The Global Institute for Motor Sport Safety is an international organisation based in Switzerland that undertakes research to improve motor sport safety worldwide.

It is wholly-owned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile, motor sport’s governing body, but is a separate legal entity, enabling it to have the freedom to undertake all types of safety research work across motor sport, from professional categories to grassroots racing.


Through innovation and excellence in safety research, the Global Institute aims to provide motor sport with the means to operate in as safe a manner as possible, and where relevant, promote the use of this research on public roads and society in general.


To lead the way in reducing fatalities and serious injuries within global motor sport at all levels.
