F1 in Schools is delighted to announce an exciting new relationship with the high-profile Go Motorsport initiative. Set up by the Motor Sports Association, governing body of UK motor sport, and launched last year by Lewis Hamilton in the Mclaren Technology Centre, Go Motorsport has been established to help all-comers to get involved in all aspects of motor sport from racing and rallying to karting and stunt-driving style autotests.
As well as enjoying great support from Lewis, the campaign is backed by a whole host of famous faces including newly crowned world champion Jenson Button, Damon Hill, David Coulthard, Martin Brundle and Sir Frank Williams.
While the Go Motorsport scheme sets out to encourage those of any age to start competing, spectating and/or volunteering, most of its focus is on the next generation of potential champions – those currently being inspired by the stirring efforts of both Lewis and Jenson. They, of course, started karting at a very young age and there's a special section on the GoMotorsport.net website detailing all the many thrilling opportunities available to those aged under 17 and thus unable to drive on the roads.
What's more Go Motorsport has just set up an exciting new School Visits programme via the appointment of eight nationwide Regional Development Officers. Each RDO has, of course, been CRB checked and their presentations include an introductory DVD and feature a range of props including high-tech components from an F1 car. Topics covered also include advice on careers in engineering, information on local events together with a clear road safety message. Plainly it is much safer for all if those wishing to have fun on four wheels get their kicks in a properly organised MSA event at an approved venue rather than on the public roads.
As part of Go Motorsport's partnership with F1 in Schools, these RDOs will be attending local Regional Heats during the run up to Christmas. Moreover those UK schools registering for the 2009/2010 season can be among the first to book a special Go Motorsport presentation.
