Rally: Antoine L'Estage launches fundraiser to win 7th title

Canadian rally star Antoine L’Estage has launched a fundraiser to help him capture a 7th Canadian Rally title and 7th North American Cup.

L’Estage is offering for sale a limited series of just 2,500 personally autographed “Never give up” t-shirts.

“Several of my sponsorship contracts expired recently. I was convinced everything would work out for the best, but despite my victories, prizes and championships, negotiations with my prospective sponsors have been difficult and time consuming and I may be forced me to cancel my trials in RALLY AMERICA,” L’Estage wrote on his web site.

“As you know, racing is prohibitively expensive at this level of competition. Over the years, I have personally invested a lot of money and effort to make it this far and I’ll never give up! So I am asking you, my fans and fans of extreme sports, to help me achieve my dream.

"My team and I are organizing a fundraiser to ensure our on-going success and we will be offering a unique collector’s item, a Limited Edition T- shirt personally autographed by myself. Each and every sale counts towards our success,” Antoine explained.

The t-shirts are sold for $99 and can be ordered from this dedicated web site: http://antoinelestage.com/nevergiveup/en/
