WDF1 and EF1 announce sponsor package
Teams well backed for 2010.
Team: Williamson Dynamics F1
Williamson Dynamics Grand Prix, and stablemate outfit European F1, both announced a number of new sponsorship tie-ups for the 2010 season.
First out of the block is Deadlite Industries, a Lancaster based firm that has enjoyed steady growth via a number of interests ranging from Clothing, extreme sports apparel and nurturing local music talent.
Deadlite owner Paul Maher said;
"I've have worked with Ben [Williamson] before, and its always a pleasure. After supporting European F1 in the 2009 season, I have been impressed with the conduct and performance of the team as well as the clear vision Ben has expressed for the future of the brand. Deadlite Industries are excited and proud to continue our relationship into 2010."
Also announced is a one year deal with small UK operation, October Red Snowboards as well as a continuation of the team's agreement with independent British newspaper, The Morning Star. All this comes in addition to the agreements with auto modding firm, DAW Motorsport and engine conversion company LPG systems UK.
Just before the team's press release, a lucrative agreement was also reached with web design consultancy, Maxico.
Maxico seem to be keen to establish themselves as a primary partner to the team and recognise e-sports as a strong emerging market in the UK and Europe.
Maxico CEO Matthew Mace was quoted as saying;
"Maxico Web Design are extremely proud to be an official partner of Williamson Dynamics Grand Prix. I feel confident that both firms share the same ethos, pasion and flair for what they do and this makes us ideal partners in this interesting fledgling market."
It is believed that the team will now no longer be running with livery space donated for free to companies.
Team owner Ben Williamson added in closure;
"It's great to be able to find so many businesses open to partnering up with our team. While realistically we won't see the benefit of most of these deals until the 2011 season, it does secure the teams future plans to expand. We aimed to price our deals realistically, and I feel we've been successful. We had to accept that we were not going to be making any amount of money worth noticing due to the low exposure to target audience that FSR can offer at this point, but as the fanbase grows the sponsor revenue should too."
