The event will be known as the epay Silver Fern Rally 2010, and is epay’s first foray into motorsports sponsorship, and will help organisers showcase this event to New Zealand and the world.
Rally chairman, Hamilton’s Gary Smith, said following the announcement, “epay New Zealand Ltd is part of a worldwide company, and given that our competitors come from all over the globe (Europe, UK, Australia and Africa) it seemed fitting we form a partnership, and we welcome their association “
Smith went on to say “The epay Silver Fern Rally 2010 partnership will enable the organising team to create a positive, successful event.”
Commencing operations in 2003, epay has become New Zealand’s premium distributor of prepaid products with coverage of over 3,500 retailers. epay supplies the service behind prepaid transactions, to dispensing PIN’s, activating products, and initiating payment on behalf of over 50 products.
epay New Zealand’s Country Manager Roger Smith said, “We are really excited about being involved with this innovative event and the chance to visit some of our South Island retailers and customers. The event will also give both local and international competitors a chance to see, and stay in, the very scenic South Island of New Zealand. We recognise the need to support and assist in the development of sports like this within New Zealand, and we look forward to helping organisers build their event further.”
The epay Silver Fern Rally 2010 will start in Christchurch on November 14th with the drivers and cars then taking on over 1000km’s of competitive high speed stages before finishing in Queenstown on November 20th.
