Motor racing sports, comprising cars, motorbikes and off-road vehicles, have long been popular in Australia. They can range from high profile professional international events such as Formula One held in Melbourne in front of an international audience to small regional rallies using amateur drivers and conventional vehicles. Australians have enjoyed motor sports for many decades and have competed well internationally e.g. Wayne Gardner, Casey Stoner and Mick Doohan were all Grand Prix world champions. Domestically the Bathurst 1000 has long been the premier high-profile motor sport event commanding large audiences, loyal fans and a lot of research investment by motor sports companies and vehicle manufacturers. The drivers can become celebrities and household names in their own right. Examples include Peter Brock and Alan Moffat.
There are numerous competitions held each year throughout the country: Formula Ford, V8 Supercars, Australian Rally Championships, Super Touring Championships, GT3, Utes, Production Cars, Porsches, Superkarts, endurance events and Formula 2.

Due to the high speeds and high-octane fuels, motorsports can be very dangerous and have claimed many lives, not only those driving the vehicles but of spectators as well. Regulating bodies need to continually update their rules and safety standards to accommodate new technology, incident statistics, and accident investigation results. Sixteen driver deaths have occurred at Mt Panorama alone.
Motor racing experts are essential in cases involving injuries and deaths that occur during practice and in competition to investigate what happened (e.g. driver or crew error, or mechanical, safety barrier or regulatory failure) and to help determine liability.Sample Reports
