Initially, I worked at the University of Wales as a technician, moving into lecturing and becoming the university’s chief motorsport engineer. Whilst at the University of Wales, I helped develop a Formula Student car, which finished the UK Competition in sixth place. From then I moved to the College, lecturing on the Level 2 course in Motorsport Engineering and subsequently becoming the HE Programme Lead.
Our state-of-the-art, £1.25million facility for university-level Motorsport Engineering is the first teaching centre of its kind to be located trackside at an internationally renowned race course.
