The Davos of Motorsport #WMS14
10 years of inspiration and brainstorming
 

Celebrating it's tenth anniversary, the RACE TECH World Motorsport Symposium has built a reputation as the most prestigious international event and forum organised for the who's who of motorsport engineering at all levels to get together under one roof and freely discuss issues specific to them as well as being a place where new ideas are aired. Chaired every year by Audi Sport's Ulrich Baretzky and Caterham F1's John Iley, who take time out of their extremely busy schedules to run these two fantastic days along with the RACE TECH magazine team, it was recently described by an Italian journalist as the motorsport industry equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

Due to popular demand, once again the format will be in the style of a Motorsport Cabinet Meeting making proceedings far more interactive for everyone. Rather than have a series of presentations delivered over the two days, we will have few speakers, more panellists and a forum that generates much more open debate. Then continue your discussions into the evening whilst also dining on fine wine and food.

 

COME AND JOIN THE DEBATE: 
The question this year is fundamental to the future of motorsport.
Does it have a role in exploiting new technologies, even if they are disruptive and can be costly,
or should they be controlled and even discouraged?
