Reasons to sponsor a racecar

Ritchie Racing offers a unique, low cost opportunity. Sponsoring a racecar is like buying a rolling billboard. In addition to spectators, competitors, and some television coverage, a racecar displaying your colors and logo is an excellent point-of-sale traffic generator as well as an employee morale booster.

Use car sponsorship as a repeating reminder of your commitment to excellence. Some manufacturers offer co-op advertising that may be available to your business for racecar sponsorship.

 

PERFORMANCE ON TRACK RESULTS IN EXPOSURE

Customers will buy from a winner.

When a racecars speed down the straightaway side by side, neither willing to surrender the advantage, and they dive into the first turn only inches apart, everyone watches, including your potential customers.

Your business is not as different from racing as you think. You have competitors, we have competitors, we both want to win.

Racecars are an accepted form of advertising potential customers often identify them by their sponsors more than by their number.

Auto racing is a fast growing sport. Customers who like racing are more likely to buy your product if they see it advertised on a racecar.
