Invitation to Tender: Research and Programme Design Consultant – Inclusion

Thursday 11 August 2022

Motorsport UK is inviting interested parties to tender for the design and build of a positive action programme that supports underrepresented young people in motorsport.  

The programme seeks to achieve: 

  1. Increased Racial Diversity within Motorsport, with 50% or more from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
  2. Bringing the Girls on Track (GOT UK) Programme to a secondary school audience.

As an inaugural recipient of a charitable grant from Ignite Partnership, a joint charitable initiative between Sir Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, Motorsport UK is looking to take learnings and knowledge from the running of Girls on Track UK to expand its impact and to develop a programme to increase motorsport participation and involvement of Black, Asian, individuals from other minority ethnic groups and economically disadvantaged backgrounds under the age of 24. 

Motorsport UK is seeking a consultant or company to engage with the community through best practice research methods and knowledge to support the team at Motorsport UK to design a programme with maximum impact. This will involve working with members of the community, potential partners and the in-house team. This will culminate in four pilot events across two inner city locations and utilise feedback metrics and research to pitch a scaled up programme for more funding in 2023.  

For GOT UK it is refining our impact methodology and looking at pilots we have done with secondary school aged young women to make this an additional offer to schools.  

This is a unique opportunity to work with Motorsport UK and create programmes that support underrepresented young people into motorsport, and the successful consultant or company will be joining the project at an exciting point in its conceptualisation and development, with considerable scope to shape the parameters of the project, particularly during the research and piloting phases.


Interested parties are invited to submit an expression of interest and questions to Motorsport UK by 22 August 2022 and tender proposals must then be submitted to Motorsport UK by 2 September 2022 (the Closing Date).
