BCoT have run Motorsport qualifications for a number of years and, for the 2014 race season, purchased and re-built two Toyota MR2s.

Our students working towards the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Maintenance and Repair (Motorsport) maintain the vehicles supported by their fantastic team of tutors.

The qualification includes units on preparing, racing and post-inspection of motorsport vehicles, both in workshops and in the pit lane, so travelling to live races is perfect experience for them.

In partnership with first Stoner Racing and now CFM Engineering, other local race teams, the College work with two young professional drivers who drive the cars for us:
Car 30 Michael Taylor
Car 31 Nathan Wright
