The VB tent's main business is selling beer. They are from the UK. They said they tried to use South Australian products and have had a stand at the Clipsal 500 before. They said it was the most important event in SA that they participate in. The VB tent usually employs 1500 people. 1000 of them are casual employees. It is very important to Australia economy.
