Engineering Motorsport Project Raises Aspirations

November 18 2016

Zig Zag Underline

Mechanical Engineering students at Lincoln College are getting hands-on experience with race karts.

As part of their Motorsport unit, the Level 3 students are getting two race karts ready for their next competition. This involves taking them apart and preparing the karts for a race taking place this weekend at Fulbeck racing track.

Engineering Lecturer Mark Snell said:

“This is an exciting project for the students’ motorsport unit; preparing the karts so that they are suitable to race on a circuit that is different to the last one they competed on allows the students to apply their knowledge as they consider what will work best and why.

“Lots of people working in exciting careers in motorsport are from an engineering background and all Formula 1 mechanics start at this level so it is inspiring our students to think big.”

Mechanical Engineering student Matt Casey said:

“Working on this project is a good way to get a hands-on inside knowledge of karts and the mechanics that will help us in future careers.

“I am fascinated by how engines work and it is exciting considering how we can apply what we are learning to the roles we are aiming to work in in the future.

“One day I would like to either be an airline pilot or a track mechanic, this unit is definitely inspiring me.”
