NEW Zealand rally fans and supporters of Kiwi star driver Hayden Paddon can start planning their trip to Coates Hire Rally Australia and the FIA World Rally Championship next September following the release of an exciting travel package.
Motorsport tour specialists Williment Sports Travel have launched the package in conjunction with Rally Australia, offering a four-night, action-packed trip to the New South Wales Coffs Coast from $NZ1640 per person (excluding flights).
It will be a perfect way for fans to not only see the world’s best drivers in action, but in particular to follow the performance of Hayden Paddon, who will be driving for the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team.
Paddon, 27, the 2011 Production World Rally Champion, has realised his ambition to step up to a full factory drive with the Hyundai deal and will be keen to show his countrymen that he’s ready to repay their loyalty with a strong drive in the Hyundai i20 WRC car.
Based in the NSW coastal city of Coffs Harbour, Coates Hire Rally Australia on 11-14 September starts with a high-energy opening show on the Thursday, followed by three days of full-throttle action on the rural special stages and two nights on the Super Special Stage under lights.
The Williment Sports Travel package includes accommodation, rally passes, transfers to the stages and lunch packs.
The package is being launched at the ITM500 Auckland V8 Supercar event at PukekOHe this weekend. Visitors to the Coates Hire Rally Australia-Williment Sports Travel stand can enter a draw to win a trip for two to the Coffs Coast.
