Netier is proud to be the new naming sponsor of The Netier National Capital Rally from 1 – 3 June 2018.  The agreement will see Netier continue its support of the event for a second year.  After a successful event in 2017, the rally will once again be rounds of both the Australian and Asia Pacific Rally Championships. The Netier National Capital Rally will bring a stunning range of cars, both international and local to Canberra’s forests in June with the event tipped to increase in popularity from last year’s debut international event.

Gordon Hayes, The Managing Director of Netier explains, “The Netier National Capital Rally is an important event for the Canberra community, as Canberra’s only international motorsport event it provides a platform to show Canberra to millions of people nationally and throughout Asia.  As a Canberra business, Netier is proud to be involved with the rally and the benefits it provides to Canberra.”
