Why you must go to the Otago Rally

In this week's episode of SPIN, The Rally Pod the team is in high spirts as they look back on last weekend's Otago Rally


Sometimes podcasts can take you to some weird and wonderful places. So while this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod had an Otago Rally nucleus, the team covered several other fascinating but unexpected bases too.

Lisa O’Sullivan was joined by David Evans, George Donaldson and Luke Barry who offered their thoughts on the opening round of the New Zealand Rally Championship – with a particular focus on what made Hayden Paddon’s record-extending ninth Otago Rally victory so impressive.

But Paddon wasn’t the only driver that stole the show as professional drifter ‘Fanga’ Dan Woolhouse and Olympic gold medalist Hamish Bond both gave strong accounts of themselves, and Deane Buist scored a strong victory in the Classic Rally.

To hear the discussion in full, tune in to this weekend’s episode where you’ll also encounter an impromptu unboxing, a lesson in how to drift from George Donaldson and memoirs of Toyota’s Celica Twincam Turbo.
