There is an acute awareness that sports that involve high speed carry a high risk, and this is certainly applicable to motorsport. When most people suffer accidents at work they know that factors outside of their control are usually to blame, and this is often the reason for most accidents in motorsport.
When involving yourself in sports, the risk of slips, trips and falls is dependent on the actions of the individual, but with a vehicle involved it means there is a lot more to consider. Whilst this is usually accounted for, as there is a great deal of precaution taken by those who participate in motorsport, there is scope for accidents that aren’t your fault.
This list gives five potential accidents that can occur when people take part in motorsport, whether it be regularly or just on a one-off occasion
- Crashing into another vehicle or the track.
- The car not functioning properly.
- Debris from the track affecting the vehicle.
- The car being unable to handle high speeds.
- Muscles becoming strained due to unexpected overexertion, leading to a road accident.
