I was wondering when I read about Subaru pulling out of the rally, and even F1 Formula losing HUGE sponsors, how can a company justify spending $ on kiting when kite company don't really sponsor the events.

I wonder about team "rider" money this year.

Red Bull?

Maybe it's because they havn't signed up with the IKA yet that they are finding it hard to get sponsors. :wink:
