The 2012 FUCHS Australian Nationals moving to November

Sydney Dragway is looking to reposition the Australian Nationals away from events like the NRL and AFL Finals. September in Sydney is the most competitive month for attracting spectators and the repositioning will strengthen the Australian Nationals’ future.
