Local racing driver Linton Stutely has joined forces with some of the sport's biggest names to promote all forms of motorsport to a wider audience.
Linton is backing this campaign by having official GoMotorsport.net stickers on his Formula Ford Championship racing car.
Linton from Hitchin said: "I'm lucky enough to be fulfilling my dreams but I know there are hundreds of others out there that have little or no idea how to get involved in motorsport.
"It's not the same as buying a football or cricket bat and playing in the park, but getting into motorsport is nowhere near as hard as many imagine and it doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive. There is lots of motorsport in which you can safely compete in your own road car, for instance."
The Go Motorsport campaign launch took place earlier this summer and was attended by Lewis Hamilton.
The campaign has been set up by the Motor Sports Association (MSA), governing body of motorsport in the UK.
