Good Smile Racing Sponsorship
Good Smile Racing
Good Smile Company started a racing team recently, participating in Japan's Super GT racing series. This year they decided to start a 'personal sponsors' program, which basically involves giving them money for various stuff.
There were three levels of sponsorship open to international fans, a 3000 yen one, an 8000 yen one, and a 30,000 yen one. They had various levels of rewards. I went for the 8000 one myself.
Other than the physical rewards, sponsors get their name put onto the team website, and they also get their name written on the wall in the racing team paddock.
The main reward for this level is a Nendoroid, but that stuff isn't due until October.
Here's a full list of what is in store:
"-GSR&Studie with TeamUKYO Personal Sponsor Card
-Your handle name will appear on our website, as well as on the the circuit team paddock.*
*Available only for those sponsors who register their handle name when applying.
-Nendoroid「Racing Miku 2012 ver.」
-Metal Key Holder
-Racing Miku 2012 ver. Clear File 2-Piece Set"
It seems they are sending out a few of the bonuses early, and my letter turned up today, so let's see what we get.
A ticket holder thingy.
And a membership card.
The main physical reward is a Nendoroid. It's not due out for a long time yet, but they've shown this concept art.
