Comparing The Cost


The cost of advertising your company, within our sport is comparatively low when compared with other forms of trade and general press advertising.

Competing at all the major national and world super bike events means that the we are watched by many tens of thousands of spectators through the year. At the TT alone the trackside figures are upwards of 100,000 people.

 As a team which competes at the front of the grid, your logo will be noticed.

In order to get this type of exposure in other fields the cost are as follows:-

For example, on a national basis, one days full page  advertisement in the following newspapers would be in excess of: - 


 The Daily Telegraph                  £27,000        

 The Daily Express                       £23,000     

 The Daily Mail                           £20,000    

 The Times                                 £15,000

 The Guardian                           £14,000      


             As you can see, your Company name and logo could be associated with a high profile sport, for a fraction of the cost of other forms or advertising. Thus raising your companies profile and enjoying the benefits of the motorsport  events along the way.
