Rally New Zealand organisers are buzzing with the news today that international fans will be welcomed into the country when the FIA World Rally Championship returns later this year.
The World Rally Championship will be one of the first global sporting codes to host an event in New Zealand following today’s announcement by the Government that border restrictions will be lifted.
