|The bodies are working together from now until April to develop a new `whole sport plan` for the next 5 years, with the aim of getting more people involved in motorsport at every level, whether that be competing, spectating or volunteering.
The independent sports consultancy Performance Matters (a division of Leisure Partners Ltd.) has been commissioned to lead the consultation process across the entire sport. Performance Matters has conducted similar processes in cricket, golf, equestrian, and has considerable experience of working for national sports agencies such as UK Sport, Sport England, SkillsActive, and London 2012.
The voice of all those who participate, spectate and volunteer in motorsport is vital to the development of this new plan. In addition to this we would like to hear from those who are not currently participating.
The survey is being circulated as widely as possible in order to collate current opinion. It has been designed to be completed in no more than five minutes and to be submitted back to us electronically.
Please contribute by clicking on the link below. All responses are anonymous under the Market Research Society Code of Conduct and should be submitted by a closing date of 16 March 2007.
