Murphy is understandably disappointed that he and co-driver Mark Leonard are unable to contest October’s Waikato Rally or November’s Tauranga-based Rally New Zealand due to other commitments, but is pleased to offer this opportunity to Holder and co-driver Jason Farmer.
“I’m rapt we can offer this chance for Dave and Jason to drive another AP4+ car. It’s exciting to have the defending NZRC champion driving for the Penny Homes Holden Rally Team,” Murphy says.
Holder and Farmer will contest the two final rounds of the NZRC in Greg Murphy's car
Holder is also delighted by the opportunity. “It’s a
privilege to be asked by Greg to drive the car,” he says, “I’m looking forward
to being back in an AP4 car with Jason.”
Holder and Farmer will test with the Penny Homes Holden Rally Team immediately prior to the Waitomo event on 14 October.
