Yet another thrilling season of motorsport has come to a close for Morgan and Wolverhampton University as the 2017 AR Motorsport Morgan Challenge ends with the final round of the year at Snetterton. Each of the Morgan race cars is now back in their respective garages and workshops, ready for winter enhancements, rebuilds, and the occasional test.
The 2017 season is the second year of Morgan’s partnership with the University of Wolverhampton that began in 2016, the on-going collaboration has seen the two companies combine resources both on and off the race track.
The partnership allows Wolverhampton University students the opportunity to gain industry experience within the Morgan Motor Company, as well as utilize their knowledge and learning as part of student race team, UWRacing. The 2017 season has seen a team of 9 students support Morgan race drivers Tony Hirst and Craig Hamilton-Smith, in two Morgan race cars.
We’ve made the most of the end of season lull in activity to sit down with some of the students and drivers involved in Morgan’s partnership with the University of Wolverhampton race team, to get their take on the season.
You can see more on the racing program, the racers, and the students involved with the program at Morgan Motorsport’s article.
