China’s first racing car school was recently established in Wuhan and the school will begin enrolling students in September 2019. As the first professional school in China focusing on racing car technology and personnel training, the school will be linked with Jianghan University.
In recent years, automobile racing has become increasingly popular in China. Wuhan, a city that has many car enterprises, has enjoyed rapid development in the auto industry over the past seven years.
“The total scale of the school is about 3,000 to 5,000 students, including undergraduates, a small amount of graduates and junior college students,” said Xia Hongwu, the institute director of the auto industry school in Jianghan University.
According to Xia, three kinds of teachers will be teaching at the school. There will be foreign teachers, racing professionals and local teachers. The majors offered include racing car mechanical engineering, racing car electronic engineering, leisure camp management, and racing car maintenance.
