Driven by Diversity Podcast


Richard Morris

Season 2, Ep. 9

Taking to the track in the Praga for the 2021 Britcar Endurance Championship, following a successful career to date, Richard Morris isn’t our only guest on the podcast who first caught the racing bug at a friend’s karting party. Creating valuable relationships and building a strong network is something he prides himself on, which in recent years led him to become a works driver for sports prototype team, Spire Sports Cars. In this conversation, Richard candidly shares with us how it had been harder for him to be open about his sexuality in motorsport, than in other areas of his life - horrifically even at one point having had homophobic abuse written on his kart in permanent marker. Committed to championing the LGBTQ+ community both on and off the track, in 2019 Richard co-founded the innovative movement and network, Racing Pride, which strives to promote inclusivity within motorsport.
