A society with equal opportunity leads us to the hypothesis of a society wherein no one is discriminated against. The Hamilton Commission Report seeks to recommend a pathway towards ensuring inclusivity of the black community in the sphere of Formula 1 and motorsports in general. The report envisages expanding the scope of career opportunities for black individuals in motorsports and its allied sectors. Even though the situation in the UK, the focal point of the Commission’s report, is not equilateral to that of India, we can still draw lessons from the findings and recommendations of the Committee’s report and implement the very ethos of the report into the Indian context to ensure that Indians too get equal and non-discriminatory access to career opportunities in motorsports. In pursuance of this, the authors of this paper shall compare legislative provisions in India and the UK, in the domain of equality and anti-discrimination, whilst also isolating the findings and the recommendations of the Hamilton Commission Report in the contextual relevance of India. The authors shall also emphasize the importance of legislative impetus in securing equal opportunity for Indians who aim to have a career in motorsports whilst enumerating a detailed list of suggestions that shall tie in with the overarching theme of this paper, i.e., transforming the learnings of the Hamilton Commission report into legislative action in the Indian context to secure equality of opportunity for Indians who want to pursue a career in motorsports.
