APRC round to remain in Canberra, despite earlier reports
The Brindabella Motorsport Club has announced it will play host to the Asia-Pacific Championship in June 2018 after a successful event this year.
Christmas has come early for organisers as new major sponsor, Netier, has come on board to deliver the international event who have made the event possible.
“It feels like an early Christmas for many here at the BMSC, the support we have had from our local community has been fantastic and I am thrilled to be able to host the FIA Asia-Pacific Championships again for 2018,” Clerk of Course Adrian Dudok said.
The event will take to the Canberra forests on June 1 to 3 and will see world class cars competing alongside national and local competitors.
“Canberra has a long history of rallying at the national and international level, our club works to provide the best possible event no matter the level and we will continue to grow the event to being the best it can be for all involved.
“CAMS have worked with us to ensure we can get the event on the road again and the BMSC would like to thank them for their support this far.
“The club will now get underway to prepare for the event and would encourage everyone interested in rallying to volunteer by emailing [email protected]
The event will be supported by the ACT Government who continue to provide in kind and financial support to ensure the events sustainability.
Editor’s Note: Our recent story that the APRC round would be relocated to Coffs Harbour and run by the Rally Australia team has clearly changed.
When the article was released, Rally Australia staff confirmed that the event was heading their way, but Netier’s sponsorship of the event in Canberra seems to have been one of the factors in seeing the event remain in the ACT.
We’ll have more on the APRC round in Canberra following Rally Australia this weekend.
