Description of this Book

Hayden Paddon was just a boy growing up in Geraldine - in love with racing and dreaming big. Starting with nothing, and wholly determined to beat the odds, he set out on a remarkable 20-year pathway to the World Rally Championship, where he footed it with the best rally drivers on the planet. But it didn't come easy. In Driven, Paddon details the many highs and lows along the road to the top. He opens up about his struggles with bullying, depression and loss as a young man, and goes on public record for the first time about the 2017 accident in which a spectator was killed and his controversial dismissing from the Hyundai Motorsport team in 2018. It's the real account from Paddon himself, in his own words, as he sets the record straight about his dramatic life on and off the road. Driven is captivating, complex and inspirational - a mile-a-minute biography that celebrates self-belief, hard work, and turning dreams into a reality.
