Years 8-10 students were involved in an exciting careers talk about Motorsport.

The students selected had previously expressed an interest in motorsport / engineering or a related subject in their aspirations questionnaires. The presentation gave the students an insight that isn’t normally seen by fans.

The students found it hugely interesting and were most engrossed in the detailed talk about the world of motorsports engineering and how many other careers link in with this (despite the bitterly cold weather when viewing the sample car.

The presentation by Mr Parks, Team Manager of Maximum Motorsport, covered:

 Vehicles that the team races in
 BTCC (British touring car championship) British GT, European and world GT, TCR UK and TCR Europe, VW cup and Britcar
 The race weekend
 Formula 1 racing and the race team

Faye Banks, Careers / Aspirations Coordinator, said: “ The students found the informative careers talk on Motorsports most interesting and the car experience very exciting. I’m sure this experience will help to inspire future career aspirations in the industry.”
