Ford Australia making a Move in the right direction at V8 Supercars

Well i am impressed.

Ford had a stand, it was a really a large tent, larger than Holdens! it incorporated several of the teams gears at different stands in the tent.

It was constantly packed, and not just because of the rain, mainly because the public had never seen anything like this before. it was also interesting to note that at any given time there was a 70/30 mix of supporters (70ford/30holden)

I loved it and spent most of the day walking around asking everyone if they sold xxxl merch. (laminge is big... real big)

Well done Ford and keep it up!

Keep it up Minge... you're not the only customer frustrated by the fact that XXXL's aren't catered for.

I just have to say it on this thread... GO CRAIG!! :s6:

I suppose there's nothing worse than being a well dressed loser is there? I think today we came out winners in more ways than one.

true true, but in the grand scheme of things... we lost! winning a race is always good, and it looks like craig got used to the car. let's just hope he can keep on doing exactly the same thing from now on...
