National Motorsport Week®
National Motorsport Week needs your help! Play your part and grow our sport.
National Motorsport Week will run from 1 July - 10 July 2016 – this is a special celebration of UK motorsport jointly promoted by the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) and the Motor Sports Association (MSA). It blasts off with Formula E, Battersea Park, London and finishes with the British Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone.
As well as including Britain’s highest profile race meeting, National Motorsport Week also features a wide range of initiatives and activities ranging from novice taster events run by local motor clubs to factory visits and open days at many of the UK’s premier motor sport-focused organisations.
A total of 9 out of 11 Formula One teams are based in the UK. 2015 saw another spectacular season for Brackley based Mercedes who won their second consecutive constructors title winning 16 of the 19 rounds, with a staggering 12 one-two finishes. That’s more with Briton's Lewis Hamilton taking 10 race victories to clinch his third world championship title.
Its aim is simple; to promote and inspire the excitement of motorsport to new audiences – to generate more interest, spectators, competitors, marshals, officials and jobs.
National Motorsport Week has run each year since 2006, with the valued backing of the MSA's affiliated motor clubs. Its aim is to attract wider media coverage, which in turn introduces new fans, competitors, spectators, organisers, engineers, journalists, photographers and much needed marshals to the planet's most thrilling sport.
To achieve this we need 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!
