Encouraging a positive atmosphere, on and off the track

The Sport

Race ‘n’ Respect

Race ‘n’ Respect is a code of conduct for karting, junior circuit racing, junior drag racing, junior rallycross, junior autocross and British F4, designed to create a positive atmosphere both on and off the track.

The campaign is underpinned by the Racing Code that applies not only to competitors but also to officials, organisers, parents, guardians and teams. It is based on strong values:

  • Respect
  • Fair play
  • Self-control
  • Good manners
  • Sincerity.

All participants receive Race ‘n’ Respect stickers, badges, lanyards and wristbands to wear and display with pride.

The Racing Code has also been adopted by the National Karting Association (NKA), which represents indoor venues and ‘arrive-and-drive’ karting.

“I first launched Race ‘n’ Respect in Bambino and Cadet karting at Autosport International, and for it to be so successful and expanded across all karting and into junior circuit and drag racing is a really important step. I am sure drivers and teams all realise from an early age that racing is not just about winning – it’s also a fun and social family sport for so many competitors. That’s what Race ‘n’ Respect promotes and it’s why I’m right behind the campaign”
Allan McNish, Le Mans 24 Hours winner and 2013 FIA World Endurance Champion
