Hayden Paddon's record-breaking time of 11:29.1 through SS1 has proven more than enough to open up an early buffer on day one. Ari Pettigrew clocked 11:56.7m to sit second, with Ben Hunt a further 7.8 seconds behind in third. Raana Horan is just 4 seconds behind Ben, with Jack Hawkeswood rounding out the top 5 with a time of 12:14.0. Hot on his heels in older tech is the impressive Jonty Brenssell, with Dunedin local Emma Gilmour wasting no time in getting to grips with her new Citroen C3 R5, setting a time of 12:14.6 to place 7th.
