Ultimate Bucket List Experience Bathurst 1000



Experience the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 with Australian Sports Marketing

The Ultimate Bucket List Experience

It happens every year in October. If you sit quietly and listen carefully you can hear it calling, Mt Panorama softly beckons. When that special Sunday arrives, the rush of emotion pulsates through every person who has made the pilgrimage. As the normally sleepy track rumbles into life and the Supercars roll out on the grid, you can feel the adrenaline start to pump through your body.


It’s an experience you will never forget. It’s the greatest race on earth.


The Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

Australian Sports Marketing’s (ASM) Corporate Suites offer the best seats at the track and the finest and most thrilling way to watch the race.

ASM offers exclusive VIP ticketing, accommodation, and travel packages at the Bathurst 1000 that include:

  • Suites that are located directly above the Supercars team garages and offer the best vantage point on the track.
  • A private balcony overlooking pit lane and the main straight.
  • A pre-race grid walk or your photo taken on the podium.
  • Driver visits, interviews, and guided Supercars Team garage tours.
  • A once in a lifetime course car ride around Mt Panorama.
  • Packages that start at just $350 per person.


But don’t just take our word for it, long-time Supercars supporter Russell Botha and his wife have travelled to the mountain for the great race for most of their lives, and have been enjoying the race with ASM for nearly ten years. They wouldn’t watch Bathurst any other way.


How long have you been attending the Bathurst 1000 with ASM?

“My wife and I have been booking corporate hospitality packages with ASM for about seven or eight years. We love the passion of the ASM people – Chris, Georgia, and his team live and breathe motorsport experiences. The suites are always comfortable, and we feel part of the ASM family.”


Have you used ASM’s travel services?

“We’ve used a number of ASM’s accommodation and travel services as they offer tailored solutions that suit your needs. There are set packages, but you can go to ASM and say “I want this”, and they will customise your package. That flexibility is important because everyone is different.”


Why is the Bathurst 1000 such an important event?

“For us, Bathurst is like the grand final. It’s an emotional event, and that stems right back to the Brocky days. The event brings out real emotion for my wife and me, and I get the tingles now thinking about it.”


Tell us about ASM’s Corporate Suites at Bathurst

“ASM has the premier lounge at Bathurst, and it’s directly above the Supercar team garages. There is no doubting it’s that best real estate at the track, and it’s located right on pit exit which is the perfect spot to watch the race.”


What do you like most about ASM’s Corporate Suites at Bathurst?

“ASM offers more than just a corporate suite, it’s an overall Supercar team experience and to do this at the biggest and best race of the year is very special. I like how the suite is decked out, and of course, you get to interact with the drivers and team management who visit.


Every day in the suite is different, ASM mixes it up, and you don’t always get the same thing. There are prizes and giveaways, and the staff spend time with you throughout the day, so it’s a friendly environment where you are actually hosted.”


Who else uses ASM Services?

“Nissan Motorsport, Erebus Motorsport, Preston Hire Racing, team partners, and sponsors all use ASM to supply and host their corporate suites. We really enjoy the benefits that are provided by way of that association.”

ASM Corporate Incentive Programs: Six Things You Need to Know



PICTURE THIS:  A nine-day tour of a lifetime travelling to Dubai, New York, and the prestigious Indy 500.  Private limousine transfers and business-class flights, accommodation at the seven-star Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Dubai, corporate hospitality at one of the biggest motorsport races in the world, and dinner at the Big Apple’s hottest restaurant, Buddakan.  


If that isn’t enough, what about cruising the Dubai shoreline on a plush yacht, a breathtaking helicopter flight over New York City, or a police escort to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway?


It’s called the Ultimate Bucket List trip.  This ‘celebrity style’ experience is an upcoming corporate incentive program for one of Australia’s leading automotive groups, and every luxurious detail has been meticulously planned by the team at Australian Sports Marketing (ASM). Sixteen lucky winners from dealerships all across Australia earned this privilege and will indulge in this unique experience.


ASM’s corporate incentive programs are a fantastic way to reward company personnel and increase team moral, from junior to executive level. If you’re considering rewarding your staff with one of our exclusive incentive programs, here are six things you need to know:


1: Corporate incentive programs work

A reward designed by the team at ASM will help your company achieve its business targets and goals. Corporate incentive programs work, and our client’s return continually outweighs their investment.  The greater the reward, the bigger the achievements.


2: We’re highly experienced

ASM has been specialising in SPORTS, EVENTS, and TRAVEL for more than 20 years and we are an industry leader in providing premium corporate tour packages in Australia and around the world. 


3: You don’t need a big budget

While a nine-day tour that includes tickets to the hottest events and dinners at the finest restaurants are a great incentive for your executive level staff, you may be looking for a more affordable option. We can build a package to suit any budget or timeframe, starting from as little as $900 per person for a two-day activity. 


4: You can travel to any event or location on the planet

ASM team has big ideas and can take you to amazing destinations, but if you have an event or tour in mind, we can make it a reality.  We individually tailor incentive programs for our clients.   So, if you love motorsport, perhaps a corporate incentive program that includes the Singapore or Monaco F1 is up your alley.  Maybe a star-studded local event like the Melbourne Cup is more your style. Either way, we’ll create the perfect reward for your staff.


5: We do all the work for you

Organising events and travel can be stressful and time-consuming, where do you begin booking event tickets (especially for a large group), arranging flights and transfers, and putting together the itinerary?


We take care of every painstaking detail and will even organise the things you haven’t thought of, including apparel, photography, and momentums.  An ASM team member will also travel with your group – think of us as your personal tour guide.  The only thing you need to worry about is choosing who gets to go.    


6: We love giving away awards

What’s a Best on Ground” award?  This special award (complete with a trophy) is chosen and presented by your ASM tour guide to an outstanding individual on the trip, and to add to the fun there’s no set judging criteria. 

Why not reward someone with an ASM Ultimate Experience Gift Card <link to>, gifts start from $250.
