Hi there, hope this helps:-


As a motorsport engineer working in design, testing or production, your day-to-day duties may include:


assessing new ideas by looking at performance, strength, costs and safety
designing prototypes with computer-aided design (CAD) software
testing components and bodywork
testing working models on the track
building production models and carrying out quality control checks
'finishing' vehicles with the team's colors and sponsorship logos
As a motorsport engineer working in racing, your day-to-day duties may include:


setting up vehicles to suit track and weather conditions
monitoring engine speed and other data during races
fine tuning the vehicle and sending technical instructions to the driver or rider
carrying out ‘after-tests’ on vehicles after a race to look for signs of damage


Thanks.
