Radical Sportscars hosts LJMU Formula Student Racing Team at Headquarters
Radical Sportscars was privileged to host students from the Liverpool John Moores University’s Formula Student team, LJMU Racing Team, at its Cambridgeshire Headquarters and Factory on January 19th.
On a tour led by Radical Sportscars CEO Joe Anwyll, 19 students had the opportunity to explore the facility and get to know the various departments that all contribute to designing and producing the world’s most popular sports racing cars.
Students had the opportunity to spend time with various members of Radical’s leadership team, including Head of Design Nick Walford, Head of Engineering James Scott, Head of Engines and Powertrain James Pinkerton, and members from the engineering and production teams. The students had the rare opportunity to ask questions to learn more about the cars and the wider motorsports industry, and to see the engines and cars being assembled. Students also toured Radical’s engine and chassis dynamometers, and saw freshly built racing cars undergoing final shakedown and tuning before they are shipped to customers all around the world.
Speaking on the tour, Joe Anwyll expressed how important the next generation is to the future of motorsport.
“It’s been brilliant today to show these Formula students of LJMU around our facility. I’m incredibly passionate about promoting STEM career pathways, and by showing great initiative in getting involved with Formula Student, these young men and women are highlighting how they’ll be the future of not only businesses like ours, but motorsport as a whole.”
Radical Sportscars wishes the LJMU Racing Team all the best with their future Formula Student competitions, and with their wider engineering endeavours.
