Ben Hunt burst onto the New Zealand Rally scene in 2008. Following in his dad’s footsteps in a class B Toyota Starlet, he achieved victories in both Nelson & Westland.
This ignited a passion that in 2011 saw him complete a perfect season with 5 class victories, 10 days of competition undefeated, 1st place in 2WD in the NZRC, 1st place 2WD in the Asia Pacific Championship NZ round, 1st NZ junior championship, winner of the Fiesta Sporting Trophy and 6th overall in NZ Gold Star Championship. This set a new New Zealand record of the only team to go an entire season undefeated.
In 2015 Ben became the NZRC champion, and for the 2016 campaign he was given a brand new Subaru WRX STI NR4 to take on future challenges with.
In 2018, Ben placed 2nd overall and was awarded the Hella Moment of the Rally in the Rally of South Canterbury for his win over Hayden Paddon.
