Possum Bourne, driving his Subaru Impreza World Rally Car leads the World Cchampionship Rally of New Zealand after tonight’s super special stage at Manukau City.

Driving the car which Subaru Australia bought from the Prodrive team after last year's Rally of Australia, Bourne was three tenths of a second faster through the stage than Swedish driver Thomas Radstrom in the second of the two factory Fords.

"I'm rapt," said Bourne. "It's great to get the jump on all these world championship drivers. But the stage is only a very small part of the event and the real competition starts tomorrow near Raglan."
