The Point-to-Point course at Dingley hosts three race meetings each year. A natural amphitheatre, the setting affords wonderful views of the races, making it one of the best viewing courses in the country for a really fun day out.
The setting and organisation of each raceday provides an ideal opportunity for you to advertise your business with us – there are options for both full sponsorship packages and more limited advertising placements, which will not only bring your business to our racegoers, but also provide excellent, enjoyable and exciting opportunities for entertaining your clients, key staff, families and friends. Why not even consider a race sponsorship as a special birthday celebration for a family member?
Dingley Races attracts solid audiences from the surrounding counties with attendance across the three meetings ranging from between 6,000 to 10,000 people. Loyalty to racing and to the hosting hunts is very strong amongst the racegoers and this gives you a special opportunity to attract their custom by supporting a cause close to their hearts. In addition to publicity on the day, our race-cards are frequently retained as souvenirs and as from this year, will be posted on our website to provide a continued presence for your business.
As well as affording business opportunities, sponsoring a race is an original and spectacular present to mark an important birthday, or other family occasion – or to remember someone special. Details of sponsorship and advertising opportunities are summarised below. However custom sponsorship packages can be arranged, subject to availability.
You can sponsor a race. As a sponsor you will enjoy the following:
- The race will be named after you or your company
- On Race day the sponsor will be promoted via the public address system
- Three complimentary VIP car parking places, in prime positions, for clients, family and friends
- Photograph memento of your representative presenting the race trophy to the winner, plus the press coverage that this generates
- Access to paddock prior to the race, and complimentary drinks in the stewards room with winning connections after the race
- A full page of mono advertising in the race card
- A free link or advert on www.dingleyraces.com website
- Complimentary race cards for sponsors and their guests
The approximate cost for sponsoring a race is £700. It provides an ideal opportunity to entertain informally your valued clients and friends. The price also includes an accompanied visit to the paddock before the race begins to look at the runners, presentation of mementoes to the connections of the winning horse, regular acknowledgements over the on-course commentary, on-course promotional material (e.g. banners etc) and a post-race drink with the winning connections. It is an opportunity to entertain clients, guests, family and friends in a relaxed and very enjoyable way at a relatively low cost.
Race sponsorship is popular and attractive, but if there are no available races numerous other sponsorship packages are available. These include fence sponsorship, supply of the mementoes to winning connections of each race, sponsorship of medical facilities on the day, and the best turned out prizes for the grooms of horses.
Advertising in the race card is £150 for a full page mono advert (£80 for a half page mono). Alternatively colour pages are available for between £400 and £200 per meeting, depending on positioning within the racecard. Discounts are offered for multiple bookings, and your company’s support will entitle you to a listing on our website www.dingleyraces.com together with a complimentary car pass!
