Absolutely everything is included in this once in a lifetime package that will give you lifelong memories, of both relaxing and adrenaline, filled activities (all activities are optional). Not only the experience alone, but the significant time spent with Hayden as your host for two of the days will give you plenty of time to catch up on some of his adventures around the world, and even get some driving tips.
Hayden Paddon: New Zealand's most successful rally driver. He was PWRC world champion in 2011 and won the New Zealand Rally Championship in 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2018
Based on the spectacular multi-million dollar complex at Highlands Innovation and Technology Motorsport Park, Cromwell, New Zealand, Paddon Rallysport was initially formed in 2006 by Hayden and Chris Paddon to drive his rally career. Since 2016 PRG has run successfully all official Hyundai New Zealand Motorsport activities, and in 2018 set up new facilities and staff to tackle the next vision – alternative energy motorsport, the future!
Day 1: Fly to Queenstown, and be shuttled in luxury to your 5-star waterfront accommodation
where you will have free time to settle in, relax, and explore Queenstown at your own leisure.
Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s most exciting destinations. Surrounded by towering mountains, positioned on the edge of a lake, Queenstown is a hub of adventure, thrumming with adrenaline and an omnipresent sense of fun.
Day 2: You will be picked up by Hayden from your Queenstown accommodation in the morning and head towards Wanaka via the Crown Range – one of the highest public roads in New Zealand. After a quick stop in Wanaka, you will travel to the new Paddon’s Paddock vineyard for refreshments and a private tour. Heading next to Cromwell you will embark on an afternoon
of adrenaline fun, treated as VIP guests at the internationally acclaimed Highlands Motorsport Park. This will include a private commentary tour of the facilities, a tour of Paddon Rallysport, exclusive access to their private GT members lounge, Go-kart race with Hayden, Ferrari passenger fast lap around the race track and the ultimate self-drive experience in a Le Mans style Radical, where you will be behind the wheel with a professional driver in the passenger seat!
After your afternoon of fun, you will again join Hayden for a 4WD trip over the Nevis range, stopping for photos along the way, before arriving at Ben Nevis Station – your accommodation and base for the next two days. Throughout your stay at Ben Nevis Station, you will be hosted by their friendly staff, accommodated in their luxury 5-star accommodation, and taken care of with your own private chef throughout your stay. Facilities include separate lounge and kitchen area, wood fire, spa pool, and state of the art latest technology systems within the house.
Day 3: A leisurely start allows you to enjoy your gourmet breakfast and take in the sights and scenes of the Nevis valley. After lunch, you will be lead by the Ben Nevis Station guide for activities that will include Clay Target Shooting, Archery, and buggy driving. After your own morning of fun, Hayden will join your group to take you for a high-speed ride in the UTV buggy – an experience you will never forget. Tonight is dinner under the stars served at the station (optional for Hayden to join) finishing with fine wine and chocolate. You can relax, watch movies in the home cinema or get an early night.
Day 4: Again a leisurely start at your discretion is followed by breakfast and a final look around the station. A helicopter will then arrive to fly you back to Queenstown Airport via the amazing Remarkable Ranges, and a birds-eye view like no other, as you arrive into Queenstown.
