JP Latham, founder of StudentMotorsport.com, is on a mission. He wants to keep the UK at the forefront of global motorsport and he sees the education and development of young, aspiring racing professionals as vital to ensuring that race teams have the resources they need for success in the future.
JP, as he is known, spoke to EnduranceAndGT.co.uk editor Andy Lloyd at Autosport International 2017. JP has good reason to believe he is perfectly positioned to help the next generation of engineers, technicians, mechanics and media professionals – he’s been involved in motor racing, from the perspective of enthusiast, team member, student and teacher for most of his adult life.
”I’m a fan of motorsport and I have a great passion for it because it’s such an exciting and rewarding industry. That’s why I want to help the next generation, because of my background.”
He is well qualified to provide that help. JP studied motorsport at two Further Education colleges and within Higher Education.
