Safety is paramount in motorsports. Key measures include wearing approved helmets and fire-resistant suits, using HANS devices (Head and Neck Support), adhering to vehicle safety standards (like roll cages), and following strict track safety protocols.
Environmental concerns are increasingly shaping motorsports, leading to the development of more sustainable practices like electric racing series (e.g., Formula E), use of biofuels, and efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of events and teams.
Fans can engage in motorsports by attending races, participating in fan clubs, joining online communities, and engaging in motorsports video games or simulators. Volunteering at local racing events or enrolling in amateur racing schools are also popular ways to get involved.
