The top English club Tottenham Hotspur wants to benefit from the Formula 1 boom. As the Londoners and the top motorsport class announced on Tuesday, they are entering into a 15-year strategic partnership. A state-of-the-art go-kart track is to be completed below the south stand of Spurs Stadium by the fall.
The aim is to find a “new generation of motorsport talents” and to promote them, according to the joint statement. In the future, championship races are also to be held on the kart track, which is generally regarded as the most important entry level for motorsport enthusiasts.
“As we continue to grow our sport, partnering with world-renowned brands like Tottenham Hotspur allows us to bring Formula 1 and motorsport to a new and more diverse audience,” said Formula 1 Chief Executive Stefano Domenicali.
A central point will also be “to create training and career options for local young people and to bring more diversity to motorsport, especially with regard to women and underrepresented groups,” says the statement.
