Expert Engineer Jay Davenport shares his secrets


Champion GP3 Chief Race Engineer, Jay Davenport has confirmed that he will be tutoring the Motorsport Industry Association’s (MIA) School of Race Engineering ‘Winning Workshops’ at the Autosport International Show on 11th January 2013.

Jay, who has years of experience in single-seater, touring car racing, will be sharing his race-winning secrets of car set-up with up to 200 attendees at the show. The three-hour workshops will cover every element of preparing a faster race car for the track; from tyres and camber set up to gear ratio selection and aero adjustments.

Designed to be open to everyone aged 16 and upwards and including free entry to the Autosport International Show for the rest of the day, the Winning Workshops are a great taster of professional race engineering for motorsport enthusiasts, club-level racers and even drivers wanting to know more about car set-up. The MIA hopes that this accessible yet technical ‘taster’ of the profession will also help to attract more young science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students into studying engineering and pursuing a career in motorsport.

With tickets for the half-day workshops at only £130 and the rest of the day free to enjoy the show, the Winning Workshops are a great opportunity to optimise attendance at the Autosport International Show and take away some invaluable knowledge.
