Look at Audi, they used the R18 in a major commercial campaign talking about lightweight technologies.
So true. I usually fall in love with my cars due to their involvement in racing. BMW made a great move joining DTM, espcially by winning the championship. IMHO nothing related to cars is more important than racing. Unfortunetly in these uncertain economic circumstances, factories look to cut costs and in many cases its racing that gets the axe. Lets hope this success and involvement continues and becomes incorporated into the brand image.
