“Past sponsors would benefit such as Wesbank, Castrol, Shell, Total, Sasol, Firestone and the leading manufacturers like Toyota, Ford, VW, BMW, and Nissan etc to get involved as the branding is all still on the cars, on screen, on the drivers and the track bill boards around the circuits, for the very affordable cost of R28 000 to R38 000, these companies could own a piece of this giving them massive ongoing coverage that really never ends year after year,” said Roger Mc Cleery.
