Be a specialist #70

Join us in learning about the engine wiring of a race car with specialist Chris Timmerman of AMG Motorsport.

CMR is offering a small number of people an opportunity to be a part of the team completing the design, manufacture, and installation of the electronic wiring loom of our land speed racing cars. This opportunity is offered to any man or woman interested in learning some mechanics of land speed racing, especially those that achieve phenomenal speeds.

Most people can learn these skills.

Included in the tutorial will be knowledge sharing of wiring loom design and manufacture and preparing the fastest cars on earth. You will be involved in the cars that have achieved many records at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

This learning will take place at the CMR Ness Valley Workshop

The cars you will see in the workshop will be traveling to Bolivia in 2023 to chase world records of up to 550mph (885km/hour).

Learn these skills and you may find yourself being asked to join the team.

To record the history of these cars and their world-renowned driver, Reg Cook, a film crew will be following the people and the cars on the journey from the workshop to the salt lake of Bolivia.

If you would like to be considered for this education, you will most likely be a person who:

  • Has the desire to learn
  • Enjoys solving problems in fine detail
  • Enjoys any form of car racing
