Following the huge success of the milliondollarhomepage.com, British racing driver Scott Mansell has launched a similar concept to help find the rest of the sponsorship he needs to race in USA this year.
Mansell, the 2004 BBC Midlands Sports Young Sports Personality of the Year and Autosport Mclaren Young Driver of the Year finalist who is aged just twenty, holds the outright lap record at Brands Hatch, Donington, Silverstone and Zolder. He is set to follow in the footsteps of the 2005 Indy 500 winner, fellow Brit Dan Wheldon, when he takes on the best in the United States in the 2006 Indy Pro series.
Companies and individuals can support Scott starting at just $50 which will get an image and link on www.milliondollarmansell.com and also on his actual race car for the 2006 season.
"Alex Tew set up Milliondollarhomepage to fund his University studies and was very successful. I am hoping to do the same in order to make sure I race in the USA this year. The big difference and added bonus is that companies and supporters who sign up at my milliondollarmansell.com site will also get their image/logo on my actual race car as well as my overalls on milliondollarmansell.com.
I still need to find more sponsorship to go and race in the Indy Pro series in America and I really need support to help me achieve this goal.
The usual costs of getting involved with sponsoring a racing driver are very prohibitive to smaller companies but this way we can still give a something tangible back at a very reasonable cost."
