Hayden Paddon accelerates the transition of his co-pilot


John Kennard has been the inseparable co-pilot Hayden
during the training stage of the pilot, new zealander and in his appearance in
the WRC. Co-pilot and mentor Paddon from more than 10 years ago, Kennard announced
a couple of months ago that it would leave the right hand of the car from Paddon
to go
to occupy another role within Hyundai Motorsport after the Rally of Finland. The firm moved quickly
the respect and met Hayden Paddon with Seb Marshall, couple that already debuted in
the last Rally of San Remo to start to generate synergies. However, the
events have unfolded.

The last Rally of Argentina was one of the more moments
low into the path of Hayden Paddon
, as the pilot himself new zealand
recognized. Beyond passing from heaven to hell in just a year, since
in 2016 he won his first rally of the WRC in Villa Carlos Paz, the strong overturning
suffered with the Hyundai i20 WRC Coupe has caused John Kennard not be able to
to be in the Rally of Portugal
. Doctors have dismissed that compete in
the next round of the WRC in the wake of problems of the hip who suffers the
from a long time ago.

In this way, Hayden Paddon and Seb Marshall will face together
the Rally of Portugal
, in what will be their debut together in the WRC. Although this is not
was planned until the Rally of Germany, the new zealander and former co-pilot of
Kevin Abbring should accelerate its adaptation to compete together in the
always complex stretches north from the neighbouring country. In this aspect, Paddon and
Marshall have been uploaded to the Hyundai i20 WRC Coupe during the test the computer
has done in Sardinia these days. All in all, it is expected that Paddon and Kennard can
be together in Italy, Poland and Finland
