There's a famous quote, attributed to mass-production car pioneer Henry Ford, that states motor-racing started five minutes after the second car was built.
When you think about it, that wasn't so long ago. Homo Sapiens have been around a couple of hundred thousand years, so in that context a century and a third is not enough to build an unbreakable relationship. Humanity's relationship with the motor car is not immutable, much as some within motorsport might have convinced themselves that it is.
It's essential those involved in its governance and operation in particular do not neglect outreach to ensure the next generation of potential motorsport fans engages with it - and that means being willing to adapt.
