The World Accident Database is a study that brings together data from accidents around the world, from Formula One to karting, into a searchable, secure and confidential database that researchers can use to accurately identify areas for improvement in motor sport safety.

The Database will be used by the FIA’s 139 National Sporting Authorities (ASNs) around the world to add data from any serious fatal accidents that may occur across all motor sport disciplines.

The data gathered includes acceleration and speed levels, detailed descriptions of the accidents, as well as the medical repercussions for the drivers involved.

The full launch of the Database was conducted in May 2015 following a successful two-year pilot involving eight ASNs.
