F1 and Tottenham Hotspur’s Partnership Will Expand Career Opportunities
F1 and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have committed to a 15-year strategic relationship that will witness the delivery of the first-ever in-stadium electric karting facility and London’s longest indoor track.
With two National Karting Association-approved tracks (one for adults and one for children), the state-of-the-art stadium complex could host the national karting championship races in the future.
Formula One and Tottenham Hotspur have agreed to collaborate on the creation of a new driver academy program. The initiative’s overarching goals are to broaden the talent pool in motorsport and assist in the identification of potential F1 drivers of the future.
Formula 1 and the Club will collaborate to bring instructional programming into local schools, with the goal of introducing young people to motorsport and highlighting potential future paths in fields like engineering and computer science.
The facility will offer both interactive motorsport activities as well as food and beverage shops, and it will be located underneath the South Stand of the stadium.
In addition, one of the primary goals of the partnership will be to expand the number of apprenticeships and career opportunities available to young people in the community. Another objective of the partnership will be to increase the percentage of underrepresented groups and women working in the motorsport industry.
In addition, as a component of the collaboration, Formula One and Tottenham Hotspur will work together on sustainability programs that encourage responsible behavior toward the environment.
The pledge made by Formula 1 to reach net zero carbon emissions by the year 2030 is highly congruent with the goals that Tottenham Hotspur has set for themselves as a signatory of the UN Sports for Climate Action Framework’s ‘Race to Zero’ initiative, which is to halve their greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2030 and reach net zero emissions by the year 2040.
