Top Technician 2021 finalists announced

The finalists for Top Technician 2021, who will be returning to In Town Automotive on Saturday 9 October, are as follows:

• Adam Cannell, Cedar Garage, Worthing
• Sam Gibbons, Eden Vauxhall, Christchurch
• Simon Parkinson, WDMDL Electrotech, Greater Manchester
• Kevin Toms, FRL Autoservices, Dartmouth
• Andrew West, Erme Valley Autos, Ermington

This group will face a host of 50 minute technical and diagnostic challenges that have been set by the judges during the day. From this group, a runner-up and a winner will be identified. Who will they be? We will find out on Saturday 9 October, as that night the Top Technician and Top Garage Awards Evening will take place at the Jurys Inn Milton Keynes. At the event, the winners will be announced.

The winners for Top Garage will also be announced that evening, as the Top Garage final is also taking place at In Town Automotive at the same time. Here, four groups of garages, classed by size, will compete to be named Top Garage in their class. Congratulations to all five Top Technician finalists, as well as the Top Garage finalists, and thank you to everyone else that has taken part so far.

Top Technician and Top Garage are sponsored by Snap-on, VARTA, TechMan, Motul, Philips and LKQ Euro Car Parts, and come to you in association with ABC Awards, ADS, the Garage Equipment Association (GEA), the Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) and the Independent Garage Association (IGA).
