Due to the positive relationship developed over the past three years between NMMU Racing and VW’s Racing division, Mike Rowe, VW Motorsport manager has launched an innovative “Race Support Intern” program in partnership with NMMU Racing.

The program involves selected NMMU Racing students, who travel to each of the VW sponsored track and rally events on the calendar, to learn the “ins and outs” of running a racing team!

Our NMMU Racing Interns will be supporting the Formula VW single-seater series, Polo Cup and Rally series, and will travel the breadth of South Africa with the VW Racing team to assist with everything from race administration to vehicle performance data analysis.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn from the professionals, while providing a chance for NMMU to give support back to one of our major sponsors.

This is a very exciting development for NMMU racing and we look forward to reaping the benefits of the experience gained!
