#409 Lets Evolve the CryptoKart into the SmartKart

By mjthestudentactuary

Summary

Sponsor 4 professional level karting events in Cape Town, South Africa.

Description

First off take a look at my kart here: https://imgur.com/9OMeIgs

I designed the wrapping back in January before I knew about Smartcash.

I have done 4 races this year and unfortunately, I've been in few crashes.

I need to re-wrap my kart and looking to see if the community wants to help me design the new look.

So far I've come up with this first draft design: https://imgur.com/1fHLtbP

Essentially I want to make SmartCash the main focus of the design.

 

Around the pits my kart is known as the CryptoKart and its encouraged some of the other drivers to invest in coins like Ethereum and Litecoin. Sponsoring my kart is mainly just a fun thing to do, I will post a video about my racing career on my YouTube channel that has over 10000 subscribers. So it will bring some attention to SmartCash but mainly this is for fun. SmartCash already has a great reputation of sponsoring boxers, bikers and e-sport players. It would be great to continue this trend and add a karter to that list.

Karting is a bit expensive and here is the budget.

Entry fee is $100 per race.

Fuel is around $20 per race.

Wrapping the kart is around $300 (once-off)

Tyres are around $200 per race.

Repairs and parts are around $150 per race.

Promotional banners/merch with SmartCash logos are around $200 (once-off)

All in all its $500 once-off and $470 per race.

For 4 races it is a total of $2380

Lets turn the CryptoKart into the SmartKart

    Design looks pretty good. Perhaps you should've outlined more of your direct promotional ideas – it's cool that people will see the brand, but maybe organizing some media coverage (articles) about your karting and the sponsorship will reach more people.

    Yes that is a good idea. When we enter a race we do have a slot to write who our sponsor is. Events normally bring in around 200 spectators and some races get filmed for national TV. I'll reach out to some motor racing journalists and see if they are keen to write an article on the SmartKart and the cryptocurrency that is backing it. (My dad is quite well-known in the motor racing circles so I can use his connections).

    This is a great project. Cant wait to see the video. Please share the video in Smartcash Discord. Most would enjoy it. You got my vote.

    Thanks so much! I'm getting a proper film crew to take some of the shots while I'm on track, here is a sample of the work they do: https://youtu.be/54QAFGm0vHY

    Hello! I would like to know how many people attend these type of events and what type/amount of media coverage they get. Will they be interviewing you during the events? WIll you have the chance to talk about the Hive? Best Regards.

    mjthestudentactuary 05/23/2018 05:57

    Hey there. The attendance is around 200 people. The National Races get filmed for our local TV and there are some journalists and pro photographers that write for some of the local papers. Interviews occur if you come in the top three, the best I have come is fifth. We are going to be making our own video with a proper film crew and in there we will be able to talk about the Hive and why SmartCash is a step in the right direction regarding crypto. Please let me know if you have more questions. :)

    Thanks for your response. I´m glad that Smart can support your racing passion. Hopefully, now that the hive´s got your back, we´ll make it to the podium. GOOD VIBES. My only suggestion would be, if we want to attract more attention, a flashier design for your Kart might be a good idea. I am not crazy about it as it is right now but it´s just my opinion. Go get that trophy bro.

    Yeah I’ll definitely ask people for their input on discord with the design. Thank you so much for your support
