Each year all MTA apprentices have the opportunity to be involved in an exciting hands-on role at the Adelaide 500, exposing our apprentices to the behind-the scenes world of V8 Supercar racing.
The Motorsports Repair Team is available and open to all apprentices attending the MTA Training Centre to apply and be selected to work at Adelaide 500, either in a mobile workshop or pit lane with a V8 Supercar team.
In the mobile workshop the apprentices and trainers work together to provide assistance for vehicles in other race categories to get them back on the track.
Third and fourth year apprentices also have the opportunity to be selected to join a V8 Supercar Team, servicing the well drilled teams in the pit lane throughout the four-days.
"Seeing how organised, professional and how well the Red Bull Team all work together is eye-opening. Working in a V8 Supercar team is definitely something I aspire to."
Matthew Field - Red Bull Racing Team member, 2016 and MTA apprentice.
This really is an experience of a lifetime!
The Motorsports Repair Team can only operate through the generosity of our following partners: PPG, Capricorn Society Limited, MTAA Super, Lowbake Australia, Blackwoods, SP Tools, 3M, Hip Pocket Workwear and Vili's Family Bakery.
