FW1 celebrates round one
Appco Group Australia Prosales Division's waterless car cleaning system, FW1, celebrated a great start to the 2012 FW1 Aussie Racing Cars Super Series.
This is the second consecutive year that FW1 has been involved as the Series' major sponsor. The first round for 2012 was held in Adelaide from March 1-4 with record crowds attending the event.
FW1 received great exposure over the four days through the FW1 stand, which sold merchandise to eager spectators. The FW1 promo girls proved to be a success spruiking the product through free demonstrations and handing out FW1 lanyards to attendees.
This year's series will consist of six rounds. At the end of the first round series champ for 2011 Adrian Cottrell was in first place, Kyle Clews in second place and close behind in third place Tyler Owen.
This year is set to be a stellar year for the category, which is continuing to gain momentum in Australia. Appco Prosales Australia Chief Operating Officer Ty Pedersen is very pleased with the way the event is tracking.
"It is very exciting for FW1 to be involved with such a great category. Aussie Racing Cars' drivers are using the product on their vehicles and advocating on behalf of the brand. We have already received such great feedback and look forward to what's to come," Mr Pedersen said.
