National Capital Rally extends local deal

The Netier National Capital Rally will once again be associated with a locally-based Toyota dealer after announcing National Capital Toyota as its 2019 vehicle partner.

The news comes off the back of a successful first-year partnership between the two parties in 2018, as the independent family-owned Toyota dealership looks to continue its support of the event.

With Canberra-based drivers Lewis and Harry Bates both behind the wheel of Toyota Yaris AP4s, the brothers will both be looking to take out a maiden national title.

National Capital Toyota General Manager was thrilled the Tuggeranong-based dealership could get back on board with the CAMS Australian Rally Championship’s second round.

“We are proud to renew our partnership with the Netier National Capital Rally,” Hanrahan said.

“As a local Canberra community-run event, the professionalism for which this event is run is a credit to all involved.

“As a local family run and owned business, we take pride in supporting local community-based events.

“With Toyota increasing its support for the Australian Rally Championship in 2019 now fielding two AP4 spec Yaris for locals Harry and Lewis Bates we look forward to the revamped format of this year’s event.”

The Netier National Capital Toyota will take place around Pierces and Uriarrain Canberra on 11 May 2019.
