Motorsport

The British motorsports industry is recognised as the best in the world with Britons at the heart of a vast range of worldwide motorsport activities. It is a huge industry employing people in businesses from retail performance specialists to preparation companies, with many Formula One and World Rally Teams based in the UK.

Myerscough College has seven motorsport workshops and a number of different competition cars for the continuing development and expansion of motorsport teaching. We believe that hands-on experience is an important aspect of learning and therefore encourages students to take part in a wide range of motorsport events throughout the UK. The department also now features a brand new motorcycle workshop for the learners on our new motorcycle programme.
