WOW SIGHT & SOUND JOINS TEAM AUSTRALIA

Team Australia is pleased to announce that WOW Sight & Sound is the latest Australian company to join the operation's sponsorship portfolio, with the electronics retailer backing the green and gold Aussie Vineyards Champ Cars of Will Power and Alex Tagliani for the remainder of the 2006 Champ Car World Series.

WOW Sight & Sound will adorn the cars for this weekend's Lexmark Indy 300 on the Gold Coast and the season finale in Mexico City, Mexico. WOW Sight & Sound is also a sponsor of Team Australia Co-Owner Craig Gore's WPS Racing operation in the Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series.

WOW Sight & Sound is a Queensland-based electronics retailer that currently boasts eight superstores with a further four planned to open by December 2006. Over the past two years the company has made its mark on the electronics and entertainment industry, just as Team Australia has emerged over the past two years in the Champ Car World Series.

WOW Sight & Sound currently has seven stores open in Queensland with a further store in Darwin, Northern Territory. Plans are well advanced to continue the roll out across Australia as well as across the Tasman Sea into New Zealand.

"WOW Sight & Sound is a local company in the process of opening new stores and expanding its business," said Team Australia Co-Owner and Queensland businessman Craig Gore.

"WOW is a sponsor of our V8 Supercar operation and it's great to now have them as part of Team Australia.

"WOW is proudly Australian, proud to be a part of the Team Australia program and motivated to be a part of our success.

"It's great to welcome them to Team Australia and have them on our Aussie Vineyards Champ Cars starting at our biggest event of the year at the Lexmark Indy 300 and also at the season finale in Mexico City."

WOW Sight & Sound superstores carry a wide range of home entertainment, home office, car audio, mobile phone and communications products. WOW Sight & Sound prides itself on setting the benchmark for the industry by offering a greater selection of brands, product items (over 20,000 per store) and expert knowledge from a team of technically trained staff.

"WOW Sight & Sound is a new emerging force in the process of expanding nationally," said John Karabalis, National Advertising and Marketing Manager of WOW Sight & Sound Superstores Pty Ltd.

"Everyone at WOW is very excited to be a part of Team Australia and there are definite synergies between the two brands. Both the Team Australia Champ Cars and the WOW Sight & Sound Superstores have a definite 'WOW' factor.

"WOW Sight & Sound is working hard at enhancing its presence and business from a branding point of view and we see this relationship with Team Australia as a vital tool to assist us in the growth of the WOW brand.

"I look forward to working together with Craig Gore and everyone involved in the Team Australia program as we both grow and develop into the future. Everyone at WOW Sight & Sound will be cheering for Will Power and Alex Tagliani this weekend and in Mexico next month."

Team Australia welcomes WOW Sight & Sound to the Champ Car World Series as the exciting retailer joins other proud Australian brands such as Aussie Vineyards, Wright Patton Shakespeare Financial Group, Qantas, RM Williams, Fish Liquor, the Queensland Government and Tourism Australia as part of the Team Australia program.

Thanks to WOW Sight & Sound and WPS Racing race fans and customers of Australia's most exciting electronics and entertainment superstores will have the opportunity to win a 2006 5.7-litre Chrysler 300C valued at $64,008.00.

The award-winning Chrsyler 300C first came to Australian shores in 2005 and has been turning heads wherever they are seen, including the V8 Supercar Championship, where the vehicle has been chosen as the official Safety Car for the series.

Entry to the fantastic competition is open to all customers of the eight WOW Sight & Sound stores across Queensland and the Northern Territory eligible to enter.

Patrons at the Lexmark Indy 300 also have the opportunity to be in the running for the great prize with anyone who visits the WPS Racing or WOW Sight & Sound stands at the event able to enter the competition.

Entry to the competition is open until November 30, 2006 with the draw taking place on December 8, 2006. The winning prize includes a Chrysler 300C, 5.7L, Hemi V8, including stamp duty, registration, third party insurance and dealer delivery costs. The prize is not redeemable for cash.
