Introduction Welcome to the racing world of Kelvin Hassell. Kelvin has been campaigning American stock cars throughout Europe for a number of years with much success. He is now racing them on their home soil over in the United States. This gives his marketing partners a unique opportunity for branding, leverage and activation in both the USA and in Europe. Kelvin’s “Key race” program is designed to offer maximum return on investment for his partners. This presentation is an introduction to both Kelvin and his associate sponsor programs. It will offer ideas on how your organisation can benefit from an association with Kelvin Hassell Racing for different events.
Mission Statement As a driver, Kelvin represents hard work and dedication. Racing in the USA presents many challenges. Some are obvious, some less so, but all must be overcome if Kelvin is to reach his goal. Which is to always get to the checkered flag first. Kelvin makes his marketing partner’s goals his own. He knows that these goals must be achieved in order to be in the race to the checkered flag. Kelvin works to make sure his partners have a successful marketing campaign in full swing with proper quantifiable results before pulling his crash helmet on and “making news stories for leverage.” Or racing as we call it. We select partners on the basis of how we can help them. Not the other way around. Don’t think of us as a race team, think of us as a marketing machine dedicated to your success.
Kelvin is aware that racing in the USA leaves many of his UK fans behind, so he is sure to keep them updated through his website and social media. And be rest assured that they ALL know when Kelvin is racing in the UK or the USA. All of Kelvin’s UK based marketing partners take full advantage of local events as Kelvin directs media attention to his sponsors. Helping even modest investments go a long way in terms of advertising, leverage and activation.
Driver Bio Kelvin began Kart racing in 1993 taking his first win in his second start. He went on to win the Buckmore Park Winter Series. He added a short stint in the UK National Championship to his resume before moving up to cars on his 16 th birthday. Kelvin took numerous wins and fastest laps to a second place in the Modified Ford Saloon Car Championship. He then swapped the road courses for the ovals. His first stock car was a Baby Grand. He drove to second place in the National Championship after which he made the natural progression to Late Models. Kelvin has competed in Late Models and Sprint cars scoring a massive tally of wins before setting his sights on America. His aim is to see how far up the USA stock car ladder his talent will take him. Expect it to be a fun and exciting adventure that you will want to be a part of!
