Current Status: Undergraduate

Studying at: National Motorsport Academy


I am a student studying Motorsport Engineering with the National Motorsport Academy. I am looking for work experience with a race team, ideally based close to Bournemouth but am willing to travel for race meetings. My preference for volunteering would be to gain experience with working on the car with other mechanics throughout the race meeting, and to gain insight into the adjustments to the car set up, but am happy to be an extra pair of hands to help wherever is needed in order to learn. I am currently volunteering in a local independent garage to improve my skillset when working on cars, with the aim to be more confident when introduced to the motorsport environment. I am required to gain 80 hours experience for a later module but would like to gain as much experience as possible.
