The British motorsports industry is recognised as the best in the world with Britons at the heart of a vast range of worldwide motorsport activities. It is a huge industry employing people in businesses from retail performance specialists to preparation companies, with many Formula One and World Rally Teams based in the UK.

Myerscough College has seven motorsport workshops and a number of different racing cars for the continuing development and expansion of motorsport teaching. Myerscough believes that hands-on experience is an important aspect of learning and therefore encourages students to take part in a wide range of motorsport events throughout the UK.

The College runs race and rally teams which compete successfully in national competitions, working to industry standards. Myerscough students have benefitted from the unique relationship that the College enjoys with M-Sport and, to date, 22 students have worked on M-Sport cars as part of the WRC Academy programme at WRC events. In 2014 Myerscough students are supporting the five events that comprise the Drive DMACK Fiesta Cup, the support programme to the WRC. This series uses M-Sport’s proven Ford Fiesta R2 rally car to provide a platform to encourage fierce competition among the world’s top young rally talent.
