This infobox is used for any drivers with significant current or recent participations outside Formula One, the WRC, or NASCAR as part of an effort to streamline the range of infobox templates for motorsport articles. It is flexible enough to allow use with other templates for drivers with multi-discipline careers. See WikiProject Motorsport for more templates.

Use as a child template

This infobox may be used to create a genre-specific section within {{Infobox person}}, for cases where a person may be notable in more than one field. To do so, call the template as follows:

{{Infobox person
| name =
| image =
| caption =
| birth_name =
| birth_date =
| birth_place =
| module =
{{Infobox racing driver|child=yes
| parameter-1 =
| parameter-2 =
| parameter-3 =
| parameter-4 =
}}
}}

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583).

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.
