Welcome to the Setting up & Managing Your Challenge Race Team Guide!
This course is designed to help you think about and action all of the important areas when it comes to setting up and developing your Student Motorsport Challenge racing team!
It’s really important that you think about how you are going to set up and crucially operate your racing team. Getting the right team structure and people in place in the various roles that are required when running a racing team can mean the difference between success and failure. These important first steps will help you and your colleagues work better together and will help you start on the right track when running your entry within the Student Motorsport Challenge.
We’ll cover a range of areas from professionalism, team structure, roles required, goal setting right through to areas such as documentation and post-event analysis.
Points to Remember:
The information and guidance found within has been developed and written to be mindful of and include colleges and universities with differing skills and knowledge levels within the motorsport industry and education, so please be aware we’ve covered a wide range and level of competencies when we developed our guides. We’re confident that there’s also something here to learn and take away for everyone whether you’re an enthusiast, perhaps a student enrolled on a motorsport course, maybe an amateur racecar driver looking to build and race their very own racecar, right through to a well-seasoned racing team looking to venture into a new racing competition.
The lessons within this course may refer to and also be linked to several other documents in our overall resources including those entered into the Student Motorsport Challenge.
Important: Whilst we make every effort to provide accurate information and guidance it is your responsibility to ensure you work safely within your organisation and that your race car (entry) meets the technical regulations set, by following and adhering to the BRSCC CityCar Cup Championship and Technical regulations.
Updates, revisions and additions are ongoing as we expand and improve our guides throughout the inaugural Student Motorsport Challenge. Additions to images and the information is an ongoing process and changes are being carried out throughout our guides and lessons. Thank you for your requests and keep a lookout for new information and guidance.
We welcome suggestions, feedback, requests and will keep you updated on corrections, revisions, updates and any additions to come!
Best wishes for the start or continuation of your motorsport career!
