Dunlop Tyres - Motorsport Safety Fund|
“It might be a specific model of car, some on-track action, a street scene, celebrating fans at a BTCC event or a view of a fantastic drive - we want drivers to send us images of whatever they are passionate about. “The Motorsport Safety Fund is a fitting and worthy charity for Dunlop to link with on this project with a cause that is very close to our heart.”

Motorsport Safety Fund supported by Dunlop Tyres
Chief executive, Stuart Turner said: "The Motorsport Safety Fund is delighted that Dunlop are supporting the fund with this book capturing the spirit of the sport. We will devote any funds raised from it to helping keep the sport safe through films and publications for the countless volunteers who help make it happen." The Motorsport Safety Fund is a registered charity formed in 1974 to help improve safety in motorsport. It does this through the annual Watkins Lecture and various publications and films on marshalling, fire fighting, rescue and first aid.
It all started in 1888, when a small boy struggled to ride a tricycle with solid rubber wheels. John Boyd Dunlop grew tired of watching his son struggle with the cumbersome tires and patented his own design - marking the birth of what we now know as today’s modern-day tire. The legend grew by leaps and bounds - and RPMs. What started as a tricycle tire grew to become a racing radial for 200 mph motorsport vehicles, way ahead of the times. The Dunlop name became as popular in racing circles as that notorious checkered flag. So here we are today, thriving on that motorsports heritage. Blending the latest technology with OE experience. Taking everything we learn on the race tracks and incorporating it into tires for the most discerning drivers.
