2005 SPONSORSHIP PROPOSAL
***2006 PROPOSAL TO COME SOON***
What is Drifting?
Drifting is a high skill, high powered motorsport that calls for drivers to control a car while it slides sideways at high speeds through a marked course. It is similar to rally racing, but is done on a closed paved course. It is judged on execution and style rather than just who finishes the course the fastest, similar to skateboarding and freestyle motocross. The sport caters well to spectators and is exciting to watch.
2004 was the first year of the Formula Drift series- the first national drifting championship series in the United States. Drifting is a fast growing motorsport, with a growing fan base and many corporations vying to take advantage of the attention.
Why Sponsor Drifting?
Low expense for high exposure. The cost of competing in drifting is much less than most other forms of motorsports, while it enjoys large viewership and media coverage. Many national magazines have covered drifting (including Hot Rod, Modified Mag, etc.). The competitions of the 2005 season will be televised. Events are very well attended (often selling out the entire venue), DVD sales of events are popular, events are talked about on the internet, and merchandise sales are brisk.

Who is Bubba Drift?
Bubba Drift, based in Texas, has developed a reputation for drifting domestic vehicles. We have nearly two years of drifting experience and more than five years experience in competitive motorsports. We have traveled around the country competing in drift events.
We are an organization that is made up of professionals and automotive enthusiasts. We have skilled and courteous drivers. The owner is a mechanical engineer and our media coordinator manages marketing. We also manage our own mechanical and fabrication work at our shop, Horseplay Motorsports.
For the 2005 season we will field two cars: the 1986 El Camino and a 1973 Datsun 240Z with a Nissan V8. We are an experienced drift team that has secured an exclusive spot in the 2005 Formula Drift season among America's best sponsored drift teams.
Why Sponsor Bubba Drift?
We have developed a track record that shows we command significant attention for our sponsors, both at events and through media outlets. We have a successful history of sponsorship, and our sponsors from last season will continue their support for the 2005 season.
Many companies have already recognized the value of sponsoring a drift team, and even more see the incredible potential for consumer exposure in the upcoming 2005 drift season. Now that the American professional drifting leagues are entering their second season, there are only a handful of teams that can claim a sponsor-qualifying background. With Bubba Drift, your sponsorship will be carried with the assurance that goes with an established history of accomplishments and media exposure.
Media Exposure Projections for the 2005 Season
Drifting as a motorsport is growing at an exponential rate. 2004 saw the appearance of the very first professional American drifting series, Formula Drift, and the reception was far greater than predicted. Even though drifting has yet to reach the majority of motorsport enthusiasts, most of the inaugural season Formula Drift competitions sold out of spectator tickets.

The 2005 season will see an increase in professional league drift activities, an increase in media coverage and enthusiast attention. Slipstream Global's Formula Drift series has already established itself in it's inaugural season, and it will be back in 2005 with a six event championship that will bring drifting to large cities across the country. Formula Drift has also teamed up with CART Champ Cars to bring drifting awareness directly to an established motorsport viewership. The 2005 Formula Drift Championship series will be televised, with additional off-track coverage of the top teams.
Other established drifting series and events will also be vying for media attention. D1GP, RS*R, and Drift Show Off are just a few of the organizations that will be bringing drifting to cities across the country.
