Eddie Stobart is partnering with the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering and Albatec Racing to train the next generation of motorsport engineers.
The partnership will provide students studying Motorsport and Automotive Performance Engineering at the University of Bolton with hands-on experience in the development, assembly and preparation of the “Albatec NCME partnered by Eddie Stobart Peugeot 208 RX Supercar”.
Through a mixture of in-class, workshop and event-day learning, NCME students will work directly with Albatec engineers during the Toyo Tires MSA British Rallycross Championship, as British Rally Champion Mark Higgins takes to the wheel of the Peugeot 208 RX.
Eddie Stobart will work with the University of Bolton to understand how it can extend this partnership to aid the development of its graduate scheme which will be launched in September this year.
Angelina Miley, HR director of Eddie Stobart said: “With the core aim of providing career development opportunities for the next generation of motorsport engineers, this partnership perfectly epitomises Eddie Stobart’s ideals and the team has our complete support for the year’s rallycross campaign. Motorsport has such strong links to the logistics world, and we’re committed to helping deliver for Mark and the team.”
