Top Technician Competition Open for Entrants
The competition to find the UK’s best mechanics, Top Technician 2010 has opened for entries and nominations at the website www.toptechnician.co.uk. The winner will be announced after three competitive assessment stages at Workshop 2010, the industry’s own parts and equipment exhibition, at the NEC Birmingham on 15 April, 2010. S/He will be awarded £2,500 tax-free, alongside thousands of pounds’ worth of prizes and – a press release for the competition states – “priceless publicity for you and your business.” Entrants must complete the initial online test by 8 January, 2010. The prize is sponsored by Blueprint, Comma Oil & Chemicals, Delphi, Euro Car Parts, Lemforder and Motor Codes.
The release continues: “Top Technician is an annual competition that recognises and rewards the best mechanics in the UK. Entrants initially face an online test created by Chief Judge Ian Gillgrass of the Institute of the Motor Industry which must be completed before January 8th 2010. The 24 highest-scoring entrants are then invited to a practical assessment in February and the final twelve compete at finals in March.
“The Top Technician competition was created 7 years ago to help change the public’s misconception of ‘cowboy’ repairers and to reward the many highly-skilled technicians who face complex technology everyday in their garages,” it concludes.
