They were representing the team as part of a group of high-quality apprentices and UTC graduates now successfully working at Brackley and Brixworth, as well as in the wider motorsport industry. Amber and Dan were accompanied by our Head of Build, Peter Hodgkinson.
"I started as an apprentice years ago and without an apprenticeship, I wouldn't be doing what I do," Peter explains. "To me, that makes it very, very important and I am very supportive of our apprenticeship programme.
"Youth is the future of any team or organisation. To give those kids the best opportunity to start out in life, to train them, develop them and see them go on to great things is brilliant, and a big responsibility."
Silverstone UTC will work closely with The Silverstone Experience, using the technical heritage of British motorsport to help inspire high-performance engineers of the future - like Amber, Dan and other graduates.
"It is well-known that Great Britain is a world leader in high-performance engineering and motor racing engineering in particular - as well as having some great drivers as well," Prince Harry said, during his visit.
"But it is no exaggeration to say that unless we encourage more young people to study science, technology, engineering and maths it will be impossible for us to continue to lead in this field.
"I'm really encouraged to see the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment in the Silverstone University Technical College.
"More significantly, to have met the enthusiastic young people studying there as well as those who have gone on to start their careers with leading employers in the motorsport industry."
We're excited to see what The Silverstone Experience has to offer when the project is completed in spring 2019!
