Paddon shows off his power slide

Posted in News, Motorsport

With the WRC Rally Australia all wrapped up, finishing on November 20, our own home-brewed rally champion, Hayden Paddon, took a few lucky ‘victims’ out for a blast in his Hyundai i20 WRC car.

WRC drivers are known for their exceptional power slides through corners, performed as a way of maintaining speed and momentum without having to brake, but this little number is something more akin to what you’d find in the national drifting championship … is there something you aren’t telling us Hayden? D1NZ and WRC management need to get onto this for an epic crossover asap.

But we don’t need to sit here spinning you anymore fancy yarns about what happened — Hayden’s kindly chucked a vid of it on his Twitter. Check it out below:

Jaden Martin

The young-gun around the office, Jaden grew up inhaling paint fumes and bog dust at his old man's panel shop. Qualified to bend words, with a 'brofessional' diploma in car building, he's been trying to finish his frankenstein creation of Australian-based debauchery crammed with Japanese- and Euro-inspired goodness. You'll find him writing for NZ Performance Car and producing content online.
