2 IntroductionThe purpose of Sabre’ Cook Management, LLC is to offer selected individuals the opportunity to invest in the racing career of one of America’s most promising young drivers and have the potential of a good return on that investment. The business plan calls for multiple partners and investment levels in order to broaden the opportunity. You may question the timing of such a proposal. In fact the timing is quite good. Currently, teams and their series promoters and suppliers find themselves with lagging revenues and are more open to giving favorable deals. Sponsorship dollars are also harder to come by. The less determined drivers and those lacking in creativity will fall by the wayside leaving fewer drivers in the junior ranks for the top teams to pick from when the economy turns. The peak earning years of a professional IndyCar driver are typically between ages 25 and 38.
3 Introduction continued The pursuit of excellence in motorsport is somewhat unique. Rarely in any other sport are the costs to compete so high even at the junior levels. An ambitious and talented athlete in this sport needs literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in support if he or she is to reach their career goal of becoming a paid professional.However for the successful professional driver the returns can be substantial. Top drivers in IndyCar currently earn $3 to $4 million annually with total career earnings topping $40,000,000*.*Source: Bobby Rahal Indy 500 Winner & Co-owner of IZOD IndyCar Team Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing
