#MotorVehicleStudies update: Double trouble!! Another customer dragster in the house. This week, in the #motorsport workshop, the Level 2 learners took receipt of another customer dragster for some winter work. This is due to the good feedback for customer work so far. The learners will carry out their post-competition inspection assessment, carrying out a full inspection of the dragster and winter service including new brakes and slight wiring modification.

The #MotorVehicleDepartment are awaiting delivery of a Greenpower F24 Kit Car for the Motorsport and Body & Paint learners. The learners will build the kit car and then design the body shell to enable it to compete in the Greenpower events that take place across the year at different race tracks. Learners will compete in 60 minute endurance races. The team that goes the furthest distance within the time limit wins using a single 24 volt motor powered by two 12 volt batteries linked in series. The #Greenpower events use the excitement of Motorsport to inspire young people to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
Look at this beauty! This car will be on display in the MV workshops this evening, for our #NuneatonCampus Open Evening, and will also be started during the event! The dragster is owned by our one of our Motor Vehicle teams and their family, they have designed and built the car themselves. It currently runs the ¼ mile in 8.22 seconds @ 157MP - they have finished 3rd this year in the Wild Bunch Nostalgia drag racing national championship. Join us tonight, from 5pm to 8pm. #MotorVehicleStudies#motorvehiclecourses#yourcollegelife#motorvehiclestudent
