The University Centre Somerset Motorsport Race Team, recent national champions, is made up of Higher Education students studying Motorsport. They have taken our Radical PR6 Race car, 'Poppet', all over the courty, competing regularly at circuits including Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

Based at our specialist workshop at Bridgwater campus, we offer a two-year Motorsport Engineering Foundation Degree and a Motorsport Technology BEng (Hons) top-up year. There, students have the opportunity to work on our own racing car and customer cars in fully equipped workshops using the latest tooling, diagnostics, and IT equipment.

The success of our Motorsport programme is evident in the achievements of our graduates, who have secured positions at renowned companies such as Williams, McLaren F1, and Mercedes HPP. By joining University Centre Somerset, students will get the chance to follow in their alumni's footsteps, leaving with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the dynamic world of motorsport.
