Each year, the International Council of Motorsport Sciences’ (ICMS) Annual Congress works to disseminate scientific, medical and educational information related to human performance and safety parameters across all forms of racing.
In 2016, the ICMS once again presents its premier research-based conference, seminar and special event against the backdrop of the world’s ultimate showcase of new racing parts, technology and solutions—the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show.
Taking place December 7–8 at the Indiana Convention Center (ICC), the ICMS’ 26th Annual Congress will educate and inform international motorsports personnel, scientific and medical stakeholders, sanctioning body personnel, car designers and constructors, race team managers and drivers, and industry organizations on improving safety and performance for racers as well as highway drivers.
The conference curriculum covers educational modules including medicine and physiology, applied science, logistics and administration, and motorsports safety, and will be presented by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable practitioners from across the globe.
ICMS members have been instrumental in creating many of the life-saving procedures and products used throughout motorsports today.
There is a fee to attend the conference.
The second annual Race Track Safety Program (RTSP), presented in conjunction with the ICMS Annual Congress, takes place on Friday, December 9, at the ICC. This one-day seminar includes educational sessions as well as hands-on practical sessions and demonstrations geared especially toward local short tracks, road courses and drag strips around the US and Canada.
The target audience for this unique program consists of small race track operations personnel—in particular, Emergency Medical Services and Fire & Rescue team members—who will learn from experts in the field about the most efficient and safest procedures for responding to race track incidents.
There is a fee to attend the seminar.
And later that afternoon (December 9), from 4 to 5 p.m., some of the world’s most experienced safety response teams will demonstrate best practices and procedures during a special Race Track Safety Team Demonstration, which is open to all registered PRI Show attendees at no charge.
This demonstration will feature experts in their fields delivering the latest in safety response for the benefit of personnel responsible for on-track safety initiatives at various racing venues. Track owners and promoters, sanctioning body officials, track operations staff, team principals and managers, drivers and riders will benefit from the information presented in these demonstrations.
Safety applications in this team demonstration will involve multiple racing machines, including sprint car, modified, dirt late model, dragster, street/strip, and more for a broad understanding of how to provide optimal response to a verity of racing incidents.
