Shane van Gisbergen might have to wait a bit longer to have his first stint in a rally car this year, due to a potential schedule clash with the proposed date for the postponed Winton SuperSprint.
The Red Bull Ampol Racing driver previously revealed he was planning to travel to New Zealand for a rally next month, but those plans have been benched due to Winton being rescheduled to 31 July - 1 August.

Speaking to Supercars.com in an all-in driver chat from the Gold Coast, van Gisbergen admitted there are a few hurdles delaying his rally hopes.
“It is partly money,” van Gisbergen said.
“Over here in Australia I don’t have as many contacts as what I do in New Zealand.
“In New Zealand, there are a lot of events I can do, but my rule from RD [Roland Dane, Managing Director and Team Principal] is I have to have a two-week window afterward to be able to get back to Australia just in case quarantine gets backdated.
“There was going to be one but now that’s the new Winton date, so I don’t know when I will be doing something.”
