Student Motorsport Challenge, the inter-series within the BRSCC Nankang Tyre CityCar Cup Championship, is delighted to announce that 3D printer training and equipment provider 3D 360 will sponsor the forthcoming Donington Park rounds on September the 10th.

Based in Leigh, near Manchester, 3D 360 is a training provider to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) delivering fully funded two, three and five-day courses in 3D CAD and 3D printing. The company also delivers bespoke training material to upskill existing staff and provide newly trained staff to businesses. 3D 360 will soon be expanding their training offering to Lancashire and beyond. 

Every learner attending one of 3D 360’s two or three-day 3D printer courses or Skills Bootcamps gets to build and keep a fully working Creality Ender 3 printer for them to take back to their employer.

3D 360 provides free digital upskill opportunities for the unemployed, self-employed and career changers with their fully funded training courses.

3D 360 will be working in association with Student Motorsport to introduce 3D Printing, 3D CAD and Digital manufacturing training into grassroots motorsport.

The company will be donating 3D printers as a prize for Student Motorsport Challenge entries. Details on the criteria for winning this valuable piece of equipment will be announced in due course.

3D 360 Managing Director Lee Fogg is excited for his company to be associated with, and supporting, Student Motorsport and working together to introduce training courses for SMo Challenge teams and students to instil how 3D Printing and Manufacturing can be utilised in motorsport.
