Why Join Our Team?

Rallying offers an ideal opportunity to promote your product or company, or even completely revamp your current profile. Take Subaru as a case study. Before 1990, Subaru were seen as a competent carmaker producing 4wd cars popular with farmers. After a decade in rallying, Sabaru is now a highly desirable brand associated with winning and success.

Associating your company with a rally team creates awareness, regardless of the rally results. However, supporting a winning rally team takes you to the next level, helping to position you or your product as 'industry leading'. When strong performances by a team carrying your brand are seen on national TV, this has the added bonus of creating pride and motivation for your employees!

2004 is mooted as the year when the profile of rallying will finally approach that of Formula 1, with high levels of TV
coverage and marketing by a specially created promotional organisation - exactly what you would expect to justify the

investment by the major motor manufacturers.

Make sure you are part of this exciting opportunity!

Outlined below are the wide-ranging ways that our team can promote your corporate ID:


Due to the high-speed thrills generated by the best drivers in the world, rallying has long been a popular TV sport, with an audience of over a million fans in the UK. Jonnie is no stranger to the TV cameras, and recent TV footage has included primetime mid-morning TV coverage on Channel 4, including regular shots of the KA in action and many interviews with Jonnie himself.

With Ford Rallye Sport backing the team's championship aspirations with the loan of the Puma for the season, TV coverage will be assured for the stunning Ford Puma, running at the head of the field.

Local Radio & Newspapers

Jonnie is well known in his native Oxfordshire for his rallying exploits, and the team will work extensively with local radio and newspapers to promote the team's achievements throughout the 2004 season. Recognised stations such as Channel 4, Sky Sports will be targeted, along with national and local newspapers.

Electronic Media

Rallying has a strong Internet presence, and with over 500 hits a month on banzaievents.com where you can catch up with reports on how each event has progressed as well as promoting team sponsors, the site will keep the team's many fans up to date on progress. Aside from banzaievents.com, the teams media information is distributed to all relevant motorsport website's such as www.britishrally.co.uk.

Team Branding

Not only will your corporate ID be displayed on one of the most eye catching and desirable models of rally car around at the moment, you can also benefit from displaying your logos on a wide range of team apparel.

From team jackets to team shirts, space is allocated to all sponsors. With the team being one of the most presentable and well organised in rallying, this professional image can only reflect postively on our partners.

On-Event Corporate Hospitality

With Jonnie driving one of the most sought after cars available on the rally scene at the moment, you can be assured that the opportunity to join up with the team for one of its rallies is one not to be missed.

Aside from visiting the rally, you and your guests can be given a VIP insight into how the team operates in the heat of the action.

With your own 'Tour Guide' at your service, you can experience the unique excitement and atmosphere that only the British Rally Championship events can give.

The team is also able to run corporate days where you and your guests can experience the ride of a lifetime alongside Jonnie in the Ford Escort Rally cars at amazing prices or even free depending on financial involvement.

Getting Involved

Rallying is an expensive sport, but the costs involved are not as high as some think. You can sponsor the team in any number of ways.

For instance, you could become 'Fuel Sponsor', ensuring the team's vehicles are financially covered for the journey to and from a rally.

Perhaps you would prefer to sponsor the 'Team' itself, and cover accommodation, meals etc?

If your company is more mechanically related, then perhaps you can supply an on event service or promotional item to jointly promote our efforts!

The list is endless!

What's the Cost?

Your contribution can be large or small, and we treat all sponsors with the same degree of importance, as we aim to give you the maximum reward for pledging your financial support to our team.

Whatever you're marketing budget for 2004, then please seriously consider our proposal and the benefits contained therein.

We are a dedicated team that is serious about winning!

With your support, we can provide the desire and determination to make our championship aspirations bear fruit, and your company can enjoy the kudos of being associated with a winning team, both on and off the rally stages.

Lastly, what ever your controibution, we are in a unique position to offer you the same value in corporate hospitality either for staff training or just to thank your valued clients for their custom.

Thank you for your valuable time in reading our proposal, and if you would like to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact ourselves.
