I am not sure if Riley has anything to do with it but my understanding is they are not in a position to offer the whole car anyway, the Dogecoin sponsorship is going to fit around the existing supporters.

I reckon its probably only going to be a bonnet.

Apparently the are two positions on the car that have been discussed, at a cost of $20K and $50K per round, per car.

>Mercedes thought being involved in V8 Supercars would damage the image of their high brow brand.<

I wouldn't have thought that was the best statement to make when begging for sponsorship

I read the words and nowhere in those words is there anything concrete, in fact it sounded like the sort of thing put out to push the sponsor.

100%. Its consistent with the source identified and with the PR nature of his tabloid articles.

In an interview with the Mr & Mrs Klimenko recently (in #10's "In The Pits"), they made reference to some models in the E class Benz range being out of stock for a significant period of time, and attributed that, at least in part, to the Erebus V8SC racing program.

Is it a correct conclusion to draw? Only MBAuP would know for sure, presuming they are surveying their customers and potential customers on their purchase decisions.

The more interesting piece is that there is a dealer (group of dealers?) in the MB network supplying body parts to Erebus for trade prices. You might imagine that the call for E-class Benz body panels isnt to high, so as to notice when a dealer puts an order in for a half dozen bonnets, a few doors and the like, would be more than likely to stick out...

Perhaps the Erebutians may end up like a 'Dealer Team', supported by the network, funded by a levy per vehicle sold. Like the Volvo-ites did in the 240T works team days...

Or indeed Mr Penske moves in... or both...

also in the herald sun

Nothing wrong with this article, Reckon your original post might have overstated the article though.

quotes a reasonable quality source.

Lets hope it happens, definitely my interest in owning a Benz has increased
