Nov 1 sees Xtrac Senior Design Analyst Craig Bremner and Design Engineer Nick Upjohn providing a detailed insight into transmission design and set-up on the second day of the 2020 MIA School of Race Engineering held at the at Silverstone race circuit.
The MIA programme is presented by tutors who currently hold successful positions within the industry such as Bremner and Upjohn, allowing delegates to listen and learn from their expertise and experience. Nick Upjohn supports many of the British Touring car rounds for Xtrac and can offer first hand experience to the delegates.
“I have presented at three of the previous MIA Race Engineering schools”, comments Bremner, “I’m always impressed at the enthusiasm of the students and Nick and I get great satisfaction in sharing our knowledge and experience with potential future race engineers”.
Upjohn added “Xtrac put a lot of effort into supporting our own Apprentices and Graduates and this type of external presentation is a perfect extension to that training, allowing us to develop ourselves and future engineers”.
The MIA School of Race Engineering is aimed at individuals who wish to further their career in race engineering. Using Base Performance Simulators, alongside a classroom environment, delegates learn from current race engineers, who share their in-depth knowledge and experience.
The school is open to UK and International delegates, engineering students, graduates and technicians – who want to further their experience and education to help secure a position within this highly competitive industry. All topics are designed to provide the best opportunity for securing and developing a role in the motorsport industry – bridging the gap between education and industry by taking delegates into the real working environment.
