    Expect a long day on Friday with 3 repeated Waikato area stages and just a midday tyre change zone. Due to time differences fans in Europe and UK will be watching live rally action on WRCplus on a Thursday evening. The day will likely conclude with an evening Super Special back on the Auckland City water front.

    The 3 Friday stages of Repco Rally New Zealand 2022 will all be longer than Rally Sardegna's longest stage.

    That’s great news, I really hope we get a longer rally (like in Kenya), after all it’s half way around the world, might as well have a long rally, especially when it’s such a fast and flowing rally.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Heads up for people coming to NZ for the rally this year, to be aware of the personal safety/ property security issues in many parts of NZ that currently exist.
    One medical car park had 3 out 6 staff cars stolen last weekend. Car break-ins are common.

    A lot of rallying in NZ is on fast flowing cambered public roads. NZ also has tighter forestry stages including some that are within easy touring distance of service park. It is good to have variety.
