Pirelli has provided motorsport students from Myerscough College with competition tyres to help them on their quest to build a Ford Fiesta R2 as part of their course.
Based in Lancashire, northwest England, Myerscough College boasts seven motorsport workshops and several competition cars for the continuing development and expansion of motorsport teaching. The college 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 also runs race and rally teams that compete successfully in national competitions and some of their students have even had the chance to help out on the WRC Academy: a six-round feeder series to the FIA World Rally Championship that uses Pirelli as the official tyre supplier.
As part of their motorsport course, this year Myerscough students have been given the chance to build a rally car with the support of Pirelli who were on hand to provide tyres to the college.
