In support of government’s See Inside Manufacturing initiative and as part of National Motorsport Week 2012, M-Sport, in association with the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), will open its doors for students to attend a unique engineering seminar on Monday 2 July.

M-Sport – the company behind Ford’s assault on the World Rally Championship (WRC) since 1997 –  has a long history of supporting emerging talent and this special seminar aims to provide prospective engineers with an insight in to what careers are available within the UK motorsport industry.

Following a behind-the-scenes tour of the company’s state-of-the-art facilities at Dovenby Hall in Cumbria, attendees will have the opportunity to put their questions to one of the team’s experienced rally engineers in the Ford World Rally Team hospitality unit.

The seminar is open to all engineering students, regardless of course or level, but space has been limited to 20 fortunate young people, those wishing to attend should register their interest via an e-mail to, detailing why they should be selected.
