1440 is simply the number of minutes in a day.

But what it represents is so much more than that.

For our clients, share of mind with current and future customers and consumers in an era of goldfish-like attention spans is ever more difficult, so finding and creating evergreen content is critical. Motorsports not only provides a full year of content opportunities, but also a fanbase that outshines its sporting peers in terms of desire for content and demonstrable engagement.

Our B2B enterprise clients are consistently in search of minutes with the C-suite of their current or prospective customers. Some just delighted with thirty-minutes to deepen or create a new relationship that leads to greater share of wallet or new anchor revenue.

Contrary to its sporting peers, motorsport and golf provide unique opportunities to spend an entire day (48 thirty-minute meetings) with principal level decision makers, to showcase technology, create relationships that stick, and go beyond the thirty-minute PowerPoint.

Our days are fleeting. Every minute counts. We are steadfastly aware of the need for commercial activity for our rights holders, and compressed, easily digestible information to speed our existing sponsors and clients’ decision making, activation planning, and executive communication. As a result, we keep internal meetings short and to a minimum, track and manage daily metrics, and know the true try to honour ‘Have you got a minute…?’ at all cost!
