Worth a thought - TeamGT

During the discussions with TeamGT over the weekend I learnt (amongst other things) that the cost of running a car for a single round is in the order of $8-10k.

Out of a semi humourous comment has come this:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....e=STRK:MEWA:IT

I hardly need any additional exposure for my business as we can't cope with the workload at present but I see it as a good opportunity for this forum to gain some valuable exposure.

I presume the round concerned would be Mallala in a few weeks time.

Anyone with a thought towards wanting to contribute (and attend) can PM me.

Cheers
Russ

Re: Worth a thought - TeamGT

Interesting concept, but alot of Money, even to promote Fordforums.

I would be willing to put up $1000 to the bid, but would be unable to attend but am happy for it to be managed by you Russ

Re: Worth a thought - TeamGT

I'd love to chip in.... couldn't be a huge amount though.

Currently working on a way to make a bit of a weekend out of the event (ie, if I don't take the missus, I don't get to go at all!).... plus there's no point going to SA without a visit to the barossa!

I could donate a portion from the FF Fund for this. OF course I am shit outta luck in attending since it would cost us 4k USD to just get to au.

Re: Worth a thought - TeamGT

Sorry, but I wouldn't be able to contribute. I just moved house...and have to support myself a fair bit more now. I also think I might have to change ISPs at the new place if I get disconnected like I did the first time I connected.

Otherwise I probably would have contributed a (small) amount.

I seriously think we have better things to spend the money on for the site.

Re: Worth a thought - TeamGT

It would be a great thing to do but i know that I wouldnt be able to contribute anything worth noting unfortunately. Too many bills to pay and not enough money to pay them seems to be the situation at the moment :(

Appreciate the bidding has ended but maybe we can still strike a deal with Team GT.

Curious what you would spend the money on AP?

Why don't you advertise 200 tickets at $40 a pop. Offer all ticket buyers an exclusive "Team GT Sponsor" tag and raffle off the prizes.

Passes for yourself and 4 guests
Hotlaps of the circuit x 2
Pit Tours
An exclusive social function hosted by the Team Drivers for you & your
Apparel Pack x 5
Framed, autographed poster

Reserve me 3 tickets if this goes ahead.
