Victorian Luca Giacomin will be on a flight to New Zealand as soon as borders open to fulfil an opportunity to test Hyundai New Zealand's AP4 rally car.
Giacomin will have twelve months to take up the offer to drive the turbo charged four-wheel-drive machine after placing as the first Australian or New Zealander in the Hyundai NZ Global Rally Series.
With borders currently closed due to COVIC-19, the test drive will have to wait (for now).
Giacomin was unsurprisingly very happy to take up the chance.

"Congratulations Paddon Rallysport on their endeavor to support rallying through COVID-19 with a virtual series," he said.
"Now (I must) to try convince NZ Prime Minister to open up the borders ASAP for a rally test I've found myself involved in."
Organised by Hayden Paddon and his Paddon Rallysport team, the four round series on the popular Dirt Rally 2.0 game, saw people from all around the world compete for a number of prizes.
