Geraldine rally driver Hayden Paddon is sixth after the first full day of the World Rally Championship event in Sweden.
The 27-year-old, who's been promoted to Hyundai's top factory team and is driving injured Spaniard Dani Sordo's car, is a minute 37 seconds behind Norwegian Andreas Mikkelsen of Volkswagen.
It's Paddon's first WRC race this year.
Paddon has experienced co-driver John Kennard beside him. They have contested Rally Sweden only once together in 2012.
