Gaining work experience
Posted by: MKRGF - Posted: January 31, 2021
Just wanted to make a post about my past experience and what I want to achieve…
I studied Level 3 Extended BTEC Motorsport at Myerscough college but a year into this I applied and eventually got an electronics apprenticeship at Red Bull Racing F1, where I worked in both the manufacturing and test & inspection electronics department and ended up making parts that were on the cars during race weekends. I left this apprenticeship after a year and a half in order to start university and get a Motorsport Engineering degree, which I started September just gone. I will also be doing a Masters in this subject. In the future I want to go back into F1 and hopefully eventually on the race team in some form.
I don’t have much at the track experience which I would love to change whilst I am at uni so am looking for any kind of practical work experience at the moment! I hope some of you will be able to give me tips on how to gain experience 🙂
