“I’m thrilled about the opportunity to be working with MotorsportDays LIVE leading up to their second event at Silverstone,” said JP Latham. “The primary objective of Student Motorsport is to bring together and support the next generation of motorsport professionals in our online network and beyond. I can think of no better way for educators to speak directly to prospective students and motorsport professionals than at one of the UK’s leading motorsport events on November 1 – 2.
“I also look forward to welcoming young people and students to actively take part in motorsport from the Silverstone pit lane in our dedicated work-experience programmes across the two-day event. Together with MsD LIVE we’re here to show you that involvement in motorsport is not too far away, and that Student Motorsport can support your objective of a career in professional motor racing.”
BWR Media Ltd Director Ben Whibley is looking forward to extending the reach of MsD LIVE within the educational community.
“Our conversations with Student Motorsport have looked at numerous ways to help students get experience and work in the Motorsport Industry. Therefore by combining the successful work that Student Motorsport is doing within the industry and the platform we have created with MotorsportDays LIVE at the home of British motorsport, students, colleges, universities and graduates can now get even closer to those within a live racing environment, get first-hand work experience and gain vital contacts for their future development.“
MotorsportDays LIVE 2019 will be held at Silverstone on November 1 – 2.
