Va­ri­ety makes the UK strong

With a plethora of events ahead, 2017 looks like be­ing a bel­ter

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

In this week’s Motorsport News, we look for­ward to some of the high­lights of the next 12 months, and we pick out the must see events of the season ahead. It is a crack­ing ros­ter.

Look­ing through the list, which in­cludes ev­ery­thing from the Bri­tish Grand Prix to a nos­tal­gia event at Shelsley Walsh, it goes to demon­strate the va­ri­ety on of­fer from motorsport in this coun­try. That is some­thing we can all be proud of.

Mo­tor rac­ing in the UK is all about par­tic­i­pa­tion, and that doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean get­ting on track, but it can also mean so much more than just spec­tat­ing or watch­ing from the arm­chair. There are a whole host of roles that need ful­fill­ing to make sure that an event takes place, from mar­shalling to be­ing part of the or­gan­is­ing team. As a way of get­ting close to the sport, there is noth­ing to beat it.

So, if you are go­ing to make a res­o­lu­tion for the months ahead, how about de­cid­ing to get in­volved. Check vol­un­teersin­mo­tor­sport.co.uk for de­tails. Happy new year to all of our read­ers, and a spe­cial thanks to the vol­un­teers who make the sport we love hap­pen. Matt James, Edi­tor (Twit­ter: @Mat­tjm­news)
