Introduction  |  Race Sponsorship  |  Race Entertainment

Sponsoring a race is easier than you think! Whether you have €2,000 or €20,000 to spend, there’s a race for you! You don’t have to sponsor the total value of the race- you give a fraction of that cost. But yours is the only name in the race title!

What do I get for my money?

  • Private deluxe suites for your VIP guests.
  • Free race cards
  • Free reserved car parking
  • Lots of free tickets
  • Advertising opportunities in the race cards
  • Your company name on signs around the track
  • Promotional opportunities
  • Media coverage
(*Catering, drinks, and trophies are usually negotiated for a competitive extra fee.)
