If driving becomes autonomous, will anyone care about racing?

The ongoing disruption of the automobile industry will have a knock-on effect for motor sport. With the rise of on-demand transport and autonomous cars, the sport can no longer rely on car fans becoming race fans. So how will motorsport and motoring maintain their symbiotic relationship in this brave new world? Leading figures from the automotive and motorsport industries will discuss.

  • Should the future of motorsport match the future of the road car or are we at a point of divergence?

  • Does Tech even matter? What is more important, modern tech or close racing. Can both co-exist?

  • Does a sponsor or manufacturer want to be involved with a low-tech, high-action series?

  • Is technology a force for good or ill in racing as a form of entertainment?

  • Should motorsport rely on manufacturers?
