    So AB have opened up a new store just down the road haha.

    eg.
    I was only at Napa in the weekend, if I had known ab had a new store up the road I would have checked it out. Will have to be an impressive store though, Napa/ab is one hell of a big well run store. Many times better than any other autobarn I've been to here. In fact most ab's up here are worse than supercrap.

    Looking at google maps the new ab is the wrong end of moss st if your coming off the motorway, you have to go past Napa to get to it.

    Correct mate, Logan AB store has been their front runner for as long as I can recall, the HQ gave him more concessions than any other store in the network doing his own thing out of Franchise agreements due to his turn over whereas other stores were rapt on the knuckles.
    Hence why I said they would be ropeable he taking Napas offer.
    The bad thing about this is the future americanisation change of our Reseller market in the future I'm seeing.
    Repco is owned by Napa FYI https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genuine_Parts_Company
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    So your 80-85% tbh are the SAME support base in most case's if could be broken.
    The point I have been making Bathurst, not just having the wider audience but more so the average punter incl women for its just as a huge WCup football/soccer match for eg, the Norm take notice of the result as a matter of interest when mentioned on the news - a smaller % portion takes notice of the Championship winner, that wider 80-85%, - again those only who do follow the sport race in race out.
    Who cares about them there converted, they have vested interest, incremental growth/sales comes from that other portion and as said they take notice of the Bathurst for a minute, whereas none of the Championship winner.

    I'm really not sure what exactly you're getting at.

    Are you saying you'd spend all you're advertising dollars on Bathurst and ignore the other 14 rounds?

    Who are your target customers? The rusted on fans/enthusiasts or non motorsport Mums and Dads?

    Is Bathurst the only event you can reach out to them?

    These are important questions and pivotal to your direction..

    Getting your brand in front of the target audience is paramount, but consistently displaying it over an extended period gets it burned into their minds....

    Look at the experiment a few years ago selling round liveries... It failed for a number of reasons including a lot of sponsors only getting 1 or 2 weekends of exposure for the year..

    If i had $100K to spend on advertising and thought motorsport was an excellent avenue to reach my potential customer base i'd try and get involved in the whole series, not 1 race.

    Do i read that to mean he will be at a team other than PRA?
    what is the chances of T8 running a 4th car with Richie in it?
    As I understand it he is under contract with Pra as an enduro co driver.

    I would think that means in order to race full time next year it must be with a release from PRA from his endurance cup duties.

    You wouldn’t think Tim wouldn’t stand in the way of Richie getting a drive if Pra can’t provide one themselves but funnier things have happnened.

    Not sure what the timing of the announcement means. I would think that it points to Pra retention because if you were going to release him, you would give yourself the best opportunity and most time.

    I'm whatever you like
    I haven't quoted anything what I'm doing.
    These are my observations - you and anyone else can take it for whatever.
    You need to get out of Vic, next year come to Bathurst and i'll have you set up so as you can watch whats going on in the Supercheap Track Store over whatever days you like.
    Yes some companies I watch and know only do Bathurst regards to motor racing.
    As do a huge portion of the crowd.
    I have been watching for years who do NO marketing/expenditure on any Supercar but ONLY promote through SCA pre and post Bathurst on their website as well as invested having their people on the ground over the 5days performing staggered "activation" presentations in this store.
    The customer base is all - they have specific targets for every type.
    Then there is SCA ClubPlus membership, over 2m is another huge target that have all types as well.
    All this just at Bathurst for many brands - actually maintains traction year in year out.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.
