A media statement from the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) issued on 3 June confirms that Rally New Zealand will run as a round of the World Rally Championship in late June in 2012.
The dates – Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 June – place Rally New Zealand as a mid-season event in 13-round 2012 World Rally Championship.
Peter (‘PJ’) Johnston, chairman of Rally New Zealand, says it’s fantastic to have the dates confirmed so that planning for the event can progress.
“We have already done a lot of planning towards the 2012 event, which will be based in Auckland as it was in 2010, but until the actual dates were known, we could not move forward with key elements. Now we can,” says Johnston.
The World Motor Sport Council meeting confirmed the 2012 FIA World Rally Championship calendar as follows: (Note: The date shown is the Sunday of the rally weekend. Itineraries and the specific start date for each event is subject to final confirmation by event organisers.)
