Need info. on elite team sponsor proposalsHugh
May 21, 2001 5:28 PM
I am trying to find some good, solid info. on constructing contracts, drafts for proposals, budgets, etc. in constructing a cat. 1 team that is able to race the NRC. If anyone knows of any web pages, informative examples, or just plain old has any advice, a response would be greatly appreciated. We are trying to elevate a fast cat. 2 and 1 shop team to a sponsored road team that can travel...

I'm sorry to say it, but I really doubt anybody who knows anything is going to help you. Garnering sponsorship dollars is every bit as competitive as a top 3 spot at an NRC race. Most teams that I've been involved with look at it this way: Every dollar we help you get, is a dollar that we've lost. Every dollar that we lose is one less dollar to get us to races, and less chance that we are in a position to win races. The real problem is that of the chicken or the egg- sponsors want proven pro-level performers on the team. Proven performers want money up front. You can't get the money until you get the talent, but you can't get the talent without the money. It's a big, hard jump to take, not to mention an incredible amount of work. Good luck in trying to take a bite out of the ever shrinking pool of sponsorship $$$.
