Sponsorships

So I've finally picked up my first official race sponsor.... Vortex Racing approved my Athlete Support request so it'll save me a bunch on parts and replacements that I need, want or (hopefully not) break this season lol....

There are a few vendors I'm going to approach this season, but I'll have to wait until the first race or two. Nice of them to give a deal to the casual/average club racer like myself.

This was the main turning point to totally upgrade/beef up my suspension for next year. I want personal improvement for myself, which would hopefully get a little more support for me in the long run.

Anyone know of any online sponsors/companies that are willing to sponsor the average club racer? Every little bit helps, but a huge thanks to Vortex Racing for this one (I've been holding off on parts until I received an answer).

Re: Sponsorships

racetech sponsored me....use hookit. It's really easy to apply for sponsorship, I got approved with braking, suomy helmets, racetech, spy glasses, amsoil, and a few others. I'm hopefully gonna get approved by woodcraft.

Re: Sponsorships

Yes, I'm a late starter... I just thought of this over the winter break after ordering a bunch of parts and thought it would be super helpful if I managed to get some.

Thanks for the hookit link, I'll give it a shot!

I've been meaning to sign up for hookit as well.

Question for you sponsored guys: I'm in my 3rd year of road racing (beginning this May), and my first two years were really spent getting over the learning curve. I wasn't competitive until last season and I don't have any race wins. My best finish in the club was 5th, and 2nd in a track day shootout for licensed racers. Is it even feasible for me to apply for sponsorships?
