This month we learn a little more about the most junior member of Team BPS. Ralph is at the very start of his motorsport career as our Technical Intern.
How did you come to work at BPS?
Having worked with BPS before through its sponsorship of Oxford Brookes Racing Formula Student team, I was lucky enough to do few weeks work here over my summer holidays, and now continue to work here part-time around my studies.
What does a typical day at BPS entail
My days at BPS are always different. It can vary from testing new car models and tracks, to assisting Matt, Ella and Simon on whatever our customers need that day.
What do you think makes BPS different to other companies?
Its tenacity. Despite being a young, small company in the sector, I think BPS acquits itself very well. As is shown by its extensive and contrasting list of global clients. I’m pretty lucky to be exposed to so much.
What is the best day you’ve had at BPS?
One of my first projects at BPS was to audit our entire car library, ensuring the models were consistent with our high standards. The project included driving every single car… how could I possibly say no!
What do you do when you aren’t at work?
I work towards my degree in Motorsport Engineering at Oxford Brookes University. Both Simon and Ella studied there, so it is a well trodden path.
What is the one piece of advice you’d give to your 15 year old self?
