Nitro, Olympic swimmers and Super GP...OOOOWAAAAHHHAAA

Who watched "A Current Affair" tonight?????

Mr. Brooks is the same man with Mrs. Linda Brooks behind Nitro Energy Drinks official sponsor of the Nitro Super GP... Lets hope Super COCHO can save the day and pick up the pieces for the event. Maybe he can swing one of those so no good Supercar sponsors to help out .....

Naming rights sponsorship goooooone....

If the mail is correct, Nitro is gone gone gone as the naming rights sponsor for the SuperGP. 66 days to go, stay tuned for more twists and turns...

Was pretty sure I heard the chairman of the event (Terry Mackenroth) saying a week or 2 ago that even if they didn't get any money from Nitro that it wouldn't impact on the event too much

So either they weren't putting in too much to begin with, or he already knew they were gone and was just trying to soften the blow

Nitro will still get benefits as the show is still called that Nitro Super GP on google, while the commentators will also likely not understand the semantics of paying bills!

Who else could see this coming?

Sports Minister Phil Reeves on Tuesday told parliament he had been advised the organisers had to terminate the naming rights sponsorship agreement with Nitro Distribution, after it failed to make payments under the contract.

Mr Reeves said checks had been done on Nitro's financial position before the deal was signed and there had been no indication the company would have trouble meeting its obligations.

Well I think when that deal was first announced a bunch of us here on the forum called it for what it was, another Firepower shell game deal. Interesting that people on the sidelines have more sense than those in charge.

The inaugural Gold Coast SuperGP has suffered a major blow, losing its $1 million-plus naming-rights sponsor only two months out from the race around the streets of Surfers Paradise.
Quote:
At the time the company's managing director Matt Nielsen said the three-year deal was worth more than $1 million in its first year.

Eyebrows were raised earlier this year when Nitro, associated with embattled Olympic swimmer and former bankrupt Neil Brooks, was announced as the naming rights backer of the SuperGP (formerly the Gold Coast Indy).
