Rallysport Engineering has two branches in South Essex and has recently opening new premises in Commerce Way, Colchester.

It is a not-for-profit community interest company, specialising in delivering vehicle study qualifications to young people aged between 13 and 16.

The firm helps more than 250 students a week covering the basics of vehicle maintenance through to more complex motor systems.
