Promotion and Sponsorship
To support local promotion, professional broadcast materials have been produced. These can be found on Youtube and are also aired on national TV. These materials provide many opportunities to promote our sponsors through interviews, bike decals/signage and signage in view of the onboard Go-Pro.
The caliber of the competition is significant, previous riders have inlcluded Jeremy McWilliams, John McGuiness, Cam Donald, Troy Corser, Steve Martin, Jed Mecher, to name but a few. And this is not a parade, the fastest laps at Phillip Island are in the 1:36's, which would have placed you on the grid for world superbike just a few years ago.
Mojo Yamaha is planning to build on its success in 2019 and is looking for sponsorship for the event in 2020..
