JRM Group links with Oxford Brookes University to develop and test progressive motorsport products

Daventry-based Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing company, JRM Group, has formed a partnership with the leading Motorsport University, Oxford Brookes, to begin a collaborative relationship to research, test and develop ideas for advancing capabilities within motorsport.

The teams at both JRM and Oxford Brookes will begin investigating ideas that have the potential to significantly impact many categories of motorsport, with particular focus on electronics and the use of innovative advanced engineering techniques to support efficient and revealing testing methods at all levels of development in the automotive and motorsport industries.

Jason King, Managing Director of JRM Group Ltd says “Partnering with the University allows us both to support the young engineers of the future while we mutually benefit from combined research efforts surrounding advanced engineering that’s vital in keeping motorsport progressive at all levels. We’re aiming to make this a fruitful exercise both for the students at Oxford Brookes in their education as well as for JRM in developing and testing new products and ideas needed for the industry.”

Chrisina Jayne, Head of School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics says: “With a number of our university graduates having worked for JRM Group, we know it’s a great platform to support motorsport engineers. To be able to work with the JRM team to investigate new projects and potentially be part of key product development that could help improve motorsport progression is fantastic for our students in supporting learning that’s relevant and applicable to the current, as well as the future, motorsport industry while maximising use of the advanced facilities here on campus.”

JRM and Oxford Brookes are now looking to collaborate and support each other in a number of exciting projects throughout 2018. Updates will be available across JRM’s website and social media platforms.
