Hayden Paddon ready for Sweden, reveals new car livery

Next week’s Rally Sweden will be first snow event for Kiwi driver Hayden Paddon and his co-driver John Kennard. They will compete in Škoda Fabia S2000 prepared by ASM Motorsports.

Paddon today revealed Fabia’s livery as he continues preparation for snow and ice debut.

“I have studied a fair bit of video footage and there certainly seems to be more room for error with snow banks. The grip levels are very good with snow tyres but also differ considerably between the snow and ice, which is something I am yet to learn.”

“In the SWRC our two main rivals for the season will be Irishman Craig Breen in a Ford Fiesta S2000 and Swedish driver PG Andersson in a Proton Satria Neo S2000 as we’ve seen compete in New Zealand. PG will be particularly interesting to track with this being his home event”, Paddon said earlier this week to Kiwi newspaper.
