pit lane reporter Louise Goodman has become the latest Formula One figure to sign up as an ambassador of the MSA's Go Motorsport
The initiative, launched last year at the McLaren Technology Centre by F1 champion Lewis Hamilton, seeks to increase involvement in motorsport at all levels – from simply going to events as a spectator to becoming an actual competitor.
Sir Frank Williams, Jenson Button, Damon Hill and David Coulthard are amongst the other F1 personalities to have pledged their support for the programme, while figures such as multiple-WTCC title winner Andy Priaulx and Ford WRC boss Malcolm Wilson are also Go Motorsport
“It's a great honour to be joining a such a roster of famous faces who are all supporting this first class initiative set up by the MSA,” Goodman said. “It's something I really believe in, too. Millions of people have been inspired by watching Lewis's brilliance in F1 on the television, but few understand just how easy it is for them to have a go - and how many other events are serving up great live entertainment much closer to home.
"I know from my own limited experiences that you can have a lot of fun without splashing too much cash. What's more, if you don't want to get behind the wheel, there are plenty of other opportunities for both men and women to experience a similar buzz by working close to the action. Trackside marshals, for instance, not only play a vital role in putting on events but also enjoy the best seats in the house!"
