1st Meeting with the Volunteers of the motorsport2020.cat Project

The 1st Meeting with the Volunteers of the motorsport2020.cat Project was held last Thursday 16 February in the afternoon. A total of 20 people attended the event that took place in the facilities of ACCIÓ in Barcelona.

Project Manager, Ian Planas, welcomed all attendants to the meeting and gave the floor to the President of the Automotive Industry Cluster of Catalonia (CIAC), Mr. Vicenç Aguilera, who made a presentation of the motorsport2020.cat initiative, highlighting the outstanding role of the volunteers and describing the way in which each working group is going to be organised within each of the projects.

Then, the 4 most important projects, on which motorsport2020.cat will be focussing in 2017, were presented:

  • Communication: creation of a website, brand, communication portal and a coordination and leadership structure for Motorsport, with a single common calendar for all motorsports events in Catalonia.

Josep Mir: Clustermoto President and chairman of this working group

  • Kart Academy: a project organised by STA. Series of trials among students from Automotive Training Institutes and Schools.

Enric Boné: Responsible of the project (STA)

  • GREEN CARD: launch of the Off-road license and green areas to regulate the different routes

Josep Palà: Clustermoto Manager and chairman of this working group

  • BARCELONA MOTORSPORT SHOW: creation and promotion of an International Motorsport Trade Show and Congress together with Fira de Barcelona

Vicenç Aguilera: CIAC President and President of the Organising Committee

After the presentation of the 4 projects it was time for Questions and Requests, and the first distribution of the volunteers among the different working groups.

Soon we will be announcing the date of the second meeting with the volunteers for all those who were not able to attend, hoping to continue growing and making Motorsport in Catalonia grow, introducing the project to as many people related to Motorsport as possible.
