Thu, 14 Dec 2017 - New Zealand retains strong representation at the FIA 

President of MotorSport New Zealand (MSNZ) Wayne Christie, of Christchurch, has been elected president of the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Rally Commission, following the 2017 annual general assembly of the world governing body of motorsport last week.

Christie follows two highly-regarded New Zealanders, Morrie Chandler, ONZM and the late Ron Frost, MBE, in maintaining a Kiwi presence at the highest levels of world motorsport. Chandler and Frost, both from Auckland, were also former presidents of MSNZ – Chandler from 1977 to 1998 and Frost from 1958 to 1977.

Chandler has held several roles with the FIA, most recently as one of seven vice presidents on the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) for the last eleven years. Earlier he was one of 25 members of the WMSC – the sport’s top governing body. Chandler was also previously a member of the FIA's Rallies Commission, then president of the World Rally Championship organisers before being elected president of the World Rally Championship Commission in 2006.

Chandler stepped down from the FIA Vice Presidential role this month, in accordance with the FIA statutes applying an age limit of 75 years at time of election to all FIA bodies. In recognition of his valued contributions over many years, Chandler was honoured with the title of Vice President d’Honneur de FIA during the 2017 general assembly meeting which concluded the FIA’s annual meetings in Paris.

“For a small country, New Zealand punches well above its weight in world motorsport as competitors and in the sport’s administration and regulation,” says Christie who was voted in as MSNZ president in 2016.

“Chandler and Frost, before me, forged significant pathways which assisted us to continue New Zealand’s representation at the highest levels of the FIA.

“Apart from the obvious successes of many Kiwi competitors internationally this year, New Zealand also ranks inside the top ten countries for numbers of motorsport competitors and events held, and this is purely on numbers, not per capita,” Christie says, quoting the FIA 2017 Sport Clubs Data Survey.

Stepping into his new global role as the president of the FIA Rally Commission alongside his MSNZ role and his full-time position with a Christchurch legal firm, Christie says he is better known as a circuit racing competitor.

“I have had some previous rallying co-driving experience, and have stewarded rallies up to New Zealand Championship level. I also bring eight years of experience heading up MSNZ advisory commissions, and it is this experience I believe I can bring to the FIA Rally Commission. There is already so much rally experience within the commission, my role is to help manage and coordinate the knowledge for the betterment of the sport. I’m also fortunate to have many, very experienced ‘rally brains’ in New Zealand who I can draw upon.”

Christie believes he has the skills to make a difference at FIA level. “The MSNZ board agreed that it was desirable for New Zealand to continue its long-standing presence at that level of the FIA. There are several reasons behind this: a lot of work has gone before us that should not be let go lightly; motorsport in New Zealand has benefitted from that level of involvement and can continue to do so; and New Zealand is well respected within the FIA family and can continue to contribute in a positive manner.”

The FIA Rally Commission is responsible for overseeing the welfare of rallying below World Rally Championship level, with a particular focus on the global regional rally championships, such as the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship.

Christie acknowledges there are stiff challenges facing several of the regional rally championships.

“I’m looking forward to working with the 25 commission members to address the issues and concerns to make rallying in the regions around the world stronger, with key issues such as costs among the biggest hurdles.”

Christie’s position heading the FIA Rally Commission also means that he has a seat on the WRC Commission as well as the Safety Commission.

Two other New Zealanders are also represented at the highest levels of the FIA include New Zealand Automobile Association (NZAA) CEO Brian Gibbons who takes over the presidency of the FIA Senate, which oversees the FIA’s management and finances. Mike Noon, the NZAA’s general manager of motoring affairs, was elected president of Region II (Asia Pacific) for the FIA Mobility Programmes Committee. NZAA members Simon Douglas and Dougal Swift were also elected as vice-chairmen of the FIA Mobility Policy Commission and the FIA Mobility Services Commission respectively.

The FIA is comprised of 245 motoring and motor sport club members in 143 countries and has 80 million members. The FIA divides the world into seven zones with New Zealand in the Asia-Pacific region.

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 - Holder goes international with JWRC campaign in 2018

Rally driver David Holder aims to become the first New Zealander to contest the FIA Junior World Rally Championship, as the 2016 New Zealand rally champion prepares to take his rallying career international in 2018.

Tauranga-based Holder, age 28 and originally from Invercargill, will have regular co-driver Jason Farmer, from Hamilton, alongside him if he’s selected as a competitor in the five-round JWRC which is run by M-Sport Poland.

“Right from the outset, I’ve made no secret about rallying being more than a hobby for me. We had thought about entering the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship, but this year’s fact-finding trip to the Spanish World Rally Championship event and other parts of Europe confirmed that this is where I need to be to continue learning and developing as a driver,” says Holder who counts Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon among his mentors, with Paddon helping with connections and information while Holder was in Europe.

For Farmer the opportunity is an exciting unknown. “Competing in the JWRC is definitely going to be a challenge for Dave and myself,” says the 37-year-old who has co-driven for Holder since 2015. “We will be on the other side of the world in completely unfamiliar surroundings and on road surfaces we have never competed on before. But this just adds to the adventure. Dave and I have a strong relationship both in and out of the car and I am looking forward to taking on next season’s challenges alongside such a motivated and hard-working guy. We’re both grateful for the support of our families who have also embraced the adventure ahead of us next year.”

The JWRC follows the ‘arrive and drive’ formula established by the WRC Academy in 2011 with competitors driving the Ford Fiesta R2 EcoBoost rally cars built and maintained by M-Sport Poland under the guidance of team director Maciej Woda.

Holder has already registered for the championship, but must await the first selection of confirmed competitors being made on 15 December to be 100 per cent sure of his entry. Meanwhile, he’s hard at work trying to raise the necessary €185,000 budget.

Getting behind the wheel of a two-wheel-drive car again after two seasons in four-wheel-drive doesn’t faze Holder. “Strangely I’m really looking forward to being back in a 2WD, although I’ll find out quickly if any bad habits have developed after driving 4WDs. The low power combined with two less driving wheels means you really have to maximise corner speed all the time to be fast, so without a doubt the experience will make me a better driver in the long term.”

The five-round championship takes in some of the WRC’s key European events – Sweden in February, Corsica (France) in April, Portugal in May, Finland in July and the unknown roads of Turkey in September. Competitors count points from the best four of the five rounds. “We’re planning to do all five rounds. We need to get as much experience as we can on every possible WRC event, plus there’s always the chance of mechanical failure, so dropping a round only puts more pressure on the other events for a good result.”

Holder has his eye firmly on the very significant prize package on offer for the 2018 JWRC champion, which includes a brand-new Ford Fiesta R5 rally car, 200 tyres towards the 2019 WRC2 series, free fuel for seven rounds of 2019 WRC2, free WRC2 registration and free entry to some rallies.

“There’s no doubt the prize package on offer is fantastic, I mean who doesn’t want to win an R5 car?,” Holder says. “However, we need to be realistic about our first year over there. We’ll be up against young guys who not only already have a lot of experience on the events but are the brightest talents from around the world. Jason and I plan to take the first two rallies – Sweden and Corsica with their respective and unfamiliar snow and tarmac surfaces – steady and ensure we finish every kilometre to get the most from the experience. After that we'll have some knowledge of the car/team, so will target podium finishes for the second half of the season.”

This week Holder took a swift trip to the team’s base in Krakow, Poland to participate in an official ‘meet and greet’ with other prospective JWRC competitors. He also had the chance to meet some of the key M-Sport personnel and to get to grips with the one-litre Ecoboost Ford Fiesta R2, with tuition from former FIA WRC Academy Champion and 2017 Wales Rally GB winner Elfyn Evans.

Holder says he was made to feel very welcome at M-Sport Poland. “It’s nice to already feel part of the team here at M-sport. It looks like we will have a great team around us next year, which will let me and Jase focus on our job in the car.

“The facilities in Poland in incredible; everything is immaculate with each and every space/feature in the building designed for a specific purpose. The level of professionalism certainly jumps up a few notches when you see what goes on behind doors in a factory team.

“This visit has been a valuable opportunity to meet some of the other perspective drivers, some of who have already competed in the JWRC. Hearing some of their experiences is all valuable knowledge as we prepare for next year’s events.”

Holder’s run in the R2 Fiesta was essentially his first time on tarmac as well as his first time driving a left-hand-drive car. “It was extremely slippery so not really that representational, but great to get a feeling for the car. Elfyn was great with feedback, and really encouraging considering the slow speeds we were achieving. Regardless of the competitiveness, I approached it as a chance to gain some knowledge around the characteristics of the car. I also enjoyed the chance to get to know more of the team, as I’ll be working with them throughout next year more closely.”

With two months until the first event in Sweden, Holder and Farmer have both the funding and travel logistics to work on alongside their fitness regimes, which includes Farmer’s recovery from recent ankle surgery. They’re getting plenty of support, particularly from Paddon.

“Hayden’s been pivotal in a number of my career decisions, and always has wisdom and advice to offer in any rally situation. Now more than ever, his guidance will be key as we prepare for events that are new to us. Ultimately he’s been a big believer in me during the good times and the bad, so I’d love to reward his faith and perseverance with me by making it on the world stage.”

Paddon is delighted to see Holder pursue his dream of an international career. “It’s great to see Dave show it is possible for Kiwis to compete on the world stage. He has showed at the New Zealand level that he has the talent, and the next step from there is the support categories of the WRC. We all know the biggest hurdles are the financial barriers, but Dave is committed and working hard towards his dream. That passion and drive will take him a long way. Next year will be about gaining experience for him on what will be all new events, but I believe he can also deliver good results.”

Holder’s wife Adina may join them in Europe, as he’ll need a logistics and social media person on the ground. “Regardless of whether Adina is that person, there’s no questioning her support for the campaign, for which I’m very grateful. In her words, she’s ‘never felt more sure about a rally decision’.

“I’m also grateful for the support of Vehicle Inspection New Zealand (VINZ) and their CEO Gordon Shaw for the past two seasons. Now we’re working to build a family of supporters keen to help get the next New Zealander to the World Rally Championship,” Holder says.

Fri, 1 Dec 2017 - Exciting route on offer for 2018 Otago Rally

The competitive route for the 2018 Otago Rally is taking shape, with a challenging 280 kilometre course set to challenge crews.

The Dunedin based rally will again be the opening round of the New Zealand Rally Championship, and will include the world famous International Otago Classic Rally, which has been won for the past two years by Estonian Markko Martin.

After a publicity start in central Dunedin on Friday night, April 13, the rally will run on Saturday and Sunday (April 14 and 15) over 17 special stages.

The 2018 rally route will be largely on smooth, public roads, due to an ongoing agreement with the Wenita forestry company that sees the rally only use their roads every second year.

As a result, only 10% of the route will be held in the forest.

On Day 1 the rally will head south and include famous stages such as Whare Flat, Waipori Gorge, McIntosh Road and, of course, Kuri Bush.

Many past stages will also be used in different configurations, with the service park based at the pretty Lake Waihola.

“The longest stage of Day 1 will be a 42km test on fast public roads – finishing in the upper Waipori Forest,” Rally Manager, Norman Oakley, said.

“Then on Sunday the rally will head north to stages around Palmerston and Middlemarch, including a brand new 14km public road stage.

“The rally will finish with a 35km version of the iconic Nenthorn stage.” Following the champagne finish at the historic Dunedin Railway Station, the ever-popular prizegiving ceremony will take place at the Dunedin Town Hall.

Intention to enter forms, key dates and times for the 2018 Otago Rally will be available via the official event website in the coming weeks. The Otago Rally is grateful for Major Events funding from the Dunedin City Council.

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 - Thomson cleans up at Rally New Zealand

Waiuku’s Dylan Thomson has put in a huge performance at the final round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, Rally New Zealand, with a top-ten outright result securing him three national titles.

Thomson and co-driver Amy Hudson headed to the event in an intense battle for the NZRC two-wheel drive (for front-wheel drive cars up to two litre) and Motorsport New Zealand two-wheel drive titles (for NZRC two-wheel drive and Open two-wheel drive cars), plus Thomson was in contention for the junior championship.

With his Total Lubricants Ford Fiesta largely underpowered against the Open class cars, he was focussed on securing the NZRC two-wheel drive title. But the nimble Fiesta performed well and Thomson entered the first service as the leading two-wheel drive car outright and right in contention.

A storming run through the infamous Whaanga Coast saw Thomson lower the two-wheel drive record, ironically set in the same car by Ben Hunt. The record breaking pace was timely, with the stage doubling as the Power Stage with the 22-year old securing a full compliment of bonus points.

Ending the day, Thomson was not only the leading two-wheel drive car, but inside the top 15 overall. With junior points awarded at the end of the opening day, Thomson secured the title and added his name to a list that reads like a who’s-who of New Zealand Rallying that includes six now overall champions.

Day two saw plenty of focus for the young pair, who knew that staying in touch rather than huge risks would bring the ultimate reward. Showing maturity beyond their years, they steadily climbed further up the leader board, to come home eighth overall and first two-wheel drive car. That career best result secured Thomson and Hudson not only the NZRC two-wheel drive championship, but also the Motorsport New Zealand Two-wheel drive title.

“Honestly we couldn’t ask for any more, we literally wrapped up everything we could. We had a pretty dream run and it was great to beat one of Ben’s old record in the same car,” says Thomson. “It was the perfect way to round out a pretty damn good season for us and I really have to thank my team and all our sponsors who have made it happen, because we literally couldn’t have done it without them.”

Dylan Thomson Rallysport’s campaign is supported by Total Lubricants, Riordan and West Transport Pukekohe, Drew + Accounting, Harrier Signs, Absolute Spray Painting, Mark Rose Construction, LJ Hooker, Fowler Homes, Waiuku Beaurepairs, Ford Ultimate Motor Group, Stadium Finance, Jivan Produce, Dunlop, Hunt Diesel, Ferodo Racing Pads and GHL Tempfence.

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 - Tough Final for Cox Motorsport
This weekend saw Cox Motorsport compete in Rally of New Zealand the sixth and final round of the New Zealand Rally Championship. After a season of mechanical issues and disappointment, the Cox Motorsport team were headed into this event with high hopes for another podium finish. 

The event started out as the team had planned with driver Sloan Cox and co-driver Sarah Coatsworth setting the second fastest time in stage one, on the heels of New Zealand’s World Rally Championship driver Hayden Paddon. With the pair showing excellent speed and enjoying the amazing roads of Raglan, the Cox Motorsport team had high hopes for the stages ahead.

Stage two of the rally started out feeling great and the split times were looking good for another brilliant result, however 8kms from the end of the stage the gear selector cable failed and the Taslo Engineering Mitsubishi Evo X got stuck in first gear and the team lost over four minutes. Cox managed to get the car into third gear and nurse it back into the service park in an attempt to fix the issue and continue the day’s stages. Once in the service park the decision was made to withdraw from the event and re-join later in the day to ensure the problem was fixed correctly.

The team rejoined at stage four and Cox was third through the stage however a new brake problem occurred and the decision was made to take the Evo X back to Taslo Engineering in Rotorua. This enabled the service crew to repair and thoroughly check the car so Cox could continue setting competitive times for Sunday’s racing.

With the rally car successfully repaired, Sunday started off with enthusiasm, however a tyre change, further brake issues and a misfire in the first stage disheartened the team. Again Cox had to retire to ensure the car was repaired and able to compete in the afternoons stages.

The remaining stages in the afternoon were used to gain valuable seat time and restore the Cox Motorsport teams faith and passion for rallying. A second, third and fifth quickest stage time followed and boosted the confidence in Cox’s pace.

The team now turn their attention to preparing the Cox Motorsport Hillclimb Beast for the 2018 NZ Rally X Series and Leadfoot Festival 2018. Cox will be challenging for first place at Leadfoot after finishing second earlier this year. To keep up to date with the team's plans during the off season, make sure to follow us on and
Sun, 26 Nov 2017 - Paddon leads after opening day as Bligh claims Gull Rally Challenge

New Zealand’s World Rally Championship star Hayden Paddon leads Rally New Zealand after the opening day that has seen multiple teams suffer major tyre issues. Wellington’s Adam Bligh has taken victory in the one-day Gull Rally Challenge class to see him claim the overall title for the year.

Bligh and co-driver Ric Chalmers set a blinding pace early on to sit second to Paddon outright and lead the challenge before time penalties as his team attempted to fix a misfire saw him drop down the leader board. That would not be enough to stop him charging back, eventually leading home Richard Bateman/Jordyn Smith by 29.2 seconds, with Warwick Redfern/Ron Bartels a further 30.4 seconds back in third.

The results saw Bligh win the Gull Rally Challenge for the year, which is contested across the opening day of each event, with three of the first five rounds plus the final counting towards the final score. Results saw him seven points ahead of Bateman, with Whakatane’s Jono Shapley and Sam Byrne’s consistent run earning them third place for the season.

The four-wheel drive class within the Challenge saw Bateman head home Bligh and Shapley, with David Taylor and Pania Huntley claiming the two-wheel drive title with a second place, with enough points to beat event winners Daniel Alexander/Richard Burnett and Deane Buist/Karl Celeste.

The battle for the title of New Zealand Rally Champion continues tomorrow, with Andrew Hawkeswood and Jeff Cress having extended their lead to 14 points with just six special stages remaining over Matt & Nicole Summerfield.

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 - Hawkeswood chases the ultimate prize at Rally New Zealand

Andrew Hawkeswood heads to the final round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, Rally New Zealand, chasing the ultimate prize in New Zealand rallying, the title of national rally champion.

Hawkeswood and co-driver Jeff Cress currently lead the series by 10 points and with 44 points up for grabs, are in a strong position but will need to be on top of their game for the two-day event.

Regularly setting the pace across the season, the Force Motorsport built Mazda 2 AP4+ car has had a thorough going over since Rally Waitomo in October, where a head gasket issue meant fourth place was the best result able to be salvaged.

This season has seen a renewed focus for Hawkeswood, determined to net an elusive national championship title and with only one round remaining, he knows he is in the best possible position to achieve the goal.

“It’s great that the championship has come down to a three-way fight, but with a lead we’re certainly in the best possible position to take it out. I’ve been happy with my speed all season, just a couple of small issues have let us down,” says Hawkeswood.

The roads used on day one around Raglan have been made famous as part of New Zealand’s World Rally Championship round, an event Hawkeswood has contested on multiple occasions. Day two uses roads last used in 2006, meaning Hawkeswood is the only one of the championship contenders to have contested the stages.

“Certainly we know the stages pretty well, we know they’re tricky so it’ll be a case of giving them some respect, without losing any time. It will be a fine balance, but we’ll be giving it everything we’ve got.”

Rally New Zealand gets underway with a ceremonial start on The Strand in Tauranga on Friday from 5pm, with the action getting underway from Raglan the following morning. Crews will tackle six special stages totalling 146 kilometres of special stages, before returning to Tauranga overnight. The following day, crews will tackle a further six stages and 80 kilometres before the finish at ASB Baypark Stadium from 4pm.

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 - Cox Ready for NZRC Final
Cox Motorsport are excited for Rally New Zealand, round Six and the final round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship, being held this weekend. This event is based out of ASB Baypark Stadium in Tauranga and will see the crews head towards Raglan for Saturday’s stages then back to stages south of Tauranga which will see driver Sloan Cox and co-driver Sarah Coatsworth tackle stages that Cox first learned to race on at 15 years old. 

After gaining second overall at Rally Waitomo the team are aiming to finish the season on a high with another podium result. The Taslo Engineering Mitsubishi Evo X had a few minor problems with the brakes overheating which hindered the team at Rally Waitomo, but the brakes have been overhauled since the last event and new brake ducting installed to keep the brakes cool with the hotter weather.

“I am very excited for the final round of 2017 New Zealand Rally Championship and we are looking forward to a good battle at the top of the field with the championship still on the line and it is great to have WRC driver Hayden Paddon back for this event. We have not had the best year so far due to mechanical issues, but we have kept our pace. We want to finish the year on another high after our podium finish at Rally Waitomo,” states Cox.

Rally New Zealand commences at 5.00pm on Friday with a ceremonial start and autograph session at The Strand, Tauranga. The action begins at 8.30am on Saturday at the Raglan Airfield with the crews covering 227 km of competitive stages over 12 stages during the weekend. Sunday will see the crews head into rounds south of Tauranga in the Manawahe area before concluding with a ceremonial finish at 4.15pm at the ASB Baypark Stadium.
