Crowdfunding the Bristol Grand Prix

 

"I am delighted to have the Bristol Grand Prix taking place during Big Green Week, organised by Bristol people for Bristol people. I will be there on my bike leading the way!"

 

George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol, 2015

 

In January 2015 we were commissioned by Bristol's Big Green Week board to secure the funding for the festival and to crowdfund for a new sporting fixture - the first ever city centre Bristol Grand Prix Cycle Race.

 

The race was an important element of the Bristol Green Capital 2015 programme, promoting cycling as a healthy, sustainable alternative to car travel in the city, a message which was central to the Green Capital year.

 

This, our second major crowdfunding challenge raised £16,299 from race entrants fees, track-side banner sales, tshirt sales and corporate sponsorship and matchfunding.
