Our project for next year is to race prepare a standard road vehicle. We are hoping to raise enough funds so we can enter it into the MSVTT.
About the project
We are a group of Motorsport students at East Surrey College, Redhill. Our project for the 2nd year is to fully race prepare a Volkswagen Golf Mk4 on a budget. We have the funds to complete this task but ideally, we are hoping to gain enough backing in order to enter our vehicle into the Motorsport Vision Trackday Trophy ( www.trackdaytrophy.co.uk ). This is a budget race series designed for novice teams as their first step onto the racing scene. Last year the college had a sole sponsor, who helped a class of students enter two vehicles into this series, which was very beneficial to the students as they gained real life experience working in a live motorsports environment. (The Toyota Corolla pictured above was one of the vehicles).
We are hoping to achieve the same (or better) this year. Unfortunately the sponsor is unable to continue their support for the next year, so therefore we are looking at alternative options. We have already contacted local businesses who have already pledged to support us. As a bare minimum the car will be raced around Brands Hatch on an open track day although we would like to do better if possible. The only factor which decides which race we enter is our finances. If we are able to raise enough funds, then we will be entering into the Trackday Trophy Series. Any overfunding will be used to enter into further races.
Please look at our rewards and hopefully you will be able to help us achieve this goal.
