It depends what you want to do i F1 or WEC, it’s generally best to develop skills & experience in a focused area which directly applies to the role you wish to apply for.
Depends on what field you want to go into in motorsports. I was in the same boat as you but now know what path I need to follow. Message me and I can help you out

This is the best course as F1 teams recruit from Brookes. Their Formula Student team is the most successful in the whole country.
