Motorsports Workshop

The Motorsports Workshop is a dedicated space created to support our motorsport programmes, catering for race cars, eco cars and a superbike race team.

Students carry out the vast majority of work themselves with assistance from technicians. The premise is the same with all such activities, the aim is to gain real design and production experience.
