Sahara Force India F1 is the new host for this years MIA race engineering school, which will be hosted at the Silverstone circuit, the headquarters for F1 team on 27-28 September. MIA school will be using Sahara Force India F1 Team simulator, alongside the normal classroom environment. The delegates from the UK as well international will get hands on experience from the engineers secured from Bentley, Delta Motorsport, JRM and Sahara Force.
The MIA school of race engineering was formed to bridge the gap between education and industry by taking delegates into the real working environment. The content of this programme is developed using existing knowledge by using real world, hands-on examples. The topics are designed in such a way that they can provide the best opportunity for securing a role in the Motorsport industry. The courses covered are
· Real World Vehicle Dynamics
· Set Up Procedures
· Data Analysis & Telemetry
· Race Team Operations
· Race Engineering and Strategy
· Advanced Simulation
“We are delighted to be working with Sahara Force India to deliver our first School of Race Engineering using F1 simulation. It will allow our engineers of tomorrow to not only develop their knowledge, but also has a rare opportunity to take part in a tutorial with Sahara Force India’s Vehicle Science department, within the F1 simulator, which will be a fascinating experience and opportunity for these future race engineers.“ said Chris Aylett, CEO, MIA School.
Otmar Szafnauer, CEO, Sahara Force India, said "The work of the MIA is extremely valuable in helping young engineering talent realize their potential and progress to careers in the Motorsport industry. Simulation tools are becoming increasingly important in all forms of Motorsport and I’m sure the students will learn a great deal from working with our simulator program. I’m pleased that Sahara Force India can play a role in the development of the next generation and offer these students an insight into the world of Formula One."
