Networks of learning : how motorsport companies collaborate and share knowledge: evidence from the UK and Italian motorsport industries

Francesca Mariotti, Rick Delbridge, James Stancombe

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The motorsport industry is a high value-added and highly innovative business sector. The UK’s leading racing car manufacturers are world class centres of research, development and engineering. However, individual firms in the sector do not have the range and depth of capabilities to compete independently in motorsport’s dynamic and competitive environment. Industry attention has therefore progressively focused on how networks of collaborating firms can work together to develop new products, improve business processes and reduce costs.
This report presents findings from a three year Cardiff Business School study which examined the ways in which firms collaborate as part of wider networks. The research involved gathering data from over 120 firms in the UK and Italian motorsport sectors.
