Mission Motorsport helps former soldier embark on new career with Motorlux Mazda

With a long history of supporting Mission Motorsport, including supporting the the very successful Race of Remembrance, and supplying a Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-30 to help the forces’ motorsport charity with their day-today activities.

When it was it was time for Mission Motorsport to take the pair to Motorlux Mazda in Newbury for their annual service, the charity’s Workshop Manager and Technical Trainer/Assessor Aston Dimmock was met with a nice surprise when he was greeted by a Mission Motorsport Training Wing Student.

Matty Lake, a former soldier in the 1st Battalion, The Parachute Regiment and student on Mission Motorsport’s provided IMI Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Level 3 course is now employed full-time of the Motorlux Mazda in Newbury.

Completing a thorough inspection and service of both vehicles, Aston was able to catch up with Matty as he settles into his new career, Aston, commented: “I’m incredibly proud of Matty. Having trained, mentored, coached and assessed him throughout his studies, it’s amazing to see him so happy and successful in his new role.”

Adding, His line manager and co-workers at Motorlux all speak very highly of Matty and told me how well he is fitting in”.

Supporting Matty in his new career, Motorlux is planning on providing him with the necessary training to become an MOT Technician.

Commenting their support for Mission Motorsport, Richard Shepherd, Managing Director at Motorlux, said: “It was a pleasure helping both Matty and Mission Motorsport with his recent appointment. We as Motorlux have always had a close working relationship with Mission Motorsport and it is a real pleasure for us both to have achieved this.”

Adding, “Too often former veterans are overlooked when offering their services following the end of their forces career. The training facility is first class at Mission Motorsport and many of our technicians have had formal training there.”
