The online Motor Sport Database provides access to over 10,000 motor racing results, over 7,600 racing driver profiles and 750 circuits (plus 1,400 different layouts). 

There is also an innovative function that allows users to compare and contrast statistics for all Formula 1 drivers, with the option to refine results by year or circuit.

The Motor Sport Database includes race results from A1GP to the Yellow Pages British Formula Atlantic Championship via Formula 1, IndyCars and NASCAR.

There are full results for senior championships, and the history of others includes details of race winners and champions. It also contains full written profiles of certain drivers’ careers.

The Database draws content from the newly redesigned and improved Archive, which was launched in 2013. The Archive features every issue in Motor Sport magazine's 92-year history and has undergone a revamp to offer users a vastly improved reading experience. 

Ed Foster, Online Editor of Motor Sport magazine, said: "While the database is ‘launched’ it is, and always will be, a work in progress with weekly updates, additional content and more series covered. It’s a very exciting time for Motor Sport.” 

Marketing Director Gerard O’Brien added: "The Motor Sport Database is currently free to use and is a perfect fit for our ongoing digital content innovation, accompanying perfectly the fully-searchable online Motor Sport Archive, covering 92 years of motor racing history.

“Our aim is to deliver an online experience that all motor sport fans around the world can enjoy and keep coming back to for more by offering a one-stop shop in motor sport content.”
