    Hey guys!!

    I put a post in make money section about this but was that wrong place..

    Basically I thought BHW would be the best place to do this after 2years of contacting companies.

    In 2008-2010 I had been racing British Formula Ford with a private sponsor (a money trader) He unfortunatley lost a lot of money very quickly and had to back out. I have been looking for sponsors in the UK but with the climate at the moment its very hard. I was racing against people like Damon Hills son and I was very competative even with one of the smallest budgets! 99% of the people who race have rich families and get the backing through them.. But i need to go about this a different way as I need to get my career back on track.

    British Formula Ford is televised over the uk and europe (channel 4)(motors tv) (espn). I feel there must be someone on here who can come up with a great way for me to raise this cash.. There is a lot of people who watch this program and attend the events which gives huge potential for people to promote/push products or approach a huge amount of people over a year.

    The 2011 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship will be televised on Motors TV across Europe and on Channel 4 in the UK. Each round is typically broadcast four times. Average viewing figures for each showing are declared as 60,000 people. Across the course of the year, this results in very significant viewing figures. Once shown on UK channels, this coverage is then syndicated around the world via International Motorsports News, which is broadcast on ESPN Star Sports TV.

    There is also a DTM round in the season which attracts thousands upon thousands of people. Not even mentioning the world Formula Ford Festival at the end of the year.

    I really hope some of you guys/girls can come up with some good ideas on running a huge marketing campaign. I put this post on as I have literally tried everything to get this cash in in the UK but its hard.

    ANY ideas are so much appreciated

    Thanks

    Josh Benson
