Student Race Series

Student Race Series

Student Motorsport and Tiger Racing have come together and taken important step in bringing motorsport closer to education, thanks to this unique combination the motorsport industry will gain a UK series that is made up of entirely educational teams.  This series is designed to be affordable to institutions and allows students and educators to engage with modern, competitive and reliable racing cars, and will enhance students experience whilst they study a motorsport related course at either college, UTC or university.

Our Aims are Simple

The new student series aims to transform education and motorsport in the UK by providing accessible motorsport activities to educational institutions.  Currently in motorsport there is no championship that is solely dedicated to education, so there’s no benchmark opportunity to focus students on.  By taking part in our series we’re helping to power the careers of the next generation of motorsport professionals.  Help us by encouraging your students to take control, shape their future and add a further dimension to an already exciting career in motorsport.

Key Features of the Series

We’re bringing fantastic opportunities to motorsport students; by changing the way that education and motorsport work together we are effectively removing the barriers that up to now motorsport educators have faced.  Through a unique combination of a professional series, modern racing cars and professionalism that Tiger Racing and Student Motorsport are bringing, this will be one of the single most important steps taken to support and boost motorsport education in the UK.

We are supporting your student’s educational and career development:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of motorsport operations, mechanics and engineering.
  • Embed teaching whilst your students gain valuable trackside experience.
  • Preparation for a move to experience and employment in higher race formulas.
