I’ve been racing for 14 years and am also a race marshal, so for 2019 together with my Boyfriend Andy (plus support) we created our race car to be a Marshal Supporter car. With the backing of the BMMC (British Motorsport Marshals Club) it has an orange colour scheme, with BMMC logos and characters adorning the car, including the seat, thanks to Corbeau, and with thanks already to BestWorkWear, our team clothing is too.
Throughout 2019 we offered a hot drink and a snack plus a giveaway or two to any marshal that visited us in the paddock (or at sign on in the morning, depending on quantities). Some companies have already offered to have a look through their stock of marketing material, or produce, to give away to the marshals.
To publicise the kind donations, the BMMC (Marshals.co.uk) have arranged a website feature page for the marshals to connect with, along with a direct email which will be sent to the marshalling region of each race circuit.
We have also been featuring on Facebook to encourage the ‘like and share’ feature for additional advertising, which could feature your company promotion if you wish. If you wish to take part, either regionally per race,or for the whole season, I would greatly appreciate you contacting me to send your merchandise donation, in return I will promote you as a supporter with your logo and any promotional activity on offer, along with your Facebook page link if you wish.
We are continuing this scheme for 2020 - CAN YOU HELP!? we need donations of snacks/drinks and multiple goodies plus donated prizes for the Marshal Prize Draw. If you can help, please get in touch urgently using the contact form below.
Knowing, first hand, that marshals can sometimes get a bit forgotten.. #buyyourownbreakfast
I’ve come up with what I believe is a unique idea..
Instead of a sponsorship livery…. I’m a rolling billboard advertising marshals..
We are asking businesses and suppliers to offer something for the Orange Family… :)
A hot/cold drink, maybe a snack, any donated merchandise which marshals can collect either at sign on
(depending on availability) or from my paddock garage and a selection of higher value items to put into the marshals Prize Draw.
With the full backing of the BMMC - we proudly present: the Marshal Support Race Car
We've created a unique BMMC supporters sticker for purchase by racers and supporters alike. I'd like all Racers to show their support to Marshals trackside by adding this to their tailgates.
Peekaboo is the 2019 sticker.
If a marshal purchases a sticker it will also enter them into the Prize Draws, all season - to win items donated by supporters and other items. There will be a draw as often as we have merchandise to give away and the one sticker number enters the holder to ALL draws for the whole year!
Contact me for a sticker either here or at track. All monies earned from the purchase of stickers will go back into the project, covering costs of printing and postage or extra donations to the marshals.
and here he is.. "Bursting With Pride" we call him "Buster" is now available as the 2020 sticker.
If you have supported me already, or offered a ‘box of goodies’ to us you will find your company logo below as a supporter. After receipt of items, that logo can be linked to your website and should you be able to offer financial funding (?), you will be offered the opportunity for logos on the car, clothing and the team vehicles. The car body artwork design is a work in progress, as we await confirmation of potential sponsor decals requiring a key position. Any financial offers would be commensurate with the size of logo displayed.
This is my own idea and I am personally funding this project, including building the car and livery, plus any promotional activity, and although funding a race car is expensive, it is promised that all merchandising material that you are kind enough to donate will be handed to marshals, or if there is surplus, the items will be added to the prize draw, for marshals only. Financial offers towards logos and advertising will be used to fund the livery of the race car.
If you would like to join in with the support please use the contact us form above, we look forward to hearing from you.
