Reeves back for Coromandel three-peat

Australian stars Brendan Reeves and Nathan Quinn will both contest Hyundai NZ Goldrush Rally of Coromandel next month.

Reeves will be gunning for his third straight win at the one-day Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship event based out of the seaside town of Whitianga and will once again pilot the Force Motorsport Mazda 2 AP4 car he used last year and at the recent Stadium Finance Rally South Canterbury.

Fellow countryman Nathan Quinn has impressed in three different outings in this year’s championship, where he has driven three different cars to solid results.

Quinn, who remains a championship contender, has yet to confirm which vehicle he will compete in.

Also returning the NZRC field for the first time since Whangarei is Pukekohe’s Dylan Turner. Turner will run his Audi AP4 with a new livery at Coromandel.

Raana Horan has entered the event though it is unknown whether he will be using his new Skoda Fabia R5 or his Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX. Phil Campbell has also entered but is yet to confirm whether it will be in his Ford Fiesta AP4.

WRC star Hayden Paddon will be the favourite for the August 18 rally as he lines up alongside Mal Peden in the Hyundai New Zealand i20 AP4+.
