The greatest rally

Dunedin’s non-driving, hitch-hiking mayor Aaron Hawkins thumbed down his most adrenaline-pumping ride yet, jumping into Kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon’s new electric powered rally car during the super stage of the Otago Rally.

It might be 10 months away, but organisers of the Otago Rally have already locked in their event date for 2022.

Two punctures were not enough to prevent former WRC driver Hayden Paddon from upping his Winmax Brakes Otago Rally trophy tally to eight. 

Former WRC star Hayden Paddon has opened a lead of 3 minutes 27.4 seconds at the end of the opening day of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship opener at the Winmax Brakes Otago Rally.

MotorSport New Zealand has established an environment sustainability fund to help offset the sport’s carbon emissions, with Otago Rally the first to offset its competitors’ carbon emissions.

Can anyone beat Hayden Paddon. And in the Classic Rally, who's the favourite given there's no international star in 2021?

New Zealand rally crews are heading to Dunedin en masse, with a record entry received for the 2021 Otago Rally.

She’s already a legend in the world of motorcycle racing, and now superbike racer Avalon Biddle is switching from two wheels to four to compete as Otago Rally’s celebrity guest driver.

New Zealand’s leading rally drivers will battle it out at the opening two rounds of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship for three spots in the Asia Pacific Rally Championship final at Coffs Harbour.

The 2021 Otago Rally is pleased to announce that they have partnered with popular local restaurants for this year's event.
