Revving up for life in fast lane

Motorsport technology students at North Lindsey College are preparing for life in the fast lane with Lincoln-based race team PP Motorsport who are competing at the UK Clio Cup.

The level three learners are gearing up to be a part of the pit crew as the team races around nine circuits in 18 races on April 2 and 3.

The cup is the support race for the British Touring Car Championship and PP Team owner John Creasey wanted the students to take pole position to give them “first-hand experience”.

Students have been taught how to run a motorsport car professionally under the guidance of the team’s motorsport engineers.

Naomi Knight, aged 20, said she “can’t wait to get stuck in” at the race weekend. “I can’t believe that we are getting experience like this, we are going to be trackside doing diagnostics and helping the team to victory.”

Adam Grisley, 19, added: “In college we get to learn about working in a pit, but actually working with a professional team and working on the car in the paddock is just mind blowing.”
