National Motorsports Week runs from tomorrow (7th August) til the 15th of August and the aim of the project is to promote motorsport to the public and introduce new people and fans to the world of racing. National Motorsport Week is a joint initiative between the M.I.A (Motorsports Industry Association) and the Motorsport Foundation.
This year includes events such as live motorsport competition, displays, talks by the people involved in the industry and open days. The showcase event for this year are the open days for the Renault F1 factory based in Enstone, Oxfordshire. The open days include:
- Tour of the factory
- A visit to the heritage centre where you can see Renault F1 cars of the past
- Taking part in a pit-stop challenge
- Being able to sit in Renault’s 2010 F1 car, and get your photo taken.
- Meeting F1 mechanics and drivers from Renault’s young driver programme (World Series/Formula Renault)
