Sedgemoor Councillor Nick Bayliss, who represents residents in the Highbridge & Burnham Marine area, said:
“I was absolutely devastated reading the news of this morning’s fire at the Motorsports base at Bridgwater College.
The College’s Motorsport program changed my life. All the staff involved are absolutely brilliant and so passionate about what they do. Simon, Josh and the rest of the team really put their hearts and souls into the program and their efforts show, not only in the Road and Race Car Teams’ results but in the many people who finish College and go into incredible Motorsport based careers.
During my course, the teachers took the time to help us individually. They made me believe in myself and showed me I could do whatever I set my mind to.
Motorsport is something that I, and others, feel so passionately about and to be honest, was the one part of my education I actually really enjoyed.”
