Abstract

This paper highlights a distinctive, highly-innovative, and project-based approach to supplying cutting-edge, market-driven and industry-focused education courses, at post-graduate level, in key motorsports engineering, business, and management subjects, using a highly-flexible, supported distance learning format. Such courses aim to deliver high-quality, usable knowledge to engineers, managers, and even drivers, with minimum disruption to their normal work patterns.
