The inaugural 24 hour race for historic cars using the full Le Mans circuit will be taking place this September. It is being billed as the ultimate historic race meeting with an anticipated entry of over 300 cars that actually competed at Le Mans between 1923 and 1975.

John Clarke has entered his pre war Morgan 4-4 (Le Mans) car. The identical car gamely finished second in class after leading for much of the race in 1939. With its 1098cc engine, it is unlikely to win the overall race in 2002 but, like its namesake, is aiming to win its class and take the overall Index of Performance.

Having restored the car over the past three years, John is now looking to build a team of supporters and sponsors to recreate a little bit of history. The sponsorship package can be tailored to the needs of the individual but, uniquely, the sponsors will be taking an active part in the running of the team.

As a team member you could have exclusive access to the pits to watch the racing at close hand and to live and breathe the atmosphere of a 24 hour race. Dressed in specially designed race suits carrying your company logo, your role may involve anything from hanging out the pit board to making large strong cups of coffee! The car could carry the sponsors’ name and also may be included in the race programme.

It will not all be hard work though! You could be invited to the exclusive Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, stay in elegant accommodation and have an opportunity to mix with racing legends from the past. This really will be the unmissable historic car event of the year.

Sponsorship packages are available tailored to your requirements. These could include for example:

· Sponsors’ logo on the car
· Sponsors’ logo on team clothing
· Sponsor listed in the race programme
· Team named after sponsor
· Elegant accommodation for 2-3 nights
· Entry to Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony
· Pit and paddock access
· Catering during weekend
· Photographic record
· Car available for sponsors own promotional events
· Press releases pre and post event carrying sponsors name
· Opportunity for sponsors own PR

The event is already being supported by most of the major car manufacturers and luxury goods suppliers and is anticipated to draw an international crowd in their thousands.

John would be delighted to welcome you into the team and respectively request you to contact him to discuss your requirements.
