Motor Vehicle students from Gower College Swansea enjoyed a recent team building day at Newport's Supakart.
The visit, which was part funded by the College’s Reaching Wider team, allowed the learners to drive petrol powered vehicles around the multi-level indoor circuit.
“The aims of the Reaching Wider project are to increase participation in higher education and improve employment prospects," says lecturer Lucy Turtle. "This was a great opportunity for the students to experience driving go-karts and it really brought out their competitive sides!"
“This trip was an excellent opportunity for the students to bond outside of the regular learning environment," adds lecturer Mat Oatway. "It also provided opportunities for those who do not yet drive to experience some of the characteristics of suspension and braking systems."
“The team building element of the day was very exciting," says student Lewis Bradshaw.
