    Hayden Paddon will make a long awaited return to the World Rally Championship - but there's a twist.

    Hayden Paddon will make a long awaited return to the World Rally Championship - but there's a twist.


    The kiwi driver was overlooked by his former team Hyundai for the upcoming Rally Finland, with Irishman Craig Breen the preferred option.

    Paddon has been in a rock and a hard place with his relationship with the Hyundai WRC team frayed, but with Hyundai New Zealand showing ongoing support, he felt exploring opportunities with other teams would be difficult.

    However in a change of fate, Paddon will now be on the start line for Rally Finland.

    He says the only twist is that it won't be with Hyundai but instead M-Sport team which is exciting.

    Hayden Paddon says Hyundai NZ have supported his move as it's positive for his sporting aspirations.
