The Checkered Flag was set up in August 2009 and is dedicated to providing daily news and features from around the world of motor sport. Since the launch of the site it has gained a number of regular contributors and photographers who help cover the action from the front lines.

The main focus of The Checkered Flag is to provide coverage of upcoming talent, something which is sometimes missed by the general media. This upcoming talent is not only confined to drivers and teams but also our contributors, giving them a platform to develop their skills trackside.

In addition providing coverage of support race series and not just the top tier series, the site also helps future driving stars to gain some much needed media attention.

For 2022 we continue to build those partnerships working directly with series organisers and manufacturers to bring high quality content to the fans. If you are in the motor sport industry and wish for us to cover your event or write an article, please get in contact with us.
