Motor Vehicle Level 2
Bermudan Carlo Paynter became the first
international student to win Pershore College’s Motor Achievement
Carlo, 24, swapped the North Atlantic island
for the Vale of Evesham to study the Level 2 Motor Vehicle
He said, “I’d always been interested in cars and bikes, and had
been working in bike mechanics, but I wanted to study in England,
so applied here to Pershore College.
“I’ve had a great experience here, but I was really surprised
when they told me I had won the award.”
Bryan Leighton, Curriculum Leader for Motor Vehicle at Pershore
said, “The award is presented to the best motor vehicle student
across all the college’s courses, and Carlo thoroughly deserved to
win it. He fitted in straight away despite having moved a long way
from home, and has produced a very high standard of work. He has
been an excellent influence on the other students as well and a
pleasure to teach."
BUGGIES PUT TO THE TEST AT BRUNTINGTHORPE
Motorsport engineering level 3
A group of Warwick Trident College motorsport
students put their creations to the test at Bruntingthorpe Proving
Ground in Leicestershire.
The students are all studying for a BTEC
Level 3 in Motorsport Engineering and during their course they have
designed and built the ‘buggies’ under the supervision of their
instructor, ‘Fixit’ Mick Harding.
The culmination of their efforts was the
testing day held at Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds in
Leicestershire. The students explored handling characteristics,
gearing and engine performance in order to develop the cars ready
for a second day of trials next year.
