Last June NEO Endurance announced the extension of the partnership with the Motorsport Safety Foundation. The partnership between the two organizations started last year with the start of the NEO Endurance Series.
MSF has been supportive from the start and the partnership between the two is getting stronger every moment. MSF has been impressed by the support from a unique direction. The support from the sim racing community will grow in the coming months. NES has its own support series: Gathering of Tweakers Endurance Series (GES). Both NEO and Gathering of Tweakers iRacing will raise money for MSF together next season.
Both series will have various ways to raise money. NEO will participate in MSF’s program called “% for Safety”. $6 of the entry fee of each team will go to MSF. GoT will also donate an amount of money. In addition, both series will donate the money raised by roster changes. There is a fee of $5 per driver for changing the roster during the season. The full amount of this fee will go MSF at the end of the season.
Besides these initiatives by the series, both NEO and GoT encourages everybody to support MSF by donating. Any amount is welcome! Go to motorsport-safety.com/donate and help to improve the sport all sim racers love.
About Motorsport Safety Foundation
The Motorsport Safety Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving safety standards in motorsport. It is a community where members can come together and have a voice, a place to share safety concerns and collaborate on research. MSF encourages active participation from all members who share our view that motorsport can and should be safer.
The charity was founded in honor of Sean Edwards, a professional race car driver who tragically died while coaching from the passenger seat at an Australian race track. Sean crashed into a reinforced concrete wall that was not properly equipped with the minimum safety barriers to dissipate the impact.
Issues like these are what the Motorsport Safety Foundation continuously works to change: fixable problems that can prevent another driver, crew marshal, or even fan from serious injury or death.
