Corporate Social Responsibility
Delta Motorsports CSR
Motor sport is not just about cars and competition; despite common misconceptions, the sport can play an important role in society, not just in terms of the economy and high performance engineering, but also as a responsible member of communities across the country.
The National Curriculum (and its equivalent) requires that children are taught how to identify a risk and how to manage that risk.
Risk Management is something that we do every day in motor sport, ensuring that the risks inherent in the sport are minimized to an acceptable level through regulations, technological development and training.
Delta is committed to ensuring that motor sport makes a significant contribution to the Road Safety agenda, both by raising awareness and by providing a legitimate outlet for enjoyable fun in a motor car.
Young males aged between 18 and 32 continue to be massively overrepresented in road incidents and casualty statistics, and are notoriously difficult to reach with safety messages. Motor sport offers an exciting platform that can communicate key messages to these people, emphasising that there is a right time and place to drive competitively and it is not on the public highway.
By drawing attention to the safety features of competition cars, the regulations governing events and the absence of other road users, we can effect a change of mind-set in the young driver. We also see that high profile drivers can become excellent role models for responsible driving and have a great deal of credibility among the target demographic.
