Default Tires companies that offer Contingency Awards

First off, I did do a search, and came up with nothing (but my, can I say how much FASTER the search funciton is recently!)

Ok, so in the past for bike racing, I had 'sponsorship' deals with Michelin for tires. I got their tires at a pretty hefty discount, advertised, wore their logos, etc. In return, they got publicity , etc.
In addition, I got Contingency awards. Meaning, If I placed, I got money, If I got published press, I got money, etc..

So I know a few tire companies offer the Contingency (Yokohama and Hankook both do, as I am sure others do as well.)
But both seem to be, you buy our tires at full price, then you qualify for the program.

I am trying to find a program to get discount tires in a contingency program, similar to what i did with bikes.

I am a beginner auto racer, so have limited to offer. But this is not my worry at this time. I am trying to find companies that offer it first, then go the next step.



Any info would be helpful.

Thanks!

On a local level, it will be very difficult. They want people that run nationally... ie: the greater exposure.

Contingency is paid out to those that win with their tires on the car... after the event. Example: Hoosier. You win on hoosiers at certain events, you win free Hoosiers. Kumho pays out in $$. Again, all based on finishing position... at National level events.

As far as getting them at a discount... I think there are some Kumho programs that do.

yeah, I know they want naitonal exposure, and competition on a national level, but you gotta start somewhere, right?

the goal is to be able to do a full national schedule, at least semi competively, with mroe experience, not this summer, but summer of 2005. This summer is more to get more experience and learn more

Like KC said, there is no contingency on the local level. You have to run nationally to be eligible for contingency $$..

We had a local tire dealer set up a contingency deal with Falken during the '02 season. The fastest driver in the region (over the whole season) on Falkens got a free set of tires. It sounded like something ended up going wrong, and the tire dealer had to foot the bill. Still, we were on free Azenis (won by my codriver, of course ) last season.

Talking to a local tire dealer for sponsorship (discounts) is an option you may want to consider. You might be in a better position if you can show results first, though.

Yoko, Hankook, and I a couple others do offer, only if you win, on regional levels. Not saying it is a great program, but it is ap lace to start.
