As the off season is coming to an end and sponsorship budgets are getting full. It is getting harder and harder to find sponsorships. The industry seems like it is slowing down and sales are way below what they were 2 or even 3 years ago, but Wyvern Motosports has only been around for 2 years. Even teams that have been around for up to a decade are also struggling for sponsorship dollars and some have even had to fold! What do you do? This doesn’t seem right!
In my 6 years of riding professionally and being a full blown privateer and a year of managing a Professional Motorcross Team, it seems that you have to go through 100 different people and make sure that sponsorships don’t conflict with anything that Live Nation or the AMA has going on. Which means that you might as well just go after the promoters sponsorships (if there is anymore budget left)! If that doesn’t work you are left with pennies. Nobody wants to see a successful team go down in flames! If all the teams are gone what do you have left with?
Still there are people out there that want to see the true privateer team or just the normal privateer succeed, so they do, once in a while step up and bite the bullet for sponsorship. These people are few and far between, but heroes in my eyes! Wyvern Motosports is looking for a Title Sponsor to help with our 2008 season. Wyvern Motosports is 110% dedicated just like every other team out there. We have the potential to do anything. The sky's the limit! It takes that one or two people to step up and believe in a team and go for what they know can happen.
