Brad Binder 41

Racing for South Africa

We have been proud sponsors of Brad since his days in the Red Bull Rookie Cup. 2012 saw him move up to the big leagues as a rookie in Moto3 riding for the Dutch team RW Racing. In 2013 we gave him huge support (our largest sponsorship of any rider ever), enabling him to compete on top Honda equipment with his new team Ambrogio Racing.

Brad has been a welcome guest at a number of our parties and VIP suites; his down-to-earth style and natural friendliness are great assets when explaining the nuances of Moto3 racing and sharing his experiences, whether to individuals or large groups.

We continue our sponsorship into the 2014 season, with our biggest ever financial commitment to a rider (significant €5-figure).   We are VERY excited about his 2014 prospects!

Help Brad do even better

Every customer we take on a “Brad Binder Experience” helps Brad, as a substantial majority portion of the fees go to him.

However our objective is to put Brad on the most competitive machinery in the paddock, and to do this we to raise significant sums.

At this relatively early stage in his career, sponsorship can be quite cost-effective; and would significantly help both he and you get names on the world stage.  Some of the benefits:

  1. Widespread promotion of your brand

  2.  You and your partners/clients can attend events with us and Brad, and feel like real ‘insiders’

  3. The satisfaction of helping gain national recognition for South Africa

While we are not his manager, Pole Position Travel can advise to a pretty close approximation what realistic terms of a sponsorship deal might be. At the entry level, sponsorships for a rider of his position start at about €5,000.

If you would like to know more, please contact us.

We are helping to raise a total of about 1.5M ZAR for Brad to race this year. At the moment, NONE of this is coming from South Africa - a situation we hope to reverse!

Brad’s bike

For those of you more technically minded; in 2014 Brad will ride a Moto3 Mahindra with the team World Wide Racing The Mahindra is a relatively new brand, having started off 2 years ago in Moto3 as the slowest bike in the paddock, then making amazing strides in 2013 including podiums and generally better even than Honda!  We have high hopes for the machine in 2014.

The bike is a 250cc single cylinder (Moto3 spec) engine. Out of the box this is a pretty good bike, but in GP racing “pretty good” means you are scraping for 15th place...  By upgrading the various components we hope to have him on a world-class competitive bike! Perhaps with your name on it?

Quite bluntly it is owing to the support of Pole Position and his other sponsors that this has been made possible.  We want to keep him on this machinery, which is why we need you to help!
