Coventry University is planning to make 9 June 2012 Coventry Car Day

21 Feb 2012

Coventry University is planning to make 9 June 2012 Coventry Car Day. The day is part of the celebrations for Coventry University’s 20th anniversary and is planned to include:

  • an industry/academic symposium on the future of the car, which is being organized by transport design lecturers from Coventry School of Art and Design
  • an automotive and motorsport careers advice event, with talks from people working in a range of automotive and motorsport jobs, plus a drop-in area where people can get advice from employers, industry bodies and
  • the university about careers and training
  • a public Q&A with an automotive and motorsport industry panel
  • motoring-themed tours of Coventry, starting at the university and ending at Coventry Transport Museum
  • a big display of interesting cars and other vehicles – particularly cars with a Coventry connection

We are planning to involve local media and specialist automotive and motorsport media to publicise the event in the run up (some have already expressed interest), and to provide coverage of the day itself.

If you would like to be involved – perhaps in the careers event, advising visitors on careers in motorsport or answering questions, please contact Andrew Noakes BEng(Hons), DIS Senior Lecturer in Automotive Journalism at [email protected]
