Students from College of West Anglia hoping for motorsport success in season finale
STUDENTS from the College of West Anglia’s motorsport team are hoping to end their first season together on a high.
The College’s Formula Ford car, based at the Isle Campus in Wisbech, has been worked on at evenings and weekends by dedicated motorsport students who are studying for their National Diploma.
They team hope to finish in second place in their class at the season’s finale on October 23 at Lydden Hill Race Circuit in Kent.
Chris Middleton, course director, said: “The team worked really hard for the last round and we are really looking forward to having a new engine for the event in October - it should make a real difference.
“We have a lot to look forward to and next season should be better still for us but a big thank-you must go to our sponsors.”
