What's involved with sponsoring Cliffhanger

Cliffhanger would not be possible without the incredible support from our sponsors.

Businesses small and large benefit by affiliating and advertising with Cliffhanger.

Cliffhanger is known by everyone in 4wd - just ask any one you see on a 4WD track, grey nomads towing vans, tradies with utes or fishermen on beaches. Thanks to 15 very successful events with amazing publicity, thousands of DVD sales and 4wd magazines around the world running stories the Cliffhanger brand is well established throughout all of Australia and the 4wd world. When sponsors advertise with Cliffhanger the teams and people attending are just the stone that starts the ripple that creates the wave that spreads everywhere. So it's not just a matter of whether your product suits our race trucks but rather the respect you will get from your clientele by being affiliated with the established Cliffhanger brand and the reach, impact and influence we can have.

Also don't forget we don't just have battle trucks but also introductory classes for family spec vehicles so if you want more soft-road we provide that too.

Prizes and contributions  

For many sponsors product is a lot easier than cash so we shall consider all offers. We don't expect any sponsor to give us actual cash but we can send a tax invoice for advertising and can convert monetary contributions into cash for presentation. We can hand out product as prizes and we can sell donated goods and turn them into cash. 

Going the extra miles for Level A and B ($5,000+) sponsors

  • Every single day for the 2 years leading up to the next event we have 2 action shots scheduled to hit facebook and instagram. Not only are the logos of all our $5,000+ sponsors across the bottom of every picture but we have also linked to those sponsors' own social media pages.  Let's face it, where else do you get that sort of social media interaction?
  • Cliffhanger has a shopping part in it's web site that's also integrated to social media. You can give us details of up to 20 items we can list for sale and you set the prices etc. We advertise this to our 75,000 strong email and sms data base and you could be paying off your advertising with Cliffhanger in no time.

Cliffhanger Workshop Banner
Each team will receive a workshop banner

Event Shirts
Every one attending will receive an official event shirt. The colour of the shirt will be the state colour of the team that won Challenge Class at the prior event so we will have Maroon shirts in 2021.  Additional shirts may be purchased and we also sell them online and through social media.

Sponsorship Deadlines
We have a lot of art work to arrange and then merchandise and trophies, etc. to produce (some from overseas).  Also we are on site 1-2 months before the event so it all needs to be completed before then. As such we need all arrangements finalised, paid up or prizes supplied, artwork sorted and team stickers supplied before 31st of March 2023 please.

Sponsorship Announcements
The sooner we announce your support the sooner the benefits start rolling in and in the event of Corporate Sponsors the sooner we lock in exclusivity of your industry type. We can not announce or lock you in until your contribution is received or paid.

We are changing the way we do sponsor stickers on cars. In prior years some of our bigger sponsors gave us the smallest stickers. Moving forward we will produce our own door stickers with the event and sponsor logos all in relevant sizes. Sponsors no longer need to provide us with expensive stickers and we can guarantee that all race cars display event sponsor logos. Note only level A and B sponsors appear on doors.
