A day at the races combines tradition, excitement and first-rate brand exposure to offer excellent marketing opportunities.
Racing appeals to a huge range of demographics with a wide target audience, from racegoers to conference and events attendees throughout the year. Warwick Racecourse offers the perfect means to economically gain wider exposure for your brand both regionally and nationally.
With 19 quality racedays throughout the season, there are numerous unique opportunities for you to effectively promote your business - from race sponsorship to racecard or social media advertising, we have the ideal option to suit your business needs.
Race sponsorship offers excellent company brand exposure through exclusive race naming rights, on-course branding and racecard advertising reaching not only thousands of racegoers, but also a far-reaching audience at home and in the UK’s 8,500 betting shops, thanks to a high level of live exposure on RacingTV and in local and national press.
The race card is the official programme for each fixture. Race sponsors automatically secure an advert, however, advertisers can purchase space on an ad hoc basis, either meeting by meeting or season long.
The racecourse has a variety of different signage locations from in front of the jumps themselves, to the finishing straight to the Parade Ring. You can paint the racecourse in your branding for your raceday if you would like too!

The Parade Ring and Winners' Enclosure are the theatre for many of our raceday focuses. Before the races our sponsors are asked to select the Best Turned Out horse and present a prize to the groom. We carry out an interview through the course PA with your chosen company representative.
Following the race, the race sponsor will be involved in the presentation to the winning connections and join all parties for a celebratory drink with the Racecourse committee.
There is no end of opportunities to promote your business to our captive audience. We are able to offer promotional staff welcoming patrons on arrival, tastings and giveaways, on-course public competitions, static promotional material on bars and restaurant tables.
