The Mechanics Gymnasium is a state-of-the-art workshop where students can work on cars and motorcycles, with reserved access only for MTS students who can book their training sessions through a dedicated portal.

People Behind MTS

The MTS initiative emerged from the foresight of Eugenia Capanna, a former Team Manager who possessed a comprehensive understanding of the motorsport system. Eugenia, who was once a competitive Formula Track Driver, conceived the idea of creating a space where knowledge pertaining to motorsports could be imparted to engineers with a passion for the field.
Her vision was supported by Claudio Papello and Ivano Barletta, both of whom served as race engineers for prominent drivers such as Barrichello and Schumacher during their tenure at Ferrari F1.

The collective expertise and experience of these industry leaders, combined with their shared principles of knowledge and professional ethics, have established MTS as a premier institution for engineers seeking to cultivate and expand their skills in the motorsport industry.


There are many leading companies in the world of Motorsports that believe more and more in the importance of investing in training.

In fact, they support MTS with educational interventions or with scholarships to be awarded to the most deserving students or those with limited economic possibilities.
