Ben Hunt has matched Ari Pettigrew's time of 11:51.4 through Danseys Pass, for the first time in the rally preventing a clear-cut 1-2 by the two PRG teammates. Hunt remains shy of Ari's total by 50.2 seconds, with only the short 8km Shag Valley Back Road and the 2.15km super special in Dunedin City to run on Day One. A 4 minute Lateness Penalty to Raana Horan drops him out of immediate contention, with Emma Gilmour and Jack Hawkeswood benefiting - shifting up one spot each to fourth and fifth respectively.
