A rapidly evolving field...the motorsports industry requires a workforce that is flexible and up to date on current and future technology.
PHCC offers two levels of education and training: Career Studies Certificates for entry level employment and an associate degree for higher level opportunities.
You can also start on a pathway to a four-year engineering degree here!
Motorsports Technology at Patrick Henry Community College is the place to go for a full-service, hands-on education in high-performance racing engines and chassis fabrication.
PHCC Motorsports students work with state-of-the-art equipment and technology including a Serdi Cylinder head valve seat and guide cutting machine, Mittler Pull Down Rig, 3HP Rohrig Shock Dyno and much more.
At Patrick Henry Community College, students get to build the racecars and they get the experience of seeing how they do on the race circuit. The Patriots Race Team includes Bruce Anderson, who drives the No. 73 PHCC Late Model car, and motorsports students who built it from the ground up serving as his pit crew. Anderson is from the South Boston area with more than a decade of racing experience under his belt. He enjoys working with students and sharing his experience on the track.
