It isn't long now until the first round of the
NZ Championship in Whangarei. We had a really good test a fortnight ago and I
was happy to be driving the Suzuki Swift Maxi 1600 again.
It can be dangerous to get too confident after a
pre-season test because every team is always making improvements over the
off-season. You should never think that
you’ve made massive gains because realistically – its possible that so has
The thing that I was most happy about after
our test was that I really enjoyed myself. We had a stress free weekend with no
major issues and the car was really fun to drive. I wish I could drive it every
This last week we also announced our plans for the season and the news that Ben Atkinson from Australia is going to be my codriver. I'm really looking forward to working with Ben again as we have worked really well together in the past.

Last weekend we had our pre season test in preparation for the 2014 NZ Rally Championship. After several months out of the car it was great to get back in to MMMMMS and skid some gravel.
Lindsay & Lane had done a great job in organising the test and getting the mighty Suzuki ready with a brand new setup. We made some really good changes over the course of the weekend and I can't wait for Whangarei in 6 weeks time.
I have posted some pics and videos on my Facebook page HERE

Last night MMMMMS, Lindsay and I went and did our pre season promo photo shoot with Alan Dove.
I always love doing photo shoots with Alan and was most impressed the first time I met him back in 2005 when we did our first photo shoot together. He has an amazing eye for detail and getting the angles of his 'models' just right so that the photos always look super flattering. He also did the wedding photography for my sister Monica and her husband Nathan and the photos he took really captured them and the beauty of the day. So if you are in the Dunedin area and need a star photographer for family portraits, weddings or rally car posters :-) Check him out HERE
