Although we do not receive the same level of media attention or spectator interest as high profile sports such as Formula One, the same marketing principals apply.Sponsors can use Legends Car / Autograss racing for:- exposure and awareness- promotional activity- image building- media campaigns- addressing a specific target audience- corporate hospitalityThe most effective way to use a Motorsport sponsorship is to base it around strong brand identification on the driver and the car and then use photographs in advertising and marketing materials.Promotional activity at race events is also effective in addressing spectators.Sponsors in Motorsport

16 History of Legends Cars In 1992, the officials at USA’s Lowe's Motor Speedway (formerly Charlotte Motor Speedway) began noticing a great need all across North America. This need was very simple: an affordable race car with a unique design that requires little maintenance time and cost. This was brought about because many short tracks have allowed the cost of their competing race cars to escalate out of control with "loose" rules.Car counts began to drop drastically, and at that moment, track officials estimate that 30% to 40% of the race cars in North America were not in competition because of cost.As a result of this research, in January 1992, US Legend Cars, Inc. was launched and so began a highly-accelerated R&D program of a new race car that would be affordable, race on smaller tracks and have low maintenance costs.It was then in April of 1992 that the first Legends Car was unveiled at the Lowe's Motor Speedway. The concept of creating a fun and affordable "spec" class of racing for anyone to participate in was born.
17 History of Legends Cars Since that time, the Legends Cars have become one of the fastest growing segments of motorsports today. With drivers being classified into four different divisions, Legends Cars is THE racing opportunity that is available to anyone!The Pro Division is for the experienced drivers.The Masters Division features drivers 40 years and older.The Semi-Pro Division is the novice class, featuring the drivers that are new to the sport or have been inactive in other forms of racing for a while.While the car stays the same from division to division, it is the driver that makes the difference!The Legends Cars continue to be produced by US Legend Cars, Inc. in Harrisburg, North Carolina. Currently they are the largest mass producer of race cars in the world. Presently, there are more than 3,500 Legends Cars in existence.
