    For motorsport engineering, I would say lboro is good for that course from the three choices given. I would apply to 3 more as you can apply to 6 uni's. By the way, you don't have to do a HND, you could do a BSc/BEng/MEng if you want. The uni's that offer this course are as follows:

    UWE
    Brunel
    Central Lancashire
    City
    Coventry
    Hertfordshire
    Huddersfield
    Kingston
    Warwickshire College, Royal Leamington Spa, Rugby and Moreton Morrell

    I would recommend three more uni's from that list which are Brunel, City, and Kingston.

    I think you could still qualify for those uni's. The minimum you need is 2-3 A-levels. Some uni's might accept 2 AS levels (i.e. physics and maths) to be equivalent to 1 A-level.

    Sheffield Hallam also does automotive engineering, and Manchester uni does general engineering. From 2006 I think MMU are also doing Automotive Engineering and the plus point with all these three (I don't know if that stands for the others that were mentioned) You can join their 'formula student' team, which involves the making of a formula one style car to race internationally with other universities FROM SCRATCH! I know two people competing this year and although it's hard work, they are having the time of their lives, one of them is even studying the formula student car chassis for their third year dissertation.

    Another plus to this is the possibility of getting sponsored (you are more likely to do so with a formula student team) because whilst building the car you have to sweet talk many big blue chip companies into either giving you or discounting many of their goods you need for your car. If you make an impression on that company, you never know where it might lead - This may be the best way to go about it because not many companies will sponsor somone who is doing a HND before they can prove how good they are, it is generally only people who are studying MEng/MSc or a very high standard of BSc/BEng. You just need to get out there and prove yourself.
