MET Motorsport are Student Motorsport Challenge 2022 champions
Northbrook College’s MET Motorsport team are winners of the inaugural Student Motorsport Challenge 2022. Richard Jepp, driving the #65 MET Motorsport Peugeot 107, took the team to victory in the final race of the season to secure the Championship.
Students from Northbrook College’s Degree level Motorsport have participated in the BRSCC Nankang CityCar Cup Championship over the course of the year, competing against other colleges and universities nationally. The team have attended track days around the country at Oulton Park, Snetterton, Anglesey, Cadwell Park and Croft, with the final race of the championship taking place at Silverstone Circuit. At Silverstone they not only won all three of the last rounds of the Student Championship, they also came second from the grid of 39 other entries in the overall City Car Cup Championship that weekend.
Team Principal and Course Leader Dr Emma Norton said “The Student Motorsport Challenge has provided our students with an unrivalled opportunity to learn, compete and network in a professional motorsport environment. They have enjoyed some amazing events and gained motorsport industrial experience throughout the year by working for our race team. Winning the Championship is just the icing on the cake for them and is so well-deserved!”
