MotoStudent has proven to be an experience that leaves an imprint on the students, a point of reference in their careers, where they can turn their passion into their profession. Good proof of this are the many students who have participated in previous MotoStudent Editions and are currently working in prestigious competitions like MotoGP, Formula 1 or WorldSBK, as well as all those who have found their place in the development departments of major motor companies. It has also led to the creation of start-ups that have successfully found their way into the technology market. In addition, and thanks to the collaboration with Red Bull, the MS1 Phase gets an extra boost of energy from the Red Bull MotoBoost, creating a permanent challenge in the Competition. All students registered in the VII Edition will have an additional bonus of motivation and support in their professional career. This collaboration provides them with the ideal ecosystem for their immediate future, an environment that brings together leading professionals in the sector, pioneering industries and top-level competitions.
