According to this press release Canberra has been chosen once more to host the National Capital Rally again, which would seem to be a given due to it’s name but I really don’t know anything about it.
Rally driving, I believe, is a kind of race where nobody is racing against you and you need to do a lot of Tokyo drifting to win it.
Sounds fun to do but I can’t imagine watching it, at least not without a pumping j-pop soundtrack and a fish out of water story to frame it.
If you can imagine watching it, and have decided that your imagination isn’t enough and would actually like to see this thing for real, mark out the 28th of Feb in your calendar.
Canberra is set to host the National Capital Rally for the second time, with the streets of Canberra and the Territory’s pine forests set to come alive for cities biggest motorsport event.
The rally will commence with a ceremonial start in Civic Square at 4pm on Friday 28 February, and will continue until Sunday 2 March. It is the first round of the Australian Rally Championships (ARC), and will be broadcast on national television.
The ARC returned to Canberra as a Centenary celebration in March 2013, for the first time in five years.
Spectators will have the opportunity to witness the country’s finest drivers battle it out over some of Australia’s best roads for rallying, with vantage points at Kowen Forest, Laurel Camp and Uriarra State Forest.

Please excuse any innacuraies in my description of rally driving, my entire understanding of racing comes from a lifetime of playing Mario Kart and an odd obsession with Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
