The issues of diversity and inclusion in motorsport have rarely been adequately
addressed and the evidence of this is found amid the composition of those
who compete in its respective disciplines, as well as produce and administer
the sport in its various forms. In recent times a greater determination to make
a meaningful difference in the under-representation of all minority groups,
emerging from what might be regarded as non-traditional motorsport regions,
has again surfaced.
This report, which is notable because it directly reflects the stated views of
ASNs most adversely impacted by the continued absence of a coherent FIAled plan to address their underrepresentation, highlights the importance of
promoting diversity and inclusion agendas within motorsport, the critical role
this plays in encouraging a greater number of young people to continue their
involvement in it and the importance of offering a ‘hand up’ rather than a ‘hand
out’ when facilitating a meaningful change in their lived experiences to date
within motorsport
