Get Paid to Race is the ultimate guide to motorsport sponsorship. The industry has changed over the years and racing drivers need to really think about what they can offer a business beyond a sticker on a car.

I get messages almost daily with people lamenting about how they’ve tried searching for sponsorship but it’s just not working. Most drivers are willing to admit that they’re doing something wrong but a handful thinks everyone is to blame but them. Let me tell you this. It is you and you are doing something wrong. But that’s OK because you’re here and we’re going to fix it.
