Went to the motorshow for three days, then up to Sydney and back down to Melbourne for the Grand Prix.  I was told it was costing 8000 euros to have it at the grand prix, well worth it.  First time I will see the Aston Martin DBS as well at the GP amongst others.

8,000 Euros is piddle money for the interest that car will generate.

Going only by the amount of interest even this stupid little website got during the Clipsal 500 - they have well and truly publicised their craft.

The real question is - what's their ROI?  I mean, everyone who could possibly have wanted and had the capacity for a Veyron already must SURELY know about them... what else do they get out of plugging a car which is already selling at a loss?

Saw the pics, and as much as I'd have enjoyed it, I don't think I'd really have appreciated it like I should - so kinda glad I didn't go if you get what I mean.  TDC might post his pics here eventually - even though it doesn't cost anything. :tilt:

Give me some more time.  Helping set up the cars at Albert Park tomorrow so might have some more photos of note.

Sweet.  By "set up" you mean...?

Really just take photos of the cars when no ones around.  Sometimes help move some of the cars.  I don't really have a role, just like looking at the cars without the crowd.
