Carsales.com.au celebrates its 20th birthday with ‘the best re-gift ever,’ giving two of its customers a chance to win a trip to Texas and meet Australian F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo during the United States FormulaTM1 Grand Prix.
Even though meeting Ricciardo at the Grand Prix in Austin is on the Carsales' team's wish list, they can't go on the all-expenses paid trip; they are so busy assisting consumers buy and sell cars, so they’re re-gifting it to two lucky customers who each get the chance to bring along a buddy.
The Grand Prix package, which will run until September 8th, is valued at around $44,000 can be entered via the Carsales site. In addition, there is another $25,000 worth of prizes up for grabs including ten $1,000 gift cards, 200 $20 gift cards and a stack of Red Bull Racing caps.
Ricciardo was named as carsales’ global brand ambassador in February 2017 and has been helping inspire car buyers and sellers through his own personal love of driving ever since.
“When we launched in 1997, there were 500 cars on the site. carsales has grown 43900% over the past 20 years – in 2017 we have approximately 220,000 cars available at any given time,” said Carsales.com.au chief marketing officer Kellie Cordner.
Over the past 20 years carsales’ service offering has evolved to include editorial features, unique valuation and identification data, as well as adjacent products and services such as finance and warranty.
