Last year, we introduced Survey Saturdays. We put together a survey about piracy in motorsport, and promoted it for a month...and got six replies. From the feedback we had, nobody wanted to put their email addresses on a survey about piracy. Unfortunately, the choice is ask for emails or be trolled in the free comment boxes.
This iteration of Survey Saturdays is to gauge whether what we have planned for our Young Driver Program is relevant to the audience's needs. We have a preliminary plan to bring more people (note the gender-neutral word) into the sport at an age when they can make a career of racing. This will initially take the form of simulator racing, rather than IRL racing, because we will be gathering data from the cohort for an academic research project on learning times in racing.
We aim to have a 50-50 spit of male and female drivers. This is important for our experimental design, since there is currently no work on women in racing. There is a non-research project running concurrently to the research project, and this is what we are asking for feedback about.
Your opinion is important to us. We would like to make something that is tailored for our audience's needs, so we have to dig a little deeper into what your needs are. We will treat your details with respect and confidentiality, and use your input to adjust the structures and design of our young driver program.
Here is the link! We look forward to hearing from you.
