The College of West Anglia motorsport team took another big step towards racing away from its opposition by announcing a new working relationship with a Mini specialist.

Norfolk Cars Ltd, based in Tilney All Saints, has linked up with the college and has donated a Mini Cooper S for the students’ next race build project for entry into the 2017 Super Cooper Cup.

Norfolk Cars’ sales manager, Neale Clarke visited the college to talk to students about the industry and said he is thrilled to be a part of the partnership.

“Our relationship with CWA began on the track a few years ago, competing in our Minis,” Neale said.

“The college team helped us out when our Mini was in an accident, and since then we have always maintained close contract, both on and off the track. With our expert knowledge of Minis and enjoyment for the sport, it only felt natural that we work together and support each other going forward.”
