There’s no question that motor racing on any level is a very expensive endeavor. When you reach the upper echelons like superbike racer Marcel Irnie, putting together a budget for a full racing season is a daunting task. For 2012, Marcel is planning to race the Pro class of the Canadian Superbike Championship, as well as a few rounds of the US AMA Pro Superbike series. Racing at this level will require a lot of sacrifice and most importantly sponsorship.
Irnie has entered a video in a sponsorship contest being held by Champion Spark Plug. Racers of virtually every motor racing discipline can submit a video and have the chance to win the grand prize of a $50000 sponsorship package or one of five $10000 consolation sponsorship packages. If you can take the time, please view Marcel’s video and then create a log-in and vote. Here is the link:
We have been working with Marcel for several years now and certainly recognize the hard work he has put in. He produces popular race videos and works hard to promote his sponsors. He would certainly be a worthy winner of this contest, were he lucky enough to be chosen. He is on the verge of a break-out season in the pro ranks, so this assistance would be helpful.
