How safe is motor sport? I don’t want to get hurt!

Motor sport carries an inherent risk but that risk is managed (i.e. reduced) through the application of sporting and technical regulations. These can include things like requiring the use of helmets and overalls, roll cages, special seats, harnesses and more. All events are run by trained Officials and Marshals, while venues have to be inspected and licensed to make sure they are safe for use. All of this – and more – combines to give motor sport a great safety track record, although accidents can and do happen.
