    Things happen for reasons, not excuses.

    Cheers to him for making that. Especially after the way Hyundai WRC team treated him last year.

    Anyway he shows what should have been somewhat obvious to anyone thinking about EVs a bit longer than 5 seconds before saying they will be crap.

    - EV rally car can look spectacular on a rally stage, it all depends on the power and electronic "aids" allowed
    - EV rally car is not silent, certainly not on gravel

    - The sound is different, some kind of sound generator both for spectator safety and to have a clearer idea what the driver is doing with throttle could be an improvement, the big question is if it should imitate petrol cars (somewhat silly) or be completely made up (weird and will take time to get used to).

    Regarding battery use, even if it runs empty after one stage that's really only a secondary problem. Fast charging is now widely available (see Taycan) and would require limited changes to itineraries, battery swap as they plan might be even easier, certainly when rallies are run in the middle of nowhere.

    Agree, very nice initiative from Paddon RallySport Group, together with Hyundai NZ and the University Canterbury Motorsport and all the other partners. To celebrate it, we reviewed the aero of the Kona EV rally car... hope you like it

    Paddon and NZ drivers - up soon for the Jack's Ridge Rallysprint for non-NZ viewers supposed to be streamed on the Repco Australia website www.repco.com.au (sometimes the Australian companies use their youtube and facebook options for livestreams as well or for back up options) from 12am Sunday UK time? (Sunday 1pm NZ summer time)

    Further information available from the Rally NZ website and Facebook page This venue was built by Andrew Hawkeswood on their property as a 6.5 km super special stage. The Rallysprint uses a loop of just over 2 in within the venue

    Great to see the 2021 WRC season underway this week in Monte Carlo. While we have a lot of good things happening here in NZ, WRC is not a completely closed door just yet, with some discussions on-going in the background. Looking at both WRC and R5 opportunities. There are certainly a few challenges in the world at present that makes it a little more difficult, but have not given up yet!
