College of West Anglia showcases its new motorsports degree at the NEC

MOTORSPORT students from the College of West Anglia rubbed shoulders with industry professionals when they manned a stand at Autosport International - Europe’s largest trade show - at the NEC in Birmingham.

The students from the Isle campus, Wisbech, saw first-hand the latest developments in the industry, inquired about career opportunities and promoted their race team.

Lecturer John Paul Latham said: “Autosport International is the best place for us to meet people from both the motorsport engineering industry and the general public. Attending this year’s show was a real achievement for our motorsports department.

“During the exhibition we were able to develop new student interest and relationships with industry specialists.

“Our main sponsors Engineering and Factory Supplies based in Wisbech assisted us during the exhibition, and have so far supplied us with new bodywork for our Formula Ford Swift and team clothing for 2012.”
