Gary Smith went on to say that, “As epay New Zealand is part of a worldwide company, and given that our competitors come from all over the globe (Europe, UK and Australia), it seemed fitting we continue to grow our partnership developed in 2010, and we are excited about their further involvement with our event.”
epay New Zealand’s Country Manager Roger Smith commented on the announcement, saying, “This is a significant commitment from epay and we are really excited about being involved again with this innovative event. Through sponsorship we’re looking to increase our presence around some of our South Island retailers and customers, and drive awareness of both brands.”
Smith added, “We recognise the need to support and assist in the development of sports and events like this within New Zealand, and we look forward to working with organisers to continue to take their already successful event to the next level.” “We will again have spot silver the kiwi competitions and giveaway giftcards and spot prizes along the rally. So follow us on facebook and come down at the rally stops and get involved.”
