Twelve year on, the RACE TECH World Motorsport Symposium has built a reputation as the most prestigious international event and forum organised for the who's who of motorsport engineering at all levels to get together under one roof and freely discuss issues specific to them as well as being a place where new ideas are aired.
Chaired every year by Audi Sport Engine Development Director Ulrich Baretzky and Formula 1 Aerodynamicist John Iley, who take time out of their extremely busy schedules to run these two fantastic days along with the RACE TECH magazine team, it was recently described as the 'Davos of Motorsport' whilst the awards dinner was coined by an Italian journalist as the motorsport industry equivalent of the Nobel Prize.
Over the past few years the format has changed so that the the two days take place in the style of a motorsport cabinet meeting where everyone who attends has a voice. With fewer speakers, a panel of international senior motorsport executives and a forum that generates much more open debate, the proceedings are also governed by Chatham House rules, so that all attendees can speak freely.
