THIS year we’re taking a close look at the great membership offers made by teams in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship and this time around we’re focusing on the Walkinshaw Andretti United team running as Mobil 1 MEGA Racing.
Despite losing factory backing from Holden as the official works team at the end of 2016, the Melbourne-based team still has huge support and a very strong and loyal fan base.
So what do you get if you join up as a member of the team that runs James Courtney and Scott Pye in its pair of ZB Commodores?
The team’s WAU Army membership programme has three tiers – gold, silver and bronze with something for everyone.
Gold membership is $100 and includes a member’s lanyard, bumper sticker, member lapel pin, membership card, exclusive t-shirt and cap (not available for retail purchase), access to member Facebook page and member portal, one pit tour and access to member competitions.
Silver membership is $60 and includes the lanyard, sticker, lapel pin, member card and t-shirt, access to member Facebook page and member portal and access to member competitions.
Bronze membership is $25 and includes lanyard, sticker, lapel pin, membership card, access to member Facebook page and member portal and access to member competitions.
