Great news for Hayden Paddon after big disappointment in Finland where he had a big shunt in testing with Ford Fiesta WRC from M-Sport completely destroyed and not able to start the rally.
Paddon has a big backers but he also comes from wealthy family of industrialists so it's not a big problem for him to find a funds for a drive.
I expected from him that he will contest WRC Rally Australia but I didn't know that he will also be in Wales but in a different car then in Australia.
Again he will drive for M-Sport Ford team but with rented car.
In Wales he will be behind a wheel of Ford Fiesta R5 and in Australia with the full spec Ford Fiesta WRC as expected.
I guess he will be better luck in the next outings then in Finland.
