The Racing and Performance Forum at the 2015 SEMA Show will feature insight on the direction, relevance and importance of motorsports and technology to the future of racing and performance businesses.

Racing and performance lifestyles are critical to OEMs and the continued relevance and innovation within the specialty-equipment community for both longtime members as well as next-generation racers, enthusiasts and fans. Ford’s latest GT, Raptor and Mustang, GM’s new Camaro and Toyota’s TRD Pro Series vehicles are excellent examples of OEM-aftermarket collaboration and technology transfer from the track to the street.
But, what is the future of racing and performance? Are today’s youth having an impact on grassroots? Are they impacting professional motor racing and performance technologies, series, sponsorships and marketing trends? Are the balance of performance formulas working to drive innovation and growth in the industry, or driving its demise?
Part of the Vehicle Technology Briefing Seminars at the 2015 SEMA Show, the Racing and Performance Forum features frontline experts providing insight on the direction, relevance and importance of motorsports and technology to the future of racing and performance businesses.
