Over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, staff and students from the Bridgwater & Taunton College Motorsport Team headed up to fames Donington racing circuit in Leicestershire.

The start of the season has seen the appointment of a new student team manager, James Wellens and a completely new student race team consisting of Level 2, Level 3 and Degree students.

Another first for the Bridgwater & Taunton Motorsport Team is running and supporting customer cars at race meetings.

The weekend consisted of testing on Easter Sunday and then qualifying and two races on Easter Monday.

At qualifying, the BTC Motorsport team car gained pole position, followed by a round 1 lap record smash and outright win, and another outright win in round 2.

Josh Smith, driver and motorsport course leader said: “We’ve had a great weekend, the students have worked well together in our first event while also running two customer cars, and our performance in the BTC car shows what we are capable of.

"We hope for more of the same at our next event at Silverstone during the first weekend in May.”
