7:02 pm on 25 March 2011

The New Zealnd rally driver Hayden Paddon has made a solid if unspectacular start to the Rally of Portugal to be fifth equal in the second tier production class, after the opening special stage around the waterfront in Lisbon.

He's just over three and a half seconds off the production class lead and is 22nd overall.
