Penske Power Systems this week announced the winner of the Detroit Master Technician contest.
David Willis, a leading hand from Chipping Norton, narrowly outperformed five other finalists in the annual skills and diagnostics contest held in Brisbane last Friday.
These tests included both general procedural tasks as well as advanced diagnostics scenarios to complete.
Open to all Detroit Guild members, the contest saw technicians from around Australia and New Zealand compete in qualification rounds in Brisbane, Auckland, Sydney, and Perth.
According to Penske’s Detroit training manager, Russel Koch, winning the title is “no easy task.”
“The Master Technician competition was hard-fought, bringing out excellence among the six finalists,” says Koch, “This competition demonstrates to our customers the high standards that they can expect from a Penske-trained technician.”As a prize for his win Willis will receive a trip to the United States to tour Detroit, Daimler and Penske motorsport facilities
