Student Motorsport are proud to welcome Tiger Racing to our new website, we are collaborating with them to bring opportunities to our members, students, graduates and aspiring automotive and motorsport professionals.
What they do…
Tiger Racing now manufactures seven models of road and race cars and was formed back in 1989. They are one of the major kit car manufactures and can supply base chassis through to complete kits and, in fact, were one of the first to introduce 'comprehensive' kits into the industry. Tiger is a family company and prides itself on its back up once the customer has purchased anything from the chassis all the way to the turn-key car.
At Tiger they have great facilities that cover many important aspects of the kit car manufacturing industry, and with these in place can provide a great service. Their facilities include engineering and fabrication shops, paint and booth department, MOT facility, general garage, trimming shop, and an impressive parts department. Alongside these excellent facilities Tiger has UK and international agents helping with all aspects of Tiger and ERA promotion and sales.
How we’re working together…
Student Motorsport is excited to announce another major project that we are working on alongside Tiger Racing. We are working with Tiger to reintroduce their race series which will include a student (team) only class that is dedicated to colleges and universities at the heart of motorsport here in the UK.
We’re excited at the fantastic opportunities that this will bring students and educators in motorsport, automotive and engineering areas, and we aim to bridge the gap for institutions that are unable to participate in competitive motorsport. This will also provide an affordable stepping stone for aspiring drivers from lower ranks of motor racing such a karts, and all to be hosted at major UK circuits.
More information will following in the coming weeks, keep a look out for our dedicated web pages here at Student Motorsport and over at Tiger Racing for further announcements and full details of the series.
A word from them…
"All of us at Tiger Racing are really excited that to be associated with Student Motorsport on the introduction of a new race series project. Many motorsport professionals and fans out there will know that Tiger has been building Sportscars for 28 years with previous Tiger race and ERA 'one make' races. We've found over the years that students are always enthusiastic when building our Sportscars. What really excites us now is that they can build a car, manage their student team and compete on a level playing field, visiting some great race circuits and without doubt have a great time."
Jim Dudley, CEO of Tiger Racing.
