I’ve been racing for 14 years and am also a race marshal, so for 2019 together with my Boyfriend Andy (plus support) we are preparing 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.
I intend to be able to offer a hot drink and a snack and hopefully a giveaway or two to any marshal that visits 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.
This feature will also be 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 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.
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..
I’ve asked businesses and suppliers to offer something for the Orange Family… :)
A hot/cold drink, maybe a snack, plus any donated merchandise which marshals can collect either at sign on
(depending on availability) or from my pitpit garage.
With the full backing of the BMMC - we proudly present: the Marshal Support Race Car
I've created a unique BMMC "Peekaboo" supporters sticker for purchase by racers and supporters alike. I'd like all Racers with me to show their support to marshals trackside by adding this to their tailgates.
If a marshal purchases a sticker it will also enter them into the Prize Draws, All season - all prizes are donated by supporters. 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.
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 only, or if there is surplus, the items will be added the a 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.
