Motorsport Australia can advise that the 2021 Netier National Capital Rally will be postponed until 9–11 April.
Due to torrential rain in the region, organisers were unable to receive a permit from ACT Parks and Conservation Service, meaning the event was unable to go ahead this weekend.
“We’re disappointed that the event has to be postponed, however event organisers have worked quickly to secure a new date just two weeks later in April,” Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport and Commercial Operations Michael Smith said.
Netier National Capital Rally’s Adrian Dudok said it was pleasing to see the event would run.
“A lot of work has gone into this event and while it’s unfortunate we can’t run the event this coming week, to have a new date locked away so quickly is a terrific result,” Dudok said.
“We can’t wait to welcome everyone to this event in April and thank our sponsors, competitors and officials for their ongoing support.”
The Netier National Capital Rally will now open the 2021 RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship season on 9–11 April.
