Testimonials

Elliot Downs

Motorsport Technology | 2017

"Since starting my degree at the University of Bolton, I’ve gained knowledge both inside and outside the classroom which has helped me to plan my future career in Engineering Management. I completed the entire 2018 season of the British Rallycross Championship which we won, and I have also been able to gain experience with a year supporting a Mercedes GT4 car in the British GT Championship. Both of these experiences have enabled me to develop my knowledge of how race teams operate, and helped me to see the management of performance teams first-hand. I don’t think I could have done any of this without the opportunities I have had since starting my degree in BSc (Hons) Motorsport Technology at the University of Bolton."
