In a blatant exercise of Ambush Marketing, TAC set up mobile signs in the main street of Cranbourne on Saturday morning at the MRA Cranbourne Oz GP Run start. The area where the sign was located was set aside as a "motorcycle parking only" area, and the vehicle needed to be moved before 8am. Despite many calls over the PA for the vehicle driver to come and remove the vehicle - nobody showed up. As a result, riders took the matter into their own hands, and covered the signs in disgust. Needless to say, riders weren't impressed, as you can see from this Youtube clip: [media=youtube]vX27IJ15u0M[/media] It appears that the TAC doesn't believe in following the proper protocols and contacting MRA or City of Casey, but rather just assume that it is their right to interfere in an event that they have made no contribution to. The lack of respect for riders and the inept communication skills shown by the TAC do not help. This type of arrogance only alienates those people who the messages are aimed at. As a matter of interest I suggested to TAC last year that they get involved with the Oz GP Ride - rather than become involved on a co-operative basis they chose to bypass both the City of Casey and the MRA with the result being less than impressive for them.
