Sponsorship Proposal
















                                     Why Motorsports?

 

The following pages will outline how Motorsports Marketing can work to Your Company's   advantage. 

The exposure generated in Open Wheel Racing is the best ‘bang for the buck’ in domestic Motorsports. Unlike most race events that may last for several hours, Open Wheel events capture huge crowds, which translate to more opportunities for small companies as well as large corporations to educate consumers about their business and products.

 

 

While you are reviewing this proposal outline keep in mind that DCS Motorsports is not a team of once a month "Weekend Warriors" who work on the race car under a shade tree.  Team owner, Duncan Stone has competed against and worked with some of the best Open Wheel racers in the United States.  DCS Motorsports is a team of professionals utilizing the best equipment which competes successfully in E.R.A and SMRA/ISMA clubs.

 

Most sponsorship proposals consist of the promise to win races, maybe be at a car show, or make an occasional public appearance on behalf of a sponsor. DCS Motorsports has developed a philosophy and mission to support our marketing partners, your company will receive all of the above, and much more. We also understand that you may receive many sponsorship proposals or out and out requests just to give money. We are confident that DCS Motorsports has more to offer a marketing partner than the former and we don't even consider the latter.

After reviewing the information in this package, you will agree that DCS Motorsports can produce and put into effect a well thought out marketing plan to reach the valued and profitable demographic which encompasses all Open Wheel racing fans.

Please take the time to look over our marketing outline, contact us and tell me what direction you want to take your company. Then as a team we will put together a custom marketing partnership plan to help your company meet its goals and smoke the competition, this is  DCS Motorsports Mission.

 

 

 

 

Benefits of Motorsports Marketing

 

 

CONSUMER FOLLOWING:  Racing can be a remarkably efficient way for a company to reach that segment of the population that is young, male, well educated and just beginning to accumulate the material things in life. But, when you look at the demographics it's also very noticeable that females are a large part (32%) of the Motorsports fan base. Depending on the product of course, a company would be hard pressed to overlook this group. The demographics do not differentiate between male and female except to note the percentages of each.

MANAGEABILITY:  Because the typical racing team participates in a series of events, a sponsor can work at utilizing their involvement with the team over a period of months, learning and adjusting the program as they go.

LOCALITY:  The high degree of visibility enjoyed by events in cities adjacent to the race track allows for all kinds of promotional tie-ins, especially those impacting on or for the company's retail constituents.

EXCITEMENT:  Especially for the non-consumer goods company, racing events provide an ideal backdrop for key account entertainment and/or internal public relations of sales promotion activity.

TRADE APPEAL:  An often overlooked phenomenon is racings ability to get a company dramatic exposure in its trade press, which reaches a critical target audience for them. 

WARMTH:  Racing, perhaps unique among professional sports, not only tolerates commercial involvement, it welcome's it with open arms. Open Wheel racing is also the only Motorsports event that allows the fan entry to the pit area. This allows the fan to get up close to their favorite team and driver during the event.
