Dearne Valley College are hosting an official launch event for their newly-constructed Automotive building.  Amateur race car and Locost Championship driver, Max Lees, will attend to cut the ribbon and officially open the new addition to the Wath-based campus, alongside College Principal and Chief Executive, Martin Harrison.

The new building, named ‘PIT63’ is a dedicated workshop for students undertaking the College’s Automotive courses including Motorsport, which will allow them to work on operational vehicles and projects, and is packed to the rafters with top quality, industry-specific equipment and a huge range of tools. The building is part of Dearne Valley College’s continuous investment into both community and college facilities.

Among the attendees will be representatives from companies who were involved in the building and management of the project, including Sheffield-based Bond Bryan and local company, George Hurst Ltd, alongside other local businesses from the area. A spokesperson for the College said:

“With the exciting addition of the PIT63 building, we are not only investing in the College’s facilities, but we also investing in the talent of aspiring students looking toward a career in the Automotive Industry. Students will have the opportunity to gain practical, sector-specific experience in excellent surroundings.”

The launch event is taking place at 1.30pm on Wednesday, 9th October at Dearne Valley College’s Manvers Campus.
