motorsport: the ultimate team sporT

The Motorsport Collective is a group of global motorsport professionals who meet regularly to share their ideas, advice and contacts at a series of informal networking events around the world. 

Our members are motorsport experts and influencers from every part of the industry and our Meet Up events take place in venues around the UK and beyond. Each year, we have four additional Feature Events featuring guest speakers on a range of topics, from marketing your business or race career to how best to present yourself to the media. Non-members may attend Feature Events and Meet Up events are exclusive to members only.

We also broadcast our Feature Events to members via Facebook Live, allowing our members to watch from anywhere in the world, so they never miss an event.

From marketing, digital and media influencers to engineers and technical staff, PR and communications gurus to drivers and riders, photographers and filmers to events and hospitality experts - we're all in this together, so we'd love for you to JOIN US and be part of a motorsport industry revolution. 

our MEMBERS are motorsport EXPERTS & influencers

 

We know what it's like to be in the motorsport industry. We know about the long hours, the blood, sweat and tears, the weekends on the road chasing the dream. The agony and the ecstasy, the highs and the lows, the elation and the exhaustion. We also know that it takes a huge network of people to make things happen in this world.

That's why we created The Motorsport Collective.

A lot of motorsport industry associations are only aimed at competitors or the engineering trade - or those with huge budgets. Wouldn't it be better to bring together the wider motorsport community to share our expertise, make new contacts and talk about our stories together? We think so and our huge list of members agree, too.

Looking for inspiration for your racing career? Want to learn how to market your brand better? Need to get some advice on how to run your team, business or project? Or just fancy meeting up with our big motorsport family every couple of months to catch up with old friends and make new contacts? We'd love to have you.

We ARE The Motorsport Collective.

networking. it's not a dirty word.

We admit it: we hate networking events. They're normally pretty boring, take place in terrible venues and the speakers just want to sell their latest product. But, we all know we should be doing it to help drive our business or career forward. Surely, though, we can have fun at the same time and not have to wear a name badge? 

no name badges-no suit and tie-just good conTACTS

WE'RE GIVING SOMETHING BACK, TOO.

We know how lucky we are to be able to work and play in such a vibrant, exciting industry like motorsport. We also know how important it is to give something back, too. That's why we encourage our members to donate motorsport items to raise funds for our chosen charity each year. In 2016, we supported The Movember Foundation.

F1 BRITISH GRAND PRIX PARTY

We couldn't resist holding an event during the week of the famed Formula One British Grand Prix - so we took over the luxury private country estate, Aynhoe Park, to celebrate the circus coming to town. One of the quirkiest venues around, our members mingled with each other among unique taxidermy and modern art to hear David Brabham talk all about Project Brabham - his pioneering, crowd-sourced motorsport project.

 

 

Yacht party @ Monaco F1

Our partner, MKS Hospitality, are experts in the finer things in life and we we're thrilled to invite our members on board one of their luxury yachts in Monaco harbour after the Formula One practice sessions this year.

Members mingled with racing aficionados in the heart of motorsport's most glamorous event, with new connections made and old friendships reacquainted over Prosecco and pasta!
