Max Mosley has a long career history associated with motor racing, beginning in the 1960s when he first achieved success at amateur level, racing Formula Two. Since then, Max worked as co-founder of March Engineering – one of the most successful manufacturers of racing cars throughout the 1970s and early 1980s – followed by a four-term stint as President of the FIA. Here he was responsible for not only the Formula One World Championship but also the World Rally Championship, and over 600 further international motor sport competitions and events.
Throughout his life, Max Mosley has demonstrated a particular commitment to improving safety standards for drivers both within a racing environment and on the world’s roads. While he is best known for his achievements in motor racing, Max has also spearheaded a number of safety campaigns, protecting the safety of motorists everywhere. As initiator and chairman of Euro NCAP from 1996 until 2004, Max was at the forefront of award-winning advances in crash testing and credited with advancing road safety in Europe by five years. In 2002 he set up the FIA Foundation, a charitable organisation that spends €10 million each year on advancing motor sport and road safety across the world. Max remains an FIA Foundation trustee to this day.
