If you've ever wanted to work on the technical side of motorcycle racing, now is your chance. FTR, the engineering company producing the FTR M211 Moto2 chassis, and reportedly building the aluminium chassis being raced by Valentino Rossi on the Ducati - though both Ducati and FTR continue to officially deny it - are looking to take on more people to help with their operation.
Based in Buckingham, a small but rather charming English county town, at one end of the UK's so-called F1 Valley, which stretches from there all the way up past Northampton, FTR have built a reputation for outstanding engineering and manufacturing. FTR have been involved in motorcycle racing at various levels, manufacturing parts for MotoGP teams and manufacturers, as well as teams in bot the World Superbike and British Superbike championships. On the visits I have paid to FTR's factory, I have always been struck by the passion for racing on display at every level of the company, and the dedication, humor and wit with which they go about their jobs.
And now you, too, can be part of the process of building the fastest motorcycles in the world. According to their website, FTR are looking to hire people in several key positions. If you are an experienced welder, or an outstanding project manager, or spent years in purchasing, and are utterly passionate about motorcycle racing, this is your chance.
