Become a Sponsor

Sponsorship is essential to the success of the team. Monetary and material contributions are crucial to the success of this project, and, therefore, we do our best to fulfill our sponsors’ marketing and advertising goals. Without the generous support of local enterprises, the team would not have access to appropriate materials or expertise to continue producing our car, year after year. Our sponsors not only help us reach our goals, but also ensure that our project continues for years to come.

In the following paragraphs, you will find the team’s activities through the year, our sponsorship levels and our projected budget for the year 2012-2013.

Tax-deductible receipts may be issued for individual or corporate donations. Contact us for more information on this matter. All material, equipment and machining contributions granted to the McGill Racing Team will be counted as monetary contributions equivalent to the retail price of the goods or services.

Companies interested in developing new racing applications for their products are welcome to discuss the possibilities with the McGill Racing Team.  Please feel free to email us at

Projected Budget (2015-2016)

Building a race car is an expensive endeavour. Contrary to what one may expect, material costs account for only half of our expenses every year: the other half goes to often forgotten but equally important necessities, such as truck rentals, office supplies and insurance fees. The chart below roughly partitions where funds granted to the team are allocated.

Allocation of Funds

The McGill Racing Team exists and thrives on the generous donations of our sponsors. The chart below outlines a general breakdown on the source of sponsorship per year.
