All about us
www.motorsport-guide.com is a sector-specific platform that will be available to all those working in the world of motor sport. In short, we aim to ensure that anyone who has-or is looking for-services or products will be able to make contact quickly and easily via this platform. All you have to do is register with us so we can enter you in our database.
Good for the motor sport business: the fact that everything will be available in two languages will facilitate contact with foreign companies. This will allow international business contacts to be made beyond the borders of the German-speaking world. Our web presence at international trade fairs and in the English-language media will ensure that motorsport-guide.com will also be well-known outside the German-speaking world.
Take a look at our brief presentation to learn more about the concept behind the idea. In the long-run, we aim to offer motorsport-guide.com services via mobile phone to ensure that they are available where it matters: at racetracks.
A demo version of the platform was launched at the same time as the Essen Motor Show 2003. Regular business will get underway in January 2004. Ideas that we have gathered in the course of numerous discussions at trade fairs (Essen, Luxemburg, Birmingham, Offenbach etc.) will be integrated into the website to enhance its utility. Initially, we aim to focus on automobile sports and karting. Continuous extensions of the subject matter are planned.
The contents of the website will focus on meeting the needs of motor sport professionals. This also includes amateur drivers, because their personal and financial involvement also takes place at a professional level.
NEW: clever search engines that give rapid results.
The core feature of the site is an address database filled with free entries (intended for drivers) and entries for which staggered rates are charged (for teams and commercial suppliers). This database will offer an overview of the motor sport sector in Germany and its neighbouring countries. The variety of functions makes this database completely new and unique in the sector. Users can search the database for names, addresses, telephone numbers, products or services. A comprehensive division of fee-paying entries into groups makes it easier to catalogue service providers and companies. It takes only three clicks to find the telephone number, e-mail address or website of a provider or company!
The rates for the various different database entry packages have purposefully been kept low to facilitate registration with the address database. This will ensure that the database will be as complete as possible. Click here for >> the registration form
Expert information at professional level
Apart from functioning as a trade and contact exchange, we also offer specialist articles that will be of interest to people working in the world of motor sport and their trade partners. These articles will be written by specialists on specific topics. The e-mail of the author will be added to each article to allow direct contact to be made. Furthermore, all registered users have the chance to comment on these articles in our forum. This gives authors the chance to get some indirect feedback from readers.
Faculties, companies, experts and self-employed people will be able to publish papers. This special form of PR will help them demonstrate their expertise, indirectly market themselves, and pave the way for new contacts. In view of the fact that there is no specialist magazine for motor sport professionals on the German-language market, it makes sense to publish on the Internet. The advantage for the authors: firstly, they enhance their reputation and secondly, they get feedback from the experts in forum discussions.
We also offer additional advertising opportunities in the form of banners and sponsorship logos.
We also conduct interviews. The aim of these interviews is to showcase people in the motor sport sector, their ideas, activities and companies. In these interviews, the focus is not on scientific or technical facts, but rather on personal opinions.
Over the years, all these articles and interviews will form a knowledge database for the field of motor sport, which registered users can search using targeted, full-text searches (e.g. using technical terms). Our priority will always be to ensure optimum utility for users.
Market place for vehicles and parts; job exchange for motor sport specialists
An important part of this website will also be the market place for new and used vehicles and parts as well as the job exchange, which will be tailored to meet the needs of the motor sport business.
Co-operation with competent partners
We aim to bring the crème de la crème of the motor sport world together. This is why we contact experts for information on specific issues. The British RaceTech magazine, for example, will supply us with high-quality articles, which we will translate into German. Engineers, marketing specialists, team bosses and other experts will write about issues in their field of expertise, always from a practical point of view.
By continuously extending our cooperation with competent partners, we will ensure a steady stream of new, high-quality input. Do you want to make a contribution? Then send us an e-mail with your topic suggestions.
