November 9, 2013 To whom it may concern: We have had the absolute pleasure of working with Darren Morgan and DMR Racing in the course of making our television series, Upper Middle Bogan. The success of the show, which has been substantial, would not have been possible without the contribution of Darren and his team. DMR Racing provided the Top Fuel Dragsters used in the series, which rendered a production value and an authenticity that Producers dream about. Moreover, Darren gave willingly of his own skill and expertise, imparting a generous insight into what it is to be the Australian champion in his field. As a racing car driver, Darren is passionate, committed and diligent, and has the unique unflappability that distinguishes a champion. He is greatly respected by his team and colleagues and sport. This is due, in no small part, to the fact that although Darren proudly holds the Australian Top Fuel Champion title, he continues to be kind, anchored and unassuming. collaboration for the show and remained instrumental in guiding the process through to production. The Morgan family welcomed us warmly into their world and we feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to be inducted into the Top Fuel sport by, not only the best, but also, the nicest people in the business. We unreservedly recommend Darren Morgan and DMR racing. PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY Yours Sincerely DARREN MORGAN RACING Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope PAGE 21

  20. 20. Top Fuel Dragsters are the fastest accelerating vehicles in the world. These are the most recognisable of all drag cars. The 25-foot-long landlocked missiles can cover the quarter mile in 4.4 seconds at up to 540 kilometres per hour. DMR uses a 4130 chrome moly chassis constructed by Brad Hadman in the USA. It weighs a tiny 1000kg which makes for a massive power to weight ratio. All of the body components are constructed from carbon fibre and titanium. The total finished cost of the dragster is estimated at $500,000!
  21. 21. The sound and fury of 8000 horsepower launching at 5G’s of acceleration literally shakes the bones of the fans in the grandstand. At the finish line 4.5 seconds later, the challenge of two 10 metre long Top Fuel dragsters bending against down force in a struggle to keep all four wheels on the ground at over 500 kilometres per hour is unforgettable. Off the track, ANDRA Championship Drag Racing offers another spectacle. All access pit areas where spectators can meet Darren and watch him and their crew work frantically between rounds. No other sport on earth brings their fans closer. ANDRA Championship Drag Racing is the ultimate spectator environment which builds life long fans and life long customers with strong loyalty. DMR understands the value of spectator satisfaction.

  28. 28. Morgan and his team are more than simply a group of racers who have got together to run a car for kicks - the preparation of a Top Fuel Dragster demands military like precision and maintenance. Each team member has his own area of expertise but all are talented enough to assist each other should the need arise. This crew has proven it is a Championship winning combination and under Darren’s guidance there are no qualms about entering the new season with a fresh outlook.

  30. 30. Appe ndix B July 11, 2012 RE: The Darren Morgan Racing (DMR) This letter may sounds like an endorsement of Darren Morgan, because it really is just that. Darren Morgan and his team are amongst the most professional and well run in the ANDRA Championship and Darren Morgan Racing is very much an asset of our sport. As the Chief Executive Officer of ANDRA, I spend a lot of time with the constituency at events as well as liaison with the teams and racers between events, so I am in a great position to evaluate the relative commercial and sporting achievements of the sport’s stakeholders and Darren and his team are very much a leader both on and off the track. Darren and his team members have been exemplary in providing professional feedback and constructive criticism on how our Pro Series Championships could improve. This is not the team’s charter but rather a wonderful example of going ‘above and beyond’ in for the greater good. The logistics for a team competes at all ANDRA Pro Series Championship events are significant and DMR always presents a professional and polished show. Darren’s Top Fuel Dragster, his pit set up, hospitality area and his dedicated crew actually set the standard nationally! PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY Darren, who is the current reigning National Champion, has just taken out the Adelaide International Raceway (AIR) Pro Series 1000 Event by defeating a field of world class and well financed competitors. Darren also won the AIR Award for best team presentation! Apart from the racing side, Darren is heavily involved in the management area of the sport and is always available to offer racer advice to both my Board and myself. To this end, Darren always makes himself available to ANDRA Sponsors, VIP’s and the general public at all race meetings. ANDRA is currently creating a National Series Advisory Panel, which will assist the Board in shaping the future of our sport; Darren will be playing an integral role in this initiative, as he is our Top Fuel Ambassador. Should you require further information on both Darren and DMR, then please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned.

DMR enjoys the support of the people of Mildura as well as strong support from many business houses and institutions in our region. Darren has been able to build an amazing team of people that have succeeded beyond expectations given their low budget in a very high expense sport. DMR has shown what can be achieved through community support and the ingenuity of local trades people when given the opportunity to prove themselves. Darren has been able to teach, train, guide, mentor and lead his team of young mechanics and support crew to win the ultimate racing prize in Australian Drag Racing two years in a row; an amazing achievement in a very tough sport. DMR are always willing to assist in community functions, fundraisers and other community events. They also manage to draw huge crowds wherever they go, particularly when the car is “fired” up. I have no hesitation in offering my support for them as a reliable, honest and hard working team that are a credit to the Mildura Region.

  34. 34. Appe ndix D 11th July 2012 To whom it may concern, Darren Morgan and the Darren Morgan Racing Team have been associated with the AEG Powertool brand for 5 years and myself personally through another brand relationship with Chicago Pneumatic since 2004. AEG & DMR have been a fantastic commercial relationship in motorsport that delivered our brand to a very targeted shared demographic. Top Fuel racing is the fastest and most powerful motorsport on the planet. It’s highly technical nature aligned with our brand values and using this as the vehicle, allowed us to easily create a connection through the sponsorship that AEG was Powertools. This cut across all facets and built our credibility. The partnership, along with Darren and his team carrying the bright orange of AEG Powertools right throughout the racing program really allowed us to create recognition among motorsport fans and the industry alike. Darren being a great, down-to-earth personality appeals across the board & made it an easy fit for AEG Powertools. From a corporate entertainment point of view, Top Fuel is without doubt one of the most interactive experiences we have been able to provide staff, customers and end users. The partnership with DMR has ensured we could deliver more than just a standard corporate box affair like many other sports and motorsports. PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY Darren and his team are by far the best presented and well drilled team in Australian drag racing. They have always strived no matter what to go the extra mile for AEG Powertools, quite often at considerable expense over and above our sponsorship contribution. Not only are they incredibly active in the media space, the innovations the team has implemented on our behalf has allowed AEG Powertools to build strong databases and really understand the segmentation of fans that are attending the events. This from data gathering stations at each event which is coupled with prize giveaways, to the launch of the world’s first fully operational Top Fuel Simulator are all concepts that Darren has developed and brought to the table as value adds to our partnership. The team at DMR are the best in the game in Australia if not the world and I would have no hesitation in recommending them or the sport of Top Fuel racing if you are looking to build a brand presence with corporate entertainment in a powerful, technical setting with a wide-ranging, brand loyal audience.

I would recommend anyone looking to expose their business to the Australian Drag Racing Public get on board and sponsor Darren and his team they will do your company proud, and you will reap the rewards your product doesn’t need to be racing or car related as there is a huge diversity of interests with Racing Fans, and it is a family sport.” Jon Van Daal, Advertising Sales Manager, Express Publications August 2, 2012 “I’ve known Darren for over ten years - firstly when he drove for the Lammatina Top Fuel team and then with his own team. I’ve dealt with a number of Top Fuel teams over the last thirty years either assisting with sponorship or simply just supplying photos for their use. You don’t need to be Solomon to realise that the last four years of the GFC have been incredibly tough on both sponsors and race teams but after leaving the Lammatina team Darren has enjoyed the support of major Australian companies (or their local office) because he continues to provide results. He would be the first to admit that he would love to have the dollars that his opponents enjoy - just to go testing or to upgrade equipment, however he doesn’t but he still produces one thing - the number 1 on the side of his car. From what I have seen his dedication to the sport (and his ROI) runs 31 days a month (even when there aren’t 31 days in the month). Static displays and his ability to constantly drum up media opportunities mean that he is in my eyes “a sure bet”. In these tough times it is hard to find such talented and commitment athletes that can give sponsors more than invoices but Darren is the man.” Mark Boxer, Owner, HoonTV August 2, 2012 “It’s been a pleasure working with Darren shooting for the ANDRA TV under the direction of Dean Neal. Darren is always accommodating and doesn’t mind giving the viewers what they like to see, especially a big smile. Another reason I really loved my first year working with the team to shoot these shows.” Peter Pike, Drag Racing Manager, Perth Motorplex August 2, 2012 “Darren Morgan and his Australian Top Fuel Drag Racing team are not only 3 times Australian Champions but are wonderful DARREN MORGAN RACING PAGE 60

Darren is fiercely passionate, extremely motivated, and highly successful and most importantly for our business very popular with West Australian Drag Racing fans. Peter Pike Drag Racing Manager Perth Motorplex, Western Australia” Justin Law, Editor, Sub-editor, art-director, journalist, Australian Consolidated Press August 30, 2012 “I interviewed Darren Morgan for a feature story that appeared in Street Machine magazine in 2011 - “Captain Sensible”. Not only was Darren approachable and generous with his time, but he was candid and engaging. This demonstrates he is naturally media savvy. In my 25 years of journalism and communications, there are few leaders in their industry who left as lasting a mark on me as he did. What he achieved and the way he has achieved it - empowering the people around him to strive to be their best - is an example I still refer to. In a business that can sometimes attract the unscrupulous, I believe Darren sets a high mark, and would be an asset to any marketer or sponsor.” PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY John Baremans, Production Editor, Dragster Australia and Inside Speedway magazines September 10, 2012 “I have admired Darren’s passion and strength in getting things done for as long as I have known him. He works very hard and does not stop until he achieves what he set out to do. Darren is a great ambassador to the sport of drag racing and he provides plenty of bang for his current sponsors. He knows how to get results both on and off the track.” Steve Menegaldo, Director at Groovy Tube Digital Media October 9, 2012 “Darren Morgan and his highly proficient top fuel team are the back-to-back number 1 Australia Top Fuel Team for a reason. Groovy Tube Digital Media have had the chance to work with Darren Morgan on more than a few occasions and every time it has been an absolute pleasure, Darren, Natalie and the team are true professionals both on and off the track working tirelessly every season to prepare and participate in this high-octane sport. Darren and the team also travel around the country regularly to appear at various events, corporate days, Car Shows, V8 Supercars and many more. Darren goes the extra mile for sponsors and fans; he brings the excitement of Top Fuel sport to his fans by appearing at these events, signing autographs and having his picture taken with his fans. Corporate sponsors receive the wow factor too with personal appearances and Top Fuel Car start-ups at their own events. Darren is what you would call the people’s champion, he and the team have won the Australian championships 3 times now and all without consistent major corporate backing. It’s a true testament to their perseverance and passion for the sport and its fans. So what are you waiting for, get involved with the fastest motor sport on the planet, with the quickest team in the country and reap the rewards, Darren Morgan Racing is the perfect sponsorship opportunity for your company.” Brenton Edwards, Business Development Manager at Darren Morgan Racing “Darren is at the pinnacle of his sport - with the most dedicated and organised team - he seeks perfection and works tirelessly toward advancing his top line motorsport operation the sponsor’s and fan’s love him with his personable straight-up Aussie bloke persona.” DARREN MORGAN RACING PAGE 61
