Northbrook Motorsport Engineering students are celebrating after winning first place overall in the second race of the Tiedeman Trophy at Mallory Park.
The overall win was a first for Team Northbrook Racing together with professional racing driver Shane Kelly.
In a spectacular display at the Leicestershire circuit, the team clocked up the impressive win following long hours of preparation on the College’s Formula 4 Renault Van Diemen at Northbrook’s auto workshops at the Shoreham Airport campus. They now hope to maintain this success in the following two races at Donington Park this month.
Nick Goodson, Course Leader for Motorsport Engineering, said, “This is a fitting reward for the hard work and unbelievably long hours that go into making the team competitive.”
Northbrook's racing driver Shane Kelly said, “Team Northbrook Racing has done everything that a professional team would do and the proof is this result from the Tiedeman Trophy. I'm so happy for the team."
Northbrook’s ‘hands on’ motorsport courses have successfully landed pupils in the motorsport industry including roles with luxury car marque Aston Martin and McLaren Formula One.
