I realise that this will enrage many posters and upset others but I really do think Champagne Charlie's Gunmball adventure falls sinto the realm of cheap publicity
Ok, Morgan are now competing in a very hard market but surely he can do better than this. What next- the Morgan golf cart featured in 'Golf' Magazine?
I know many TMers will say " Ah, he's whingeing again" but i just cannot help thinking that Charles ain't doing an awful lot to keep his traditional market and at the same time not imressing any new buyers!
PS is the Oak Racing car REALLY a Morgan- What a joke!
It cannot be "publicity" as the entry prejudices the perception of the company and the product. But I agree with others here. It is his idea of fun which everyone is entitled to. They should simply have been discrete about it.
I do not understand your last comment. The Company is very clear on the depth of their partnership with Oak Racing.
“Whilst Morgan sports cars enjoy a great history we have also gained a reputation for pioneering new technology, and I believe LMP2 represents a superb proving ground in which to develop innovative new methods”.
“Our partnership presents the opportunity for the next generation of Morgans to embrace new technological advances, particularly with the implementation of materials such as carbon fibre and top level aerodynamics, elements that are key to LMP2 cars. What’s more, we now have the chance to develop efficient, high-end performance machinery.”
