How Does Raceday Sponsorship Work?

As a raceday sponsor your company or charity has the naming rights of all the races on that race meeting. In addition, a function may be held in conjunction with your raceday sponsorship.

The costs of the raceday may be shared by encouraging suppliers or supporters to sponsor an individual race on the day. Our Sales and Business Development Manager is available to discuss the best strategy based on your budget.

Is It Ok Just To Sponsor A Single Race For A Special Occasion?

Individual race sponsorship is an affordable and very popular option. Races are named after any ‘special occasion’, charity or a business.
Race names often mark significant events; these may include the celebration of birthdays, anniversaries, engagements and are also often used by families as memorial races to acknowledge a loved one’s life.
