Teenage Turbo Queen Casey Allen is looking at a bright future as a mechanical engineer.

Casey, aged 17, is currently completing her Level 2 Apprenticeship in mechanical engineering at Foxwood Diesel, an engine reconditioning and engine rebuilding specialist for the bus and coach industries, based in Old Whittington, Chesterfield.

Former Brookfield School student Casey began working at Foxwood Diesel when she was 15 as part of a work experience organised by her school.

“Originally I wanted to be a teacher but I also wanted to do something different,” she said.

“Being a massive fan of cars my dream job was to fix F1 cars in the pits, so I was really intrigued by engineering.
