    Nasser was at the same International auto show in Qatar a few weeks back with his Redbull off road race VW Touareg.

    We also had a booth at the same show with our offroad buggies.

    Nasser along with many other potential customers was invited to come test drive our buggies.

    He was very interested at the show and wanted to drive our buggies.

    He had a blast & loved how light weight they were, how they handled and the power to weight performance.

    He plans on coming back for more fun,,,,and then ordering one for himself.

    He will not be getting any promotional discounts or anything for driving our vehicles,,,,,,,just a big grin
    Well if that does turn out to be the case you will have done very well, Company's promoting anything from lipsticks to limmos spend a fortune on getting celebrities/superstars seen with there products although none will admit to it because it will no doubt put off potential paying customers.

    What would impress me is if he turned round and said he wanted it discounted or even free and you told him to sling his hook.

    Seriously? Isn't it pretty obvious that there isn't any mini buggy manufacturer making enough money to pull off promotional stunts like that? Or take hits on their products like that? Come on...
