'UNSTOPPABLE GROWTH' FOR V8 SUPERCARS
11 March 2010,
AVESCO boss Tony Cochrane (pictured) predicts ‘unstoppable growth’ for Australia’s premier motor racing category after an 11.2 per cent net profit increase in 2009.
Cochrane received an SOS call from the Bligh Government to take over management of the bungled event following the sacking of IMG and has gathered six of the historic Gold Coast Indy Carnival’s most successful management personnel to ensure a successful event ‘rebirth’ this year.
In anticipation of a throwback to Gold Coast motor racings’ ‘glory days’, previous event identities Shane Howard, Geoff Jones, John Howe, Ken Jeffress and Brett Murray join Cochrane to launch the new Gold Coast Supercarnivale framework later this month.
Cochrane says the expertise of the newly-formed management team will oversee the event return to the forefront of the Gold Coast’s tourism and entertainment industry.
