How to get on track for a career in Motorsport

Bicester Motorsport (formerly OCVC Motorsport College) teaches Motorsport and Engineering to young people and those seeking new careers in the motorsport industry. To gain a wider understanding of the motorsports industry so you can progress to higher education or a motorsport apprenticeship, study our Extended Diploma in Engineering Motorsport.

Our students go on to work in industry or get places at universities. Each year students go from here to work in F1 and related or supporting industry. We currently have students or former students working at Lotus, Force India, Red Bull and Prodrive.
