About BU Motorsport 

Whether you've loved Motorsport for years or have never heard of it but want to learn more, BU Motorsport aims provide a supporttive and egaging atmosphere for you regardless of expierience or skill level! 

This society was started to widen the audience of motorsport through watching races, learning about different types of motorsport, learning about the engineering behind the vehicles, developing ones skills, but most importantly allowing people to connect with others with a similar interest in a fun way and without judgement!


What we do!

Before Races we will also be offering Introduction sessions a couple times throughout the year! These sessions aim to give you all the information you might need to start watching and enjoying areas of motorsport you might not be familiar with!

2) Socials and Meet ups
