Masterclass on Engineering Conformity and Safety by Peter Riches in Semester 2, 2019

We were very fortunate to have the pleasure of Peter Riches, the TOCA British Touring Car Championship Technical Director, at the university to give masterclass presentation on the in-depth side of the technical regulations and improved safety engineering regulations required to confirm to the homologation, FIA and Motorsport UK safety requirements.

The safety engineering masterclass cohort of around 40 students were very engaged by Peter’s enlightening presentation about the areas of motorsport many don’t understand, appreciate or consider and his wealth of experience grown from his time as the technical chief of touring cars and his time at Lotus F1 were of significant interest.

After the safety engineering presentation, many students were keen to put further questions to Peter.

Moreover, Peter highlighted an opportunity for two candidates to assist him with data analysis at all the BTCC events in 2019, as such two of our female students were selected by Peter to assist him and his team who have successfully been integrated into the TOCA Technical organisation team.
