Harry Bates looks forward to Canberra homecoming

Young Toyota driver Harry Bates will be back on home ground this weekend when the Australian Rally Championship (ARC) rolls in to Canberra for the National Capital Rally.

Harry Bates looks forward to Canberra homecomingThe event kicks off on Friday with Bates out to go one better after finishing in second place at the Forest Rally in Perth last month.

Piloting the Toyota Genuine Parts-backed Corolla S2000 alongside co-driver John McCarthy in Canberra, Harry says he’s looking forward to competing in his own backyard.

“We scored a podium here last year in my first ARC rally, and it would be nice to improve on that result, especially in front of family and friends,”

“I was happy with our performance in WA, and the championship position is a nice one to be in, but I’ve been focused on preparations for Canberra and making sure we’re ready to attack from the start.”
