Allport disappointed at Ralliart decision

Allport disappointed at Ralliart decision

Three-time New Zealand Rally Champion Neil Allport has been left disappointed after having his Ralliart New Zealand franchise taken off him, but will continue to run his highly successful Neil Allports Motorsport business.

Allport began running New Zealand’s performance Mitsubishi franchise five years ago and has delivered successful results, including taking Juho Hanninen to a close-fought second in the Production World Rally Championship in 2008.

“This decision is bitterly disappointing, since taking over the Ralliart New Zealand franchise in 2007 we have gone from strength to strength with parts sales, vehicle preparation and leasing to grow the Ralliart brand in New Zealand and overseas,” said Allport. “It is hard to imagine any other company with more experience in the sport than ourselves. I have won three national titles and 32 national championship rallies, plus a number of P-WRC events with my team.”

The other side of Allport’s business, Neil Allport Motorsports, will continue to provide race and rally parts sales, competition car leasing and the high quality vehicle preparation and servicing they have prided themselves on since 1986.
