    Round 1 - Otago Rally is on.

    A mix of R5 and AP 4 cars lined up. Local operation Brand support for Paddon - Hyundai, Hunt - Skoda Fabia Evo2, Jack Hawkeswood - GR Toyota, Robbie Stokes - Ford.

    Stage 7 cancelled due to loose cattle stop/ grate on the road being loose. Usually steel slats over a shallow pit.

    1. Paddon (in the long used AP4 Hyundai i20) 2. Hunt - first rally in a left hand drive (in the fresh Skoda Fabia Rally 2 Evo) 3. Horan in the Skoda Fabia R5 (has an Fabia Evo back in the garage to be used later)
