Waitetuna's Jack Williamson will be racing in the Subaru R4.

Raglan Rally features local Jack Williamson in a Subaru R4

The final round for the NZ Rally Championship will take place in Raglan and Te Akau on Saturday 13 October.  Many of you will know the Williamson family who live on Cone Hill Farm at Waitetuna, and Steve, Brenda and Jack would love the locals to get behind their rally team.    

While Jack has been rallying in the NZRC and moving up the ranks for the last three seasons, this is his first season driving the Subaru R4.  “We have been improving with each and every rally and the team are really looking forward to this one”.

On the night before the rally (Friday 12 October) there will be a special ceremonial start down in the heart of Raglan starting at around 5pm.  Every rally car will be parked up and on display for the public to view   This gives everyone a chance to mix and mingle with the drivers and view all the rally cars up close.  Drivers will include NZ’s own WRC driver Hayden Paddon.

For anyone interested in following the rally as a spectator on the Saturday, there are special rally maps that have been distributed around the businesses in Raglan.
