A word from them...
"We met JP from Student Motorsport track side, no surprise there! JP manages The College of West Anglia Motorsport team in addition to developing Student Motorsport who were often racing their Mini at the same events as us. So being local, and racing the same cars bought us together with common interests. It has now developed to a great social and educational relationship for both parties and we look forward to the opportunities we will be able to create for young people looking for a career in the motorsport industry."
