14/06/2012 - For New Zealand
Z Energy has announced a sponsorship partnership with emerging Kiwi rally talent, Hayden Paddon, who is back to compete in the New Zealand leg of the FIA World Rally Championship being 21 – 24 June in Auckland.
Z Energy Fuels Marketing Manager, Tim Rosenbrook, said he was thrilled for Z to be supporting a young Kiwi driver who is making great progress on the world rally stage.
“Our agreement will see Z support Hayden’s demanding world rally circuit campaign with Hayden in return assisting Z in the promotion of Z’s fuels portfolio, including our brand new 95 octane ZX Premium fuel,” said Tim.
“We reckon Hayden will be a great Z brand ambassador and role model for young Kiwis and we’ll be really excited to see him putting our ZX Premium fuel through its paces.”
Z’s ZX Premium petrol features a high dose of a cutting-edge engine and friction modification additive which can help protect an engine and improve performance.
“We ran an extensive global search for an ultra-modern engine cleaning additive and have sourced this product from one of the world’s leading fuel additive companies. It’s delivered outstanding results under test conditions and ZX Premium is being rolled out across Z sites nationally.”
Hayden said it was great for his team to establish a partnership with Z Energy as a leading local company.
“We share common Kiwi values and what Z is trying to achieve in New Zealand mirrors the success we are trying to achieve in the World Rally championship.
“I look forward to working closely with Z and showcasing the quality and advantages of their new ZX fuel while working towards our goal of World Rally Champion.”
Tim Rosenbrook said Hayden was particularly impressive due to his clarity of goals, including his aim to be World Rally Champion in 2015, and the clear commitment to his career path.
“We wish Hayden every success as a young ambitious Kiwi, taking on the rest of the world and look forward to him racing in Auckland in just a few days.”
