NZ media have reported that Rally New Zealand needs to find another $1 million in funding in order to host a round of the World Rally Championship in 2020. news hub.co.nz believe that it would be then up to the WRC Promoter to rubber stump the country's return to the championship - but likely only for one year. "With the America's Cup schedule for Auckland in 2021, Rally NZ is unlikely to push for a multi-year deal," Newshub reported yesterday.
"Instead, they're looking to provide an alternative venue, until Australia can find a different location themselves."
Former WRC star, Hayden Paddon, was also quoted in the article, with the country's hopes seemingly increasing. "I know there's a lot of work going on behind the scenes," Paddon told Newshub. "I think it's looking very promising - it could be here next year as a one-off event." "I think New Zealand's in a very strong position, they just have to find a bit of funding," Paddon said.
