How does motorsport help the UK overcome the dark age (Part 2)

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.

Sports broadcasters

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.

How does motorsport help the UK overcome the dark age (Part 1)

The automotive industry is rooted in war and the inherent resilience that has provided hope for prosperity after the pandemic.

Did you find that, in the first weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, the stories of British motorsport companies have shifted their expertise to sudden and overwhelming medical needs? The answer has made the industry proud, but it’s hardly a surprise.

Engineers are the first to go into crisis, because by definition, they love to challenge quick, efficient, and practical solutions, and some of the 25,000 most creative and most creative people in the UK is one of 25,000 people working in the racing business.

Adapting under intense pressure and making important decisions based on scientific logic? That’s what they do, day in and day out, in workshops, oars, tunnels and service parks gather around the world.

The Covid-19 pandemic challenges

It’s easy to doubt Dunkirk’s call to arouse spirit. However, given the Covid-19 challenges, it can understand its inspiration in the darkest hours.

In motorsport, there’s an old analog of comparing the heat of competition with war, especially about the development of new technology – but it’s just a cliché word because it carries more than a grain of truth. Drawing a line from today, the highly developed Formula 1 team – seven of which are based in the UK – and it runs directly back to World War II.

Engineers then laid the foundations for British racing. It was necessary to react quickly to develop ideas for fighting and winning on land, sea, and air battles.

In aviation, war has created a lightweight, high-speed, aerodynamic competitive challenge. Therefore, engineers have developed new solutions for every day – and if that fails, everyone is dead.

Among those dead or alive needs came a generation after the outbreak of ideas. Some of them poured their energy into the emerging racing sport. In the late 1950s, people like Cooper and Lotus exploited the technologies born directly from the Battle of England to conquer the great race.

By the 1960s, the British revolution not only surpassed F1. However, even the Indianapolis 500 unilaterally was difficult – and the industry’s young shoots continued to blossom. Its roots run so deep and powerful that its 4,000 companies. This was from small experts, artisans to 1200 manufacturers owned F1 giants – exist here, unimpeded in the middle. The heart of the racing universe.
