Want a prime example of the UK’s arrival? Mercedes-AMG F1. For all of Germany’s industrial-strength, Daimler chose not just one but two small towns in Central England to tackle the six-time championship super development team and associated technology development center.
That’s the investment benefit from a complex and professional network of suppliers, as well as from the UK’s international workforce and horticultural workforce – many of whom have been trained at UK universities. Like all success stories, the British racing industry is built on the shoulders of the people who control it.
The initial surge of technology that has erupted from the war has accelerated since the 1960s because of the increasingly recognized commercial potential in motorsport. Hugh TV has become a core catalyst in changing the role of sport in society, he said, Hugh Chambers, CEO of the governing body Motorsport UK.
What is especially appealing to broadcasters is that sport is very appealing that people want to go back and watch it many times. Producing sitcoms or quiz shows, and it’s hard to predict which one will stick. As the TV expanded, bidding battles for power increased and money began to flow into the sport.
What Bernie Ecclestone has done with Formula 1 is a great job to make money from scratch. Okay, it doesn’t go directly to the grassroots, because there isn’t any significant commercialization beyond a certain national level, but it flows through certain aspects of infrastructure.
And I would say that technology has benefited from the commercial nature of this sport. The automotive industry, fueled by commercialism, has created an extraordinary infrastructure for medium and small businesses. They can then produce high-quality machinery and components, which are then available to the entire industry.
Chambers also allocates growth to increase the carmaker’s interest in motorsport. Of course, it was always there: winning on Sunday, selling on Monday, was a factor from the early days of the car because Chambers knew only too well.
His father, Marcus, was an important figure in the development of motorsport in this country, as the owner of the British Motor Corporation (BMC) competition. Television-based commercialism only motivates carmakers to invest more in the sport, whether it’s racing, saloon, motorsport, or eventually F1.
