ANY doubt about the financial spin-off for Nambucca Heads for hosting the World Rally Championship should be erased – after a massive party of Kiwis hit town.
A 110-strong contingent from the Shaky Isles were in the valley to cheer countryman and top rally driver Hayden Paddon.
The tour group was well looked after by Mark Best and Malcolm Clunie, and led by Clint Brown, a New Zealand tv sports presenter, and Kiwi V8 Supercar legend Greg Murphy.

The Kiwi fan army enjoyed lunch at the V-Wall on both the Friday and Saturday.
“They were amazed at the beauty of the area. Some just enjoying the view, dipping their feet in the water or having a nice cold refreshment,” tour guide Mark told the Guardian.
“Many of the group have asked to return to the same location next year as they loved it so much.”
