Diagnostics expert Dan in semi-finals
Dan Wright, an auto diagnostics expert working at Clive Atthowe Tuning in Salhouse Road, Norwich, has won through to the the semi-finals of the UK Top Technician competition.
Dan's boss, Clive Atthowe, is himself a previous winner of the prestigious award, and when hearing of Dan's success, commented: 'It must be my specialist training!'
Two dozen of Britain's best garage mechanics are gearing up for the demanding semi-final round of the competition.
Hundreds of auto technicians throughout the nation took part in a rigorous oline test designed to test their knowledge on a wide variety of subjects surrounding vehicle diagnostics and repair.
Now Dan, as one of the highest scoring 24, will be assessed later this month on their practical fault-finding skills, with the top six going through to the ultimate challenge of the Top Technician competition finals on April 20.
