Motor Sport Association launch Go Motorsport Live

GoMotorsportLiveSilverstone is to host the first ever Go Motorsport Live event, which has been designed to encourage more people to enter the world of motorsport. The Motor Sports Association (MSA), on July 7, will take over the circuit, and is urging local motor clubs to participate.

Marshals clubs will be offering advice to potential recruits while, as an introduction to both circuit racing and rallying, Silverstone will be providing hot laps and rally rides as well as tours of its facilities. Visitors will even be offered the chance to stand on the F1 podium.

As co-promoters of National Motorsport Week, the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) and its members will be offering careers advice for those seeking employment within the world leading UK motor sport industry. Young engineers will also enjoy special access to the Formula Student finals that are being staged at Silverstone over that weekend.

Colin Hilton, MSA chief executive, said: “Go Motorsport Live has all the ingredients to become an effective open day that showcases many aspects of our sport. The timing is perfect, too. Those watching the British Grand Prix can, just seven days later, come to Silverstone and discover just how easy it is for them to get involved in the sport they’ve been following.”
