The Founder of Race Staff Russell Howard started out as a race mechanic a number of years ago. He then progressed to work as race engineer with various teams and finally got an opportunity to drive a racing car. He drove in various single seater championships and ran businesses to fund his entry. Russell's idea for developing a new company to support the motorsport industry came in 2011 after he had taken yet another phone call from a former colleague asking if he knew a data engineer, this time for the upcoming Le Mans race. It was then where he decided to develop a business, utilise his motorsport contacts and his experience and when Race Staff was born.
"Today's students are the future of the sport we love, it is our duty to make sure they have the best education and opportunities put in front of them. Student Motorsport help to enable this, and it is a pleasure to support then in their aims in any way we can."
A word from them...
"Student Motorsport has great goals, when we met them online we discussed the need for 'better candidates' for the future of the industry we love. Any opportunity to help and support that drive for the next generation had to be taken seriously."
Russell Howard, CEO of Race Staff.
