First, I want to thank you for clicking this page to help support Danny George!
I always wondered what it would be like to be a racecar driver, so I took a giant leap later on in life to pursue my dreams. Now, having been provided an opportunity to race in my favorite racing sport of all time, also known as drifting, I realized what it was like from both sides of the helmet, the driver and the fan. This is why my team’s number one goal during the 2012 Formula Drift season was to interact with the fans as much as possible; providing as much involvement, knowledge, and friendship to each and every one of them. My recognition of this open communication with the Formula Drift fans was immortalized when my fellow drivers and crew members voted and awarded me and my team the winner of “The Spirit of Drift.” This coveted award embodies the essence of the sport of drifting!
This year I want to take the fan interaction with the sport to a level never been done before in drifting history. With the Formula Drift season fast approaching and the hardships of chasing the corporate sponsor dollar, I realize that I will not continue racing without the further support of my family, friends, and you the believers in me, Danny George. This is why I am asking you, my loyal supporters for your help and in return have multiple opportunities to completely merge the team and the car with you. As you can see I have put together various levels of commitment that are not only affordable but will allow the team to achieve its goals set forth for the 2013 season. Our goal for this season is to attend and drive at each of the seven rounds of the Formula Drift Championship Series.
During the coming year, the experience we will bridge the sport with the spectators who share the same love for drifting. Therefore, I have come up with the idea of having a fan based racecar. Through the fans helping to support our program I want to give back! My way of giving back is to put your face on the car and to show the world we are Danny George no matter what face we wear. Yes, your face will be printed along with the other supporters as the main design of the car wrap this year for the millions to see in all parts of the world because this is my Formula Family!
To further your value of support we added a whole other level of awesome, we decided to add raffles as well! Through your gracious support, even as little as a DOLLAR we wanted to provide an opportunity for anyone to win some of the awesome things we will be giving away this year! One raffle will be conducted for one randomly selected lucky supporter for the grand prize of all prizes. The grand prize will include an all-inclusive trip to Round 7 Formula Drift Irwindale for you and a friend. The prize includes round trip airfare, 2 nights hotel, 2 VIP tickets for event, 2 days of food and beverage, VIP experience as a team member, and 2 swag packs! Other raffles and/or giveaways will be conducted online and at events; including swag packs, personalized Danny George product, event tickets, etc.
Why is Meeting our Deadline Important?
Time is running out! It is crucial to make this happen NOW. March 15th is our deadline! This deadline allows us to know whether or not we will have the funds to race this season. Setting this deadline also provides us time to have the car wrap produced and delivered, guaranteeing that each of our supporters will have their spot properly placed on the Danny George Formula Family racecar for the world to see when we debut the car at the Round One Formula Drift event in Long Beach, CA on (date).
Luckily, we are one of the leanest driver programs in the series. After running our rookie season last year, we realize where cuts to the budget will be made in order to maximize and stretch every dollar to run an efficient program. To run the bare minimum and make every Formula Drift event, our bottom dollar figure is $25,000 in sales. The rest of the funds will be supplied through WreckHouse LLC and Danny George Motorsports to complete the remainder of the budget needs.
