Sponsorship and Our Lovely Sponsors/Collaborations
To start any successful F1 team (F1 in Schools or Life-Size), you need sponsorship!
Sponsorship can be anything from:
- Donated Money
- Shared Experiences with other engineers/companies
- Donated Materials
- Help with manufacturing the Car
In total, we raised £1,000 of sponsorship money, use of CFD facilities and many more from numerous sponsors. We hope to increase our sponsorship funds by negotiating with other businesses willing to donate. We are free to any negotiations, so if you have any inquiries about sponsorship, contact BCS Racing.
At BCS Racing, we have different sponsorship packages available for businesses willing to sponsor us. Each sponsorship package entitles your business to many different privileges.
We have also decided that all sponsors (excluding Bronze) will be given a sponsor decal on the car (which varies on size and location due to the amount of money/help donated).
Below is a list of our packages;
- BRONZE PACKAGING - Active Link to your website located on BCS Racing web-page, Logo on Portfolio and Website - £50-100
