News from Motorsport Stats
Motorsport Stats was appointed as the FIA’s Official Supplier of motorsport results and statistics database services in May 2019, chared with the task of creating the federation’s detailed and rich historical record of racing and rallying results.
The new FIA results website in its initial release will cover 17 FIA championships, including a comprehensive history of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship from 1950 onwards and a full record of all other FIA World Championships backed up with results from defunct or superseded series in sports cars, touring cars and rally. The scope of results will be progressively enhanced over the term of the agreement.
Motorsport Stats will be developing its modular front-end results website, its underlying database and APIs in order that the FIA can document and record both their history as well as the future results of their senior championships. The project will ensure the sport’s records are accurately and systematically stored for interest, research and posterity.

Motorsport Stats released the first stage in a new-gen multi-series website at the start of the 2019 Formula 1 testing season in February. Spanning 30 of the world’s leading motorsport championships, from IndyCar in the US, to MotoGP on two wheels, to WRC and WRX off road and significant national series such BTCC, the platform provides detailed, drillable results and statistics dating back to the start of NASCAR and 500cc World Motorcycle Championship in 1949.
The modular front end platform is powered by the Motorsport Stats DB (which holds data for 515 racing series and records for 71,000 drivers) via the MSS API. The website is a demonstration of capability for promoters, teams and federations who require their motorsport history to be curated, managed and presented on their digital estates.
Behind MSS DB is a team of data collectors working in three locations around the world, collecting results from approximately 50 motorsport events every week, providing a seamless set of updates around the clock.
