With the recent disruption caused by Extinction Rebellion in London over the last few days, effectively brining the centre of London to a standstill while the authorities stand around doing nothing, and looking to cause more disruption tomorrow by blocking Heathrow Airport. How long will it be before they target a televised Motorsport event, either a GP, MotoGP, or IndyCar event? Will protesting at a televised event create more publicity for themselves and send manufacturers and sponsors running away from the sport? I wonder if circuits are prepared for protestors turning up and disrupting events, it would be interesting to see what the organisers could do,I imagine nothing and the event would be postponed.
At the moment the events in London and Europe look disorganised but in the US the Sunrise Movement looks more organised especially with the support of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and events may be targeted in the future to discourage manufactures and sponsors from getting involved, given how companies like to be seen as socially aware I don't think it would take much to distance themselves from motorsport.
It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
