Is your dream, a hands-on career, trackside in motorsport? 


Jamie Augustine, Technical Regulations & Special Projects Manager, Motorsport Australia, built his first race car an, Mk1 Escort Sports Sedan, whilst working as a computer programmer in aviation. His self-taught car building skills led to a position doing electrics, electronics and IT for V8 Supercar team – Glenn Seton Racing. Jamie has raced in both Bathurst and Merdeka Sepang, Malaysia, 12-hour races; won the 2B Sportscar and 2-litre Sports Sedan racing state championships; and developed and managed technology across racing vehicles.

Jamie will provide insight into the many directions engineering can take you in Motorsport; vehicle design, engine design and calibration, wiring and electrical, and information technology. Providing the knowledge you need to take your education trackside.

Register here and learn from Jamie’s experience – you will gain valuable insight and knowledge to ensure you stand out. A great advantage in pursuing your Motorspot goals.

Racecar development: from conception to the track

Global sports car and endurance racing manufacturer and team MARC Cars own Alyson Fradgley, Team Manager, joins us, along with founder of PACE Innovations Paul Ceprnich. Mechanical Engineer; to provide insight into their collaboration — that led to the design of a highly in-demand racecar.

Alyson will share highlights from her extensive experience managing Motorsport teams and sourcing quality parts. While Paul will discuss the challenges and achievements on the journey to designing the 'best racecar chassis' in Australia; the decisions that took them from the MARC l to the MARC ll. 

This is an educational opportunity for engineers and technical people interested in component selection and integration into a project, fabricators interested in chassis design, but overall anyone curious where to start; when you want to build a racecar.

Join us online for an exclusive webinar on Aerodynamics with JKF Aero 


Hear from Presenter, Kyle Forster, the Lead Aerodynamicist at JKF Consultants as he provides a Case Study of F1 vs. Production Car Aerodynamics, including an analysis of different racecars, aerodynamics techniques and methodology, tools and advice for other aerodynamicists, including;

  • Aerodynamic components – wings, winglets, diffusers
  • Constraints – rules and regulations that control aerodynamic performance and financial constraints of developing aerodynamic parts
  • Testing – How do you test an aero components
  • Tuning – how to tune a vehicle to optimise its aerodynamic performance
  • Compromise – The compromise between downforce and drag, aero grip vs mechanical grip
