Hayden Paddon will contest the Catlins Rally on New Zealand's south island early next month, as he tries to keep his eye in. The former WRC star had a program of events organised for this year, but the COVID crisis soon put paid to that. Not to be deterred, the Cromwell-based Paddon will enter a number of rallies and circuit races. "With our WRC and NZRC plans somewhat blown to pieces this year, we have focused on putting together a good variation of events to ensure we are keeping match fit, but also some iconic events that allow us to push our limits," Paddon said. "It’s an ever-evolving plan but we are looking at a mix of rallies, circuit racing, and hill climb events." After Catlins, he'll enter the Ashley Forest Rallysprint in September, before heading north for the Rally NZ test event in mid-November. He'll also enter four rounds of the SIERDC Endurance race series. "We are still putting together plans around our Hyundai Kona EV test and launch plan which will be happening over the next few months and is incredibly exciting," Paddon added. "Progress is going well and it promises to be every bit as good as what we hoped for."
