Esanda dumped as sponsor of International Rally of Canberra

Whilst speaking to the club captain of the BMSC , Duncan Payne, on Friday, it was learnt that Esanda will not be supporting the Rally of Canberra this year on November 16-19 this year.

It is understood that a deal could not be made with the organisers and the Esanda corporation over the sponsorship arrangement, and apparently the money offered by Esanda was not sufficient to secure the deal. This not only leaves a rather large hole in the funding for the event but leaves the entire event in doubt, as the event organisers will quickly have to find a new sponsor, and also reprint all of their handouts and guides etc., which are now being distributed. In what could be just be fighting over money, the Rally of Canberra is now seriously in doubt of being the well run and excellently organised event that it has been in the past few years.

***** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***** Expect my Rally Of Canberra Home page up soon, giving you the latest info on the best East Coast rally and the final round of the 1995 Australian Rally Championship. It will include all the latest press releases from the Rally Organisers, hopefully some driver interviews, some inside gossip on what is happening on the local scene, and hopefully the official endorsement of a few locals who may be competing. During the event we have secured our own in-car camera in one of the locals' cars, we have a person who is hopefull* going to be in the service crew of one of the leading aussie contenders (an E3 Lancer) and also someone who is a key offical, involved in the spectator marshalling and safety.

Also in the pipeline is a co drive with soon to be Triple ARC champion Neal Bates -- so it should be a very informative and up to date page
