Volunteer today for racing charities!

Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

Racing With Pride

area of interest


Racing With Pride

LGBT+ Awareness and Inclusion E-Learning



Over 100 individuals joined the network in the first week of it launching. It is expected to grow as it is continuously promoted.



Racing With Pride has been developed by the DiRSG’s dedicated voluntary LGBT+ sub-group. It is envisaged that it will be led by it’s members for it’s members. Racing With Pride will: • Support: offer a safe space for LGBT+ people and allies to meet, receive support, have fun and enjoy racing online and in person. • Raise awareness: promote a better understanding of LGBT+ inclusion to ensure racing is everyone’s sport, encouraging all to step up as allies. • Engagement: provide a platform for the sport’s LGBT+ community to have a collective voice in shaping the industry’s future LGBT+ activity.
