Jack was a level 3 motorsport student from The College of West Anglia. After speaking to his tutors at the college we learned he was always keen to get the experience he needed to compliment his education at the college. He was selected to take part in one of the Student Motorsport projects after recommendation from the college and started on our project in July 2013 as a general support crew member working with United Autosports.
At United Autosports he helped in the running of an Audi R8 GT3 race car which was entered into the Blancpain 24 hour Endurance Series at Spa Belgium.
Jack told us: "The whole experience was a highlight, learning firsthand how a professional team operates was fascinating. Working with Student Motorsport streamlined and effective..." Jack Howling
