Motor Racing mechanic course

The Motor Racing Mechanic Course aims to train and specialize racing mechanics with theoretical classes and practical experience on racing cars, both with open and covered wheels.

The course covers both the technical aspects, as well as the methods and practical features of the job of a racing mechanic. The subjects deal with the various mechanical parts in racing cars and the dynamics that improve performance, such as the setup, aerodynamics and electronics.

A non-technical, but very important aspect is the mechanic’s psychological and emotional control of the relationship/rapport with the driver. The practical part will be divided into covered-wheel cars (GT), prototypes and open-wheel cars (Formula).

During the classes, authoritative representatives from the Motorsport world will come to speak and there will be visits to leading companies in the sector. To ensure more comprehensive training, the courses are held in classrooms, in the pits and on the circuit with high-level equipment and materials, within the MTS site in Lesmo and at the Monza Racetrack. 

Nell’ambito del corso è prevista una giornata in pista con la F4, dove gli studenti possono lavorare a contatto diretto con il pilota, il telemetrista e l’ingegnere di pista, in modo tale da simulare il più possibile il lavoro di un team. As part of the course, there is a day on the track with the F4, where students can work in direct contact with drivers, telemetry analysts and track engineers to simulate, as much as possible, working with a team.
