Andrew Barr is letting you all know about the 2013 National Capital Rally:
Canberra will host the 2013 National Capital Rally, which will hit the streets of Canberra and surrounds from 1-3 March 2013.
A ceremonial start in the city will ensure spectators can view the Rally’s competing cars and crews, while forest viewing areas will provide close access to the action, only minutes from the city.
The National Capital Rally is round 1 of the 2013 Bosch Australian Rally Championships (ARC), which is broadcast on national television, generating massive national exposure each year. Last year’s event was seen by 2.5 million viewers nationally.
