Perfect debut for Paddon with NZ Hyundai at Otago Rally

Written by Media Manager.

Hayden Paddon and John Kennard secured their fifth outright victory in the Rally of Otago to create the perfect debut for their brand-new New Zealand-built Hyundai i20 rally car.

New Zealand's only driver/co-driver combination to compete in the World Rally Championship, Paddon and Kennard are home between international events to launch the first-ever New Zealand-developed Hyundai rally car which is part of a new partnership with Hyundai New Zealand.

Paddon and Kennard, from Geraldine and Blenheim respectively, blitzed the New Zealand Rally Championship field to win the two-day 40th anniversary Otago Rally by 9 minutes, 22.1 seconds from defending NZRC champion Ben Hunt and third-placed David Holder who competes in Paddon's former championship-winning car.

"It was pretty much the perfect debut for the new Hyundai," said Paddon. "If anything, it probably exceeded my expectations. The base of the car is very good. Our team worked very long hours coming up to the rally getting the car ready, and even right up to shakedown we were having problems so they were able to get on top on those right before the start of the rally which was great."

What do you do with all of your old car tyres?

Written by Media Manager.

Caring about the environment is something we all feel we ought to do more of. Some of us go out of our way to care alot, whilst some go out of their way to not care at all - stuck somewhere in the middle are most everyone else. We are aware that the planet is under tremendous pressure from all quarters but there is also a level of confusion about the whole conversation.

One thing we can all do is make easy choices about clearly obvious situations. Car tyres are not the kind of thing you ought to be throwing into a rubbish dump and burying under a layer of rubbish to be someone elses problem in potentionally a few hundred years. Car tyres are very slow to decompose and are full of a complicated blend of different materials. Thankfully technology has come to the rescue and has generated an easy solution.

2018 tyre recycling

We now have the ability, and easy access, to recycle car tyres in the South Island. This means that with your help we can all work together towards a much better future.

Toyota celebrates 50 years in New Zealand

Written by Media Manager.

In 1966 Toyota made a modest entry into the New Zealand car market, the 50th anniversary of which was marked by the planting of a native Puriri tree at the National Customer Centre in Palmerston North last Friday.

Although a great deal has evolved, a constant theme remains in Toyota’s business that is as prevalent today as it was 50 years ago.

“Toyota New Zealand entered the New Zealand market with the aim of leading the way to the future of mobility; that remains our mantra 50 years later,” says Alistair Davis, CEO of Toyota New Zealand.

“Recognising the 50 year journey is not only taking a moment to reflect back on the challenges and the triumphs but largely an opportunity to celebrate, motivate and prepare for the next 50 years.”
