Question About sponsors

Okay so this is a question geared more towards the people that have sponsors and that are sponsor themselves..

so im getting into the racing addiction and its costly... now im not good enough right by any means BUT
i used to Fight BJJ and had several sponsors and they would most likely be willing to sponsor me for this as well.. my question is how do you go about this "sponsoring" in BJJ they would pay for hotels and tournaments entry etc, etc... i just had to wear the GI's provided by them... how does it go with the motorcycle world how can i SELL myself sorta speak...

any feedback will be greatly appreciated...

IMO,
anyone sponsoring from outside of the industry would be a "feel good" type of sponsorship and could encompass any of the costs for racing, including supporting the CMRA as a class/race sponsor

and rider costs such as; bike, entry fee, transportation, hotels, food, pit crew, gas, food, gear, ...

EX, someone who uses product exposure

Nick, many of cmra guys (and girls) start off by putting a race resume together. You can then send this off to companies you're interested in, and ask for their support. Sheila Paul does a good job putting together resumes (don't have get contact info but I'm sure someone will chime in with it). The people that I know who used her, are happy with her work. Sometimes it's just as easy as asking if they offer any racer support (they might ask fir a copy of your race license). This hobby is expensive, and any little bit helps. a little off a set of tires, or buying parts at dealer cost.

I'm happy being 'sponsored' by my friends, and those that I support

Race results showing that you are better than the rest help.Once you have participated in some races which is an altogether different level than trackday speed & are in the usually in the top 5 depending on grid size,you can receive contingency certificates/money from your listed sponsors on stuff you actually use; ie tires,fuel,etc.All of which help defer the costs,but getting things like hotel & meals etc paid is not really found at the club (CMRA) level.Get your license & do a few races & you will be hooked,you won't care who is paying just as long as you can be on the grid waiting for the flag to drop !

Good Luck with the sponsor thing. I'll tell you first hand that unless you have a known name, your going to have trouble.... I've taken podiums and multiple top 5 finishes in WERA national and AFM and still had trouble finding people to sponsor me...

Put together a good race resume and try as hard as you can to sell yourself....

Good Luck...
