PMA Media, the production company who covered the Shell Optimax F1 Drivers’ Challenge, is holding a karting competition of it’s own, the K1 Cup.
It’s a televised karting championship starting May 2007 where companies put forward teams of four drivers and a team manager, and they race for charity and to promote their business. The promotion opportunities are amazing, with European-wide TV coverage.
Each team chooses a charity to support and there will be celebrity endorsement for each team, and special celebrity races.
Now, here’s the thing. I’d love to take part, but I don’t have a team to drive for. All the marketing is taken care of by the promoters, even the race-wear and helmets will be branded with the team’s name. The entry fee is £24,995 + VAT, plus a charitable donation of £10,000.
So, if you’re a company (or you know a company) that might like to take part, and take me on as a driver, please leave me a comment (which won’t be posted here), and I’ll get back to you.
