Hayden Paddon Book Launch

August 31 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$30 – $50


This is your chance to hear first hand about the explosive autobiography from New Zealand’s most successful rally driver, Hayden Paddon.

The book covers Paddon’s commitment to racing from a very young age, his many highs and lows on the local and international circuits, and his latest Paddon Rallysport initiative out of its base at Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell.

Driven provides rare insights into Paddon’s formative years growing up in Geraldine, his entry into competitive racing, success locally and ascendency on the international circuit, the 2017 accident in which a spectator was killed, his controversial axing from the Hyundai Motorsport team in 2018, and how he is regearing his career and maintaining a future focus.

Marking the first time Paddon has gone on public record about much of the above, Driven will chart a life story that celebrates self-belief, determination, work ethic and thinking big – following one’s passion and turning dreams into a reality.

Here’s your chance to get up close and personal with World Rally Driver Hayden Paddon! On August 31st you can enjoy a few beers and a yarn with Hayden right here at Hampton Downs. We are super proud to have been able to make sure as many of their supporters get to come along and meet the man himself (and buy a book of course)!



Hayden will come and spend a couple of hours with you on 31 August from 4.00 pm – this is where you can ask him your burning questions and hear his story, over a light meal and a few drinks!

Timings for the afternoon:

  • 4.00pm Cash bar opens;
  • 4.30pm Intro and Q & A with Hayden;
  • 5.00pm Book signing session starts with Hayden / make your own burgers served;
  • 7.00pm Evening concludes.

Tickets are $50 and are limited.

Includes a light meal as well as a copy of DRIVEN MY STORY HAYDEN PADDON (add an additional ticket for $30 with any full price ticket, as we appreciate a couple does not need two books!)
