As the global charity of worldwide motor sport, we play a key role in financing cutting-edge safety research. The halo, HANS, high speed barriers, the F1 helmet, wheel tethers and racing car crash tests: we’ve helped to deliver them all. Through funding for medical specialists, race marshals, and grassroots safety training developing the next generation of young racers – boys and girls - the FIA Foundation supports the FIA’s ‘vision zero’ to eliminate death and serious injury in motor sport.

Taking Action

Taking Action

The FIA’s safety research team is charged with finding technical solutions to keep the governing body’s motor sport championships safe at all levels. The FIA Foundation provides funding support for this objective. From circuit safety design to fire-retardant clothing, from racing car aerodynamics to rally car roll cages, we resource the safety solutions.

Motor sport is powered by volunteers, enthusiasts who provide race management, marshalling and rescue services at countless events across the world. Regular training and mentoring are vital. We support the information flow from global medical conferences to local training sessions, funding both FIA and national ASN (motor sport clubs) activities.
