Spot the sponsors competition

Remember our “Spot the Race” competition last year? We sent five winners, with partners, for a champagne day-out at York racecourse. The overall winner – the Bottle Green Company – took staff to York’s October meeting, where they were fêted with a private box and champagne reception.

Well, we’re doing it again, but with one significant difference. This time, the field has been widened to bring in sports other than horse racing.

The eventual overall winner will, once again, win him- or herself a private box and champagne reception for 12 at York’s October meeting (October 9, 10 or 12). In addition, five individual round winners will win a champagne day out for two in York’s salubrious Ebor restaurant. The prize combines a gourmet meal with one of the best racing views in Europe.

Round Here’s all you have to do. Identify the title sponsor associated with the forthcoming event indicated in the clue below:

This sponsor makes a racket at the Queen’s club each year.

Send your solution on a postcard, to the address below by Thursday, June 27 at the latest. The winner will be announced in the issue of July 5, when the the Round 2 clue is published.

Each correct solution to a round earns one place in the final draw, scheduled for September. Remember to include company name, address and day phone number in the entry.

In all cases the judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Address: Marketing Week, Spot the Sponsor, the Race Course, York YO2 1EX.
