Hayden Paddon has joined a new team for the second half of the 2012 rally season.

The Kiwi S2000 driver will drive a different Skoda Fabia car for the remainder of the year.

Upon a mutual agreement between ASM Motorsport and Paddon's company, they'll now be run by Austrian team Baumschlager Racing.

The Austrian team is well known in Europe and is considered a good step forward for Paddon in securing the S2000 title.

The partnership will begin at Rally of Finland next week.
