DONCASTER COLLEGE’S ZERO BUILD IS PROGRESSING NICELY…

We are always following Doncaster College on their social media channels and often receive updates from them. Recently we have seen some great photos of their Zero build which is progressing really well, it now has the engine fitted and is on its wheels. The level 1 full time students at Doncaster College are all wanting to go onto become motor mechanics, Doncaster College has given them the chance of a lifetime.

Lecturer Tim Branigan said “To build a car from ground up. Extends and stretches their improving skills and knowledge in motor vehicle technology these learners have moved on to much more advanced skills and proven to themselves what they are capable of.
The Great British sports Cars Zero is the perfect kit for them to build, the students have all excelled in developing themselves and at the same time having a real visual piece of evidence to look back on and be proud off”.

Tim also said “That these Level 1 Motor Vehicle students at Doncaster College certainly learnt some new things here. Firstly how to get those low profile tyres onto new wheels. Then how to get the engine and gearbox into the chassis of the car without any damage to anybody’s fingers.”
What did we all do next….. Contemplate, admire, reflect on what we had achieved and then it was selfie half hour.
Still a long way to go and now the car has been given a name….YoYo. Because everything they bolt on comes off again after pre-fitting to be fitted correctly, greased and torqued up so soon, they will be adding taking out the engine and gearbox to their list of skills. For now we all get to bounce on it and test the suspension”

We look forward to continuing to follow the students build and hear how it is going. We will share more photos with you as their build progress throughout the year.
