Like all non–profit organizations, sponsors and donations are important part of day-to-day operations. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available to businesses, members, fans, and all others who wish to help support the T-6 Racing Association. Your sponsorship and donations help with the cost of day-to-day operations, meals, fuel, and other costs associated with racing. The T-6 racers and their race planes are seen by over 500,000 people at the air races as well as 10 million people yearly – and that’s just at airshows! This does not include the 300-plus publications with photos and articles about our racers seen worldwide. Sponsor logos on the T-6 website will have a link to your website or your contact information. All sponsorships and donations of $150 or more include one yearly membership to the T-6 Racing Association, T-shirt, hat and limited edition hat pin, unless otherwise stated.
