    Next round of the NZRC is coming up, on the 26th of August - Rally Coromandel.

    Seeded entry list is out - http://nzrallychamps.co.nz/wp-conten...andel-2017.pdf

    I am co-driving in a Subaru Legacy this time as the Honda I was doing the championship in is still being re-shelled after our sudden stop at Canterbury. Should be excellent fun as the driver is quite fond of being sideways, although I have only done one event with him before.

    Hayden Paddon (with John Kennard) will be expected to comfortably win this, however the Hyundai reliability hasn't been quite as good as expected this year. So time will tell with that. We also have Brendan Reeves entered in a brand new Mazda AP4, so will be interesting to see how close he is, he comfortably won the event last year in an old model Mazda AP4, however the stages are reversed this year, so not really as much advantage in stage knowledge. Apparently his "secret" weapon last year was Pirelli's, but Hayden is also running them.

    Nice sunny day out at Catlins rally today, no snow this year!

    Classy drive from Andrew Graves to take the win (4th time?) by about a minute over Jeff Judd.
