‘The Black Book Race Forum was an excellent opportunity to meet with a wide variety of people involved in Motorsport and F1 in particular. The speakers were of high calibre and their insight on the current state of play was very interesting and informative. 

The presence of the Lotus F1 team plus their live demonstration of an F1 car demonstrating power-slides at close quarters was also quite something. I look forward to attending next year.’

– Anthony Cox, MD, Pro-Tech Recruitment


‘The Black Book Race Forum provided us with a great platform to network with industry insiders and listen to some frank and fascinating panel discussions about the state of F1.’

‘I thought the event was superb. The forum was attended by a solid mix of rights holders and suppliers to the industry. This is an event I will definitely attend again. As an industry that is high on our list of priorities, I highly recommend the Blackbook Race Forum if one is trying to gain traction in the industry.’

– Wasim Haq, Odgers and Berndtson


‘Thanks for organizing the Forum. Lets ensure we have WRC on the agenda for 2015.’

– Oliver Ciesla, FIA World Rally Championship


‘It was a pleasure to attend your inaugural event and I thoroughly enjoyed giving my interview. It is even more rewarding to know that other people found it entertaining and I hope, a little informative.

I enjoyed the occasion and in fact, would have preferred to have stayed a little bit longer, but I had to dash off to another meeting, which was a shame. Not only was the weather very kind for you, but the charming venue, and an English cricket match amongst the skyscrapers of the City was quite unique and I would have enjoyed being there for longer.’

– Chris Aylett, CEO, Motorsport Industry Association


‘It was very good to be a part of the first Black Book Race Forum in London. It is very good to have a high-profile industry event in the motor racing environment. Very good moderation, true insights into the sport and a very good networking opportunity. The Black Book Race Forum is certainly something to establish itself over the years. We look forward to participating again in 2015 for another great networking opportunity.’

– Heike Grunwald, Sauber F1 Team


‘We want to thank you, David and all the folks over at Blackbook for putting on an outstanding F1 Business Forum last month. The location and setting was perfect… the program, the attendees, outstanding… the speakers and topics discussed were right on the mark! It turned out to be a great opportunity for us to meet and develop relationships with so many others in the businesses that surround Formula 1.

We look forward to another great F1 Race Forum from Blackbook in 2015.’

– John C Foti, President, Grand Prix Investors Fund
