Paddon said: “I’ve really loved this event. I can honestly say that it’s one of the best rallies of its kind anywhere in the world. The stages are awesome and the atmosphere has been great, especially for the two runs through the town on Saturday night.”

Paddon told Stuff: “At just 18 years of age, I’ve been very impressed with Jared. This is a tough rally for a co-driver and he’s done really well.”
