Both of these drew an extraordinary number of visitors to our stand, to speak to us about our latest products, the technology that goes into them, and to meet the new teams we are sponsoring throughout 2014. We invest a lot in motorsport around the world, and Autosport International gives us the perfect platform to bring all of that together for one high octane show.”
“Fans love to get up close and personal with the cars, drivers, riders and the Babes. It was great to see a bigger presence of fans at this year’s show compared to last year, as it shows how much the brand is really growing in all sorts of areas.”
