Nick Carpenter is Technical Director of UK-based Delta Motorsport, leading all R&D, design and simulation activities. Prior to establishing Delta Motorsport, Nick has held a variety of engineering positions in the road and race car sectors.
After graduating from Loughborough University with a BEng (Hons) in Automotive Engineering, he spent 4 years working in mainstream automotive Tier 1 companies before joining Reynard Motorsport as a design engineer in 1996. Over the next 5 years he worked his way up to the position of Assistant Chief Designer on the 02S Le Mans prototype race car. Nick then moved to take a role as Chief Engineer at Piper Design in London, leading the engineering team on a variety of projects from the FP1 Foggy Petronas race motorcycle to a hydrogen fuel cell hybrid city car.
Delta Motorsport has carried out a wide variety of road and race car programs, and in recent years it has broadened its capabilities significantly into the electric and hybrid sector, and now carries out high voltage systems design and engineering projects for a number of clients, including mainstream vehicle manufacturers. This capability has been demonstrated through the design and build of Delta’s own all-new electric passenger car, the E-4 Coupe.
