being a fast and furious driver are the perfect words to describe you,
then you might consider looking for a go kart sponsor. If you’re
seriously considering this sport, then you’re going to have to do a bit
of sponsorship research before you start. While often done for fun,
competition can be stiff and spare parts can be expensive. Having
someone help you with the costs would take a big burden off your
shoulders. Here are just a couple ideas to help you get started.
1. Sponsorship contracts. Contact
companies that would be
willing to sponsor go kart drivers and approach them with a sponsorship
proposal. There are many racing sponsors out there, just look at Nascar.
Similar to the Nascar sponsors, a go kart sponsor would give you items
for free, such as spare parts,
or give you cash allowances in exchange for free press. You’d probably
have to put their logo on your uniform or go kart. You might also have
to mention your sponsors’ names during interviews. If you’re a
successful driver, you’ll probably be asked to pose for a couple photo
shoots with your sponsors’ merchandise.
2. Create your own website.
Go kart racing is a perfect niche for a website. Since start up
costs for a domain name are minimal, you’ll have little to lose and a
lot to gain. An added plus is that if you already have companies willing
to sponsor you, you could put up a small advert for their company on
your website. That would be part of your sponsorship agreement, or you
could see if they have an affiliate program that would allow you to earn
cash on a pay per click basis. There are also lots of other ways to earn
money off your website. Adsense has a free easy service that can earn
you some money. You can also write to companies and ask them if they
would pay you to do a product or service review.
3. Host an event. Chances are you have a favorite race track that you go
to and probably know many of the people there. Organizing an event can
be a good way to earn money in a short time. While you’ll have to come
up with the track rental fee, the owner might be willing to give you a
discount if they know you well enough. Either way, organizing an event
is a great way to get to meet many of the sponsors in person. You’ll
talk to the right people and be able to make some good contacts from
food and beverage sponsors to
kart sponsors, you’ll get to meet them all. So while it might take a
bit of planning, the results are well worth the effort.
