Long-Term Talent Development in Motorsports

Long-Term Talent Development in Motorsports

To produce more motorcycle racers, Spain, Italy, and Japan consider it important. Racers’ contributions to the production of bikes are substantial. In exchange, this benefits the economy by providing work prospects for young people. Identification of talent starts with the identification of potential racers to the highest level, which is MotoGP, at the pocket bike level. As both a student and a racer, this paper explores the dualist nature of young talents. The goal of the study is to identify the main elements in this field that influence their career growth. The research used a qualitative approach and interviewed two racers (13-19 years old) who took part in the Malaysian Super Series and Cub Prix and two owners of the racing team. The knowledge was obtained over a span of three months. In order to recognise major trends in the nurture of motorsport talents, the knowledge was analysed. The findings revealed the main aspects of motorsports talent growth. In the identification and development of talent and in the potential career of youth talent as professional racers, attributes and enthusiasm are necessary. Their engagement in the long-term production of motorsport talent can be affected by collaborations with educational institutions (in terms of information sharing through research activities). There is a growing need for academic support to ensure the successful long-term development of youth racers from the first instance of identification to the professional level. In addition, variables such as preparation, diet, time management, and discipline are also major determinants of the success of a youth racer. Most interviewees acknowledged that racers faced career difficulties as they received insufficient and inappropriate advice to become a professional racer in the final stage of the socialisation process and specialisation. The opportunities in motor sports are big, and they need to be based on too much attention. Some concerns involve the ministry and independent organisations to take action, which will impact policy making and activities within the track.
