National Motorsport Week

08 August 2009

Location: Nationwide

We need your help!

Play your part and grow our sport!

National Motorsport Week (NMW) is nine days of motorsport activities across the country from Saturday 8th to Sunday 16th August 2009.

National Motorsport Week is a joint initiative between the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) and the Motorsport Foundation®. The week is an objective of the Motorsport Foundation® which generates funds for good causes to develop the UK motorsport industry and the sport.

The aim of NMW is simple; to promote and inspire the excitement of motorsport to new audiences – to generate more interest, more spectators, more competitors, more jobs, more marshals and more officials.

The spectacular results and exhilarating racing from British F1 Drivers supported a 7% leap in UK F1 viewing figures to over 29 million per race. This year also combines considerably challenging economic conditions whilst at the start of the season, F1 experienced the most extreme changes to technical regulations in its history. It is unquestionably an exceptionally exciting time for motorsport and sets the pace to grow public and media awareness across all motorsport disciplines in 2009.

To achieve this, the MIA needs YOUR support and encouragement to help introduce new fans, competitors, spectators, organisers, engineers, journalists, photographers, and highly-needed marshals to the most thrilling sport on the planet!
