Chinese Grand Prix 2004

shanghai

"next weekend's inaugural chinese grand prix could be the most significant race in the history of formula one" - alan baldwin, reuters.

"in my view this is a very important race, probably the most important race in the history of motorsport" - norbert haug, mercedes.

wuah... kok kedengerannya bombastis sekali ya? ada apa dengan china? FIA nggak akan mbawa sirkus F1 ke lokasi yg nggak 'prospek'. dimana ada uang disana ada F1, n mercedes sekarang ni ceritanya lagi seneng banget soalnya weekend besok mereka punya show di negara yg penduduknya paling padat sedunia, dan pasar yg berkembang paling pesat.

ferrari juga barusan buka showroom di china. tahun ini ferrari bisa njual 50 mobil, target tahun depan harus bisa njual minimal 100 sedan sport super mewah.

buat bmw china juga pasar yg paling cepat pertumbuhannya, tahun ini bmw njual 16,620 mobil di china, hongkong, n taiwan. peningkatan volume 23.9 persen dibanding tahun 2003 kemaren. rekor penjualan terbanyak untuk 760Li V12 (seri paling mahal bmw) juga dipegang china.

jaguar yg mo pensiun akhir tahun ini juga barusan ikut jualan mobil di china. yg menarik, mereka akan nulis nama 20 orang pembeli pertama jaguar di mobil mark webber n christian klien minggu besok :D

yah, tapi penjualan mobil itu cuman salah satu obyek yg ditawarkan china ke bisnis formula one. di sisi lain china juga menawarkan banyak uang melalui sponsorship. china ini pasar baru, punya potensi besar secara komersil. tim jordan sudah deal kerjasama dg sponsor china, developer property shoulu-huayuan dan B&Q china. di gp china, iklan rokok juga nggak dilarang.

"everybody commercially is looking at the far east, looking at china, the growth in china, the potential markets out there. it certainly broadens our horizons as a sport" - david richards, bar honda.

"it's more about when you talk to companies, they are all looking to expand their markets and china is obviously on everybody's agenda" - david richards, bar honda.

"in terms of market power, i think nothing so far compares with this race" - mario theissen, bmw.
