The motor sport division of sports consists of all sports that have to do with any kind of vehicle being raced. This generally means cars , motorcycles, and organizations such as Nascar, Formula 1, and Indysport.
The media represents these sports to the public in a positive and fantasy like fashion. It displays motor sports and racing as being high octane, exciting, and fun. This appeals to the men and young boys in the world and some of them aspire to race based on this representation by the media. On television it looks like racing is the most enjoyable sport in the world and all drivers are invincible.
What the media does not do is explain how dangerous the motor sports are. People see the car crashes on television but they are not being represented as they should be. The crashes are often shown in conjunction with hyped up music tracks and displayed like the drivers of these vehicles are having fun. Car crashes are not fun and hundreds of people die in them every day. It is not cool for a person’s vehicle to be covered in flames and on the verge of exploding. Yet, this is how the media portrays the sport of racing motor vehicles.
