” he said.” So after the last one I decided that if I was to come back and do another it would be in car that was going to get me to the end.”

He was not alone this year, either, as nine of the first 10 cars home were Escorts, the exception the Porsche 911 of local son/father combination Brad and Stuart McFarlane in sixth place,

First Kiwi crew home, meanwhile, was Brent Rawstron and Ian McKee in the first locally-built and prepared Mk 2 Ford Escort in fourth place, while Mike Goldsbury and Dan Wallis (Toyota Corolla DX) managed to successfully hold on to the lead of their class, winning the Challenge section by just over a minute from Dave Strong and Rob Scott in Strong’s late model Honda Civic Type R.

Brent Taylor and Dave Neill (Toyota GT86) were again the quickest through all but one of the stages on the final day. However they could only close but not completely bridge the time gap to Goldsbury and Wallis in first and Strong And Scott in second thanks to engine issues costing then time early in the event and two off-road excursions doing the same later on.

Sat, 1 Dec 2018 - Tysoe hangs on to final podium spot on the way to Rotorua finish line

A late event charge on Thursday saw UK historic marathon rally specialist Roger Tysoe and co-driver Paul Morris wrest the final podium spot in this year’s NZ Silver Fern Rally off Kiwi pair Brent Rawstron and Ian McKee on.

But any hope Tysoe had of further closing the gap on event leader Matthew Robinson and co-driver Sam Collis, and multiple Thursday stage winner Roger Chilman and his co-driver Max Freeman who are currently running first and second were – if not dashed, at least put on hold until tomorrow – through the final stage today, the 29.98 km Mangapoike Rd high in the misty Ureweras, south-west of Gisborne.

Before the lunchtime service in Wairoa, Tysoe and Morris were comfortably third quickest through the stages. By the first stage after the lunch stop, the marathon 44.64km one through Ruapapa Road, they slipped to fifth, losing just over half a minute to stage winner Matthew Robinson. Then through the final 29.98km s of Mangapoike Rd, they slipped back to ninth place, losing just over a minute to a fired up Chilman, who won the stage from young Kiwi gun Brad McFarlane and Dad Stuart McFarlane in their repaired Porsche 911, and German-born Kiwi Peter Scharmach and his co-driver David Jasko (Ford Escort Mk 2).

Even Matthew Robinson lost time to Chilman through the stage (21 seconds) but the upshot of it was that it was Scharmach – out of the overall running but back in the event anyway – who finished third behind day winner Chilman and day runner-up (by just 6.3 seconds) Robinson , with Tysoe back in fourth for the day and slipping further back behind the leading pair, rather than closing the gap.

Chilman again won the day, but Robinson conceded less than 10 seconds over 139km of Special Stages and heads into tomorrow’s final 178km Special Stage/295km Touring in-between with a buffer of over eight-and-a-half minutes over Chilman and almost 13 minutes over Tysoe and Morris.

Brent Taylor and his co-driver Dave Neill (Toyota GT86) continued, meanwhile, to set the pace in the Challenge class, winning four of the five stages today.

Because of issues earlier in the event however, they are running third overall, and despite taking a good two minutes out of long-time event leader Mike Goldsbury and his co-driver Dan Wallis and second-placed Dave Strong and Rob Scott, he and Neill are still over a quarter-of-an-hour in arrears with just six stages to go tomorrow.

From parc ferme in Gisborne overnight tonight, tomorrow sees a final run to the finish line in Rotorua via six stages including a 45 km marathon final through the famous Motu Road.

Thu, 29 Nov 2018 - Chilman wins the day but can't wrest rally lead from Robinson

A hard-charging Roger Chilman and co-driver Max Freeman (Ford Escort Mk 2) dominated the sixth day of 2018 NZ Silver Fern Rally action in the northern Wairarapa and southern Hawke’s Bay today.

Yet, after topping the time sheets in five of the six stages, the pair managed to take less than two minutes out of the handsome 10 minute-plus lead compatriots – and fellow Ford Escort pair – Matthew Robinson and his co-driver Sam Collis enjoyed at the start of the day.

Harrogate, Yorkshire, pair Robinson and Collis, won the day’s first stage – the 13.9km Mangaoranga Rd one west of Eketahuna, by just 1.9 seconds but then conceded the other five to Chilman and Freeman.

Conceded is perhaps too strong a word for the result, however, ‘shadowed’ being a better one.

On the next stage, the 15.9km Daggs Rd, the Robinson/Collis Escort took just 5.8 seconds longer to get to the finish line. The margin was even closer -an incredible 0.1 second – in the short (6.3km) sprint through SS34 along Te Para Rd and after ‘ballooning out’ to 19 seconds through the 21km Alfredto-Tinui stage before lunch went back to single figures – just 6.5 seconds after 36kms of prime Hawke’s Bay gravel through Waihoki Valley.

Even through the longest stage of the day, the 41.6km finale south of Pongaroa on the ‘Bay’s remote south-east coast Chilman and Freeman could not shake Robinson and Collis, though this time the margin was close to a minute (58.8 seconds).

The result was that after 135kms of Special Stage gravel and 400km of transport stages in between the two Escorts were split by just 1 minute and 23 seconds, with Robinson and Collis still holding a tidy margin – 8 minutes and 52 seconds – over Chilman and Freeman, and an 18 minute buffer over fellow Brits Simon Tysoe and Paul Morris in (yet) another Mk 2 Ford Escort.

A conservative start strategy continues to pay dividends for Silver Fern event veterans Brent Rawstron and Ian McKee, who inherited third place and leading Kiwi status after the final (Manukara Rd) stage when swash-buckling son and father pair Brad and Stuart McFarlane finally ran out of luck in what up until that point of the event had been a 100 % reliable and undamaged Porsche 911.

Heading into the stage they were already experiencing gearbox issues and in the stage they not only lost all drive, oil from the gearbox started a fire in the car’s engine bay.

The Manukara Road stage also took a toll on the previous paces-setters in the Challenge category for modern or upgraded older ones. Early event category leader Charlie Evans and Andrew Hooker were back to their stage-winning best in Evans’ Mazda RX7, (after taking time out of the event to properly sort a diff issue), topping the category time sheets in four of today’s six stages only to roll and fail to finish the final one.

Brent Taylor and his co-driver Dave Neill (Toyota GT86) won the other stage in their quest to chase down long-time leader Mike Goldsbury and co-driver Dan Wallis in Goldsbury’s 1980s era Toyota Corolla. But they too ended up off the road in in the final stage, their maximum time penalty sending them back down the category running order for a second time in this year’s event.

That left Goldsbury with a lead of over seven minutes, this time though over Honda Civic Type R pair Dave Strong and Rob Scott who were quickest through the final stage.

After overnighting in Havelock North tonight the Silver Fern field heads to Gisborne tomorrow (Friday Nov 30) for a penultimate day of five stages. After a final overnight parc ferme in Gisborne on Friday night Saturday sees a final run to the finish line in Rotorua via six stages including a 45 km marathon final through the famous Motu Road.

Wed, 28 Nov 2018 - Silver Fern Rally's shortest day packs heavy punch

Day five of this year’s NZ Silver Fern Rally might have been the shortest in terms of special stages – three – and stage kilometres – just 84 – but it packed a serous punch.

For a start, overnight leader Roger Chilman and co-driver Max Freeman (Ford Escort RS1800) from Great Britain broke an axle in the first stage – the 38.81km Beaconsfield Valley Road - and had to be towed out, handing their hard-won and very short-term lead back to compatriots Matthew Robinson and Sam Colllis in their Ford Escort RS 1800.

That was by no means the only bad news for the front-running group to come out of the stage either.

2016 Silver Fern Rally winner, and the top seed for the 2018 event, Meirion Evans and co-driver Lestyn Williams from Wales, hit a culvert in their Ford Escort, the sister car to Chilman’s, putting the pair out for the remaining stages and placing a question mark against their ability to be back in the event tomorrow.

With teammates Chilman and Evans both out of contention early, it was left to one of the other visiting UK Ford Escort Mk2 drivers, Simon Tysoe and co-driver Paul Morris to step up and take the stage win.

With a new axle in his Escort though, Roger Chilman was not only back in the running after the first stage, he went on to win the other two from Tysoe and Morris, and Matthew Robinson and Sam Collis.

Rather than starting to drive conservatively to protect what at parc ferme back in Palmerston North this evening was a lead of over 10 minutes, however, Robinson said he was simply struggling as the first car on the road with the thickest gravel he reckoned he had ever seen in a rally, here or back home in the UK.

First Kiwis in the event pecking order after another quick clean day today were son Brad and father Stuart McFarlane in third place in their Porsche 911. Tysoe and Morris are looming closer and closer however, the margin the Kiwi pair enjoyed at the end of the day this evening just six seconds.

Fellow Kiwis Brent Rawstron and Ian McKee also remain a distinct threat to the McFarlane’s prospects of a podium, as the Rawstron/McKee Mk 2 Escort ended the day in fifth place but only another 14.5 seconds back from Tysoe and Morris.

Sadly the eight day event has seen the last of two other Kiwi Ford Escort Mk2 pairings, Christchurch classic rally specialist Jeff Judd and Belgian co-driver Stephane Prevot suffering a serious engine problem on Tuesday and officially pulling out of the event today.

Locals Brian Green and co-driver Fleur Pedersen were also forced to call it quits today with a blown motor in Green’s car.

Despite an early scare today when he clipped Meirion Evans’ prone Ford Escort in the fateful first stage the story of the Challenge category today was about how Brent Taylor and co-driver Dave Neill in Taylor’s contemporary Toyota GT86 were chipping away at the lead event rookies Mike Goldsbury and Dan Wallis have built up in their circa 1982 Toyota Corolla DX!

At the end of the fourth day the lead was just over four minutes, at the end of today it was just over three……

Tomorrow (Thursday Nov 30) sees the NZ Silver Fern Rally field back into a full day of stages (135 kms over six) between Ekatahuna in the west and parc ferme in Havelock North in the east.

Wed, 28 Nov 2018 - Chilman keeps his cool to take Silver Fern Rally lead

Roger Chilman and co-driver Max Freeman (Ford Escort RS1800) from Great Britain are the new leaders of this year’s NZ Silver Fern Rally after another drama-filled day in the central North Island today.

Day 1 pace-setters Meirion Evans and co-driver Lestyn Williams from Wales started out the day in front again after early event leader Matthew Robinson and his co-driver Sam Collis ran off the road in their Ford Escort late yesterday afternoon.

However, after winning the first two stages and finishing a close second to Robinson and Collis in the third this morning, Evans ran wide through a corner in the fourth stage and got stuck in a ditch.

While his car sustained only minor damage the effect the time penalty had on Evans’s hard-won-back event lead was immediate; Chilman – who bought the car Evans used to win the last Silver Fern Rally here in 2016 – taking over the lead of the Leg (4) and with it the overall event lead – which at day’s end in Palmerston North was just over 2 minutes from Robinson and Collis.

Despite having to take an assessed maximum stage time (of 50 minutes cfm to Chilman's winning one of 29-and-a-half) Evans and Williams remain third overall in the event standings, albeit over 13 minutes behind Chilman and Freeman.

In a day of see-sawing fortunes throughout the field another front-runner to fall was Christchurch rally stalwart Jeff Judd who suffered a mechanical issue in the event’s longest stage, the 50.63km SS24 Papaiti/Rangotatau East one north-east of Whanganui.

Judd and Belgian navigator Stephane Prevot were running in second place, just a minute and-a-half behind Evans and Williams at the end of the third day. But after a close third in today’s opening stage, the 18.43km Oruakukuru south of Ohakune this morning their day was effectively done when their Ford Escort ground to a halt in the second stage.

Third in the Leg, but way back in the overall event standing thanks to not one but two serious engine bay fires, was German-born Kiwi all-rounder Peter Scharmach and co-driver David Jasko. Fourth was one of the other visiting British duos, Simon Tysoe and co-driver Paul Morris, in their Ford Escort, fifth and again the first non-Ford Escort pairing on the leader board, Kiwis Brad and Stuart McFarlane in their Porsche 911.

In fourth place in the overall event standings the McFarlanes are now the top all-Kiwi crew, though the ever consistent Ford Escort pair of Brent Rawstron and co-driver Ian McKee are less than half a minute back in fifth. By day’s end British pair Tysoe and Morris had also closed to with 40s seconds of the Rawstron Escort and were sixth overall but looking for further improvement tomorrow.

There was also a major change at the top of the Challenge class (for contemporary and/or modified historic cars) leader board today.

After issues on the opening day but two gloriously virtually trouble-free days leading from the front on Sunday and Monday, Charlie Evans’ Mazda RX7 blew not one but two diffs today. That effectively gifted the lead in the Challenge class to marathon rally rookies Mike Goldsbury and co-driver Dan Wallace on Goldsbury's Toyota Corolla DX.

With their contemporary Toyota GT86 now running back on song after a throttle bracket broke early in the event Brent Taylor and Dave Neill are back up to second place, with the late model front-wheel-drive Honda Civic R of Dave Strong and Rob Scott third, and Evans and co-driver Andrew Hooker back in fourth – and looking at an all-nighter back at their Hamilton workshop to have the RX7 back in action in time for the final four days of an already memorable 2018 Silver Fern Rally event.

Tomorrow (Wednesday Nov 28) sees the NZ Silver Fern Rally field spend the morning completing a major mid-event service in Palmerston North before three stages north-east of the city in the afternoon then return for a second overnight stop in the city ahead of a full day again on Thursday and overnight stop that night in Havelock North.
