Top Technician 2017 reached the final last week, and all eyes now turn towards Top Tech Live, where the winner will be announced in September.
The final took place on Thursday 13 July at the RMI Academy of Skills in Southam, Warwickshire as the remaining contestants threw themselves into the last tasks of the competition.
The finalists were:
Shaun Miller Miller’s Garage, Berkshire
Kevin Toms FRL Autoservices, Devon
Karl Weaver Bull Lane Garage, Kent
Richard Lukins Fiorano Cars, London
Neil Currie Robertson Gemini, Dumfries & Galloway
Each of the five faced the range of challenges with aplomb, but only one can be named Top Technician for 2017.
Top Tech Live
All the finalists will be on hand at Top Tech Live on Saturday 16 September at the Henry Ford Academy to see who will be revealed as the winner for 2017, along with winners from the past and many significant figures from the sector.
There’s far more to the day than the announcement though.
Top Tech Live is able to offer an exclusive Ford technical seminar as a result of the location. This is a rare opportunity to receive official instruction from a Ford technical trainer and you will want to make sure you take part.
Then there are the speakers. A number of judges from the final will be there. Andy Savva, David Massey of ADS, Pico’s Steve Smith and John Batten from AutoIQ will all be giving top-level presentations on a range of topics
Joining them will be Rob Lewis of Jaguar Land Rover, Peter Coombes of Tech Club and Eliot Smith, as well as representatives from Snap-on, Our Virtual Academy and the Automotive Glazing Academy.
That’s a packed schedule for one day, and it’s easy to make sure you are there.
Tickets are £82 plus VAT to the general public, but anyone who entered the competition gets a special discount and pays just £62 plus VAT.
