It’s that time of the season again! The Racer X Amateur Film Festival is upon us, and we’ll soon be calling out to the world’s aspiring amateur motocross videographers. Soon, participants can begin submitting short films in hopes becoming one of eight semifinalists whose work will be showcased for the global motocross community. Your involvement will give your brand exposure through Racer X’s various media and social outlets and will help you establish relationships with tomorrow’s professional filmmakers. (Past participants Dayton Daft, Dillon Gwaltney, and Danny Stuart, for example, have worked with Motosport and Feld Entertainment.) See below for a list detailing the benefits of sponsorship. For more information, please contact one of our sales associates listed at the bottom of this page.

Looping and Animation
Banner ads on Racer X Online are programmed and placed to be seen, so it’s not necessary to get overly flashy with your banner ads, particularly on half page units. If you do use video or a lot of movement, we highly suggest limiting it to one or two loops max, then stopping on a static call-to-action. Keep in mind that our half page units sometimes stay on a user’s screen for up to 15 minutes.
Above images to be viewed as an example only. Please consult your ad rep about which placements you will be receiving.
