Published:  24 May, 2012

FOLLOWING the success of the Top Tech live event, held in Mercedes-Benz World last Friday, the team at Crystal Communications (who are the owners of Aftermarket magazine) have confirmed that the event will return again next year.

Last week's event saw eleven presentations from the UK's top trainers and tool makers. Highlights of the day included a practical demonstration of a CAN Bus problem by James Dillon, a discussion on the merits of cleaning DPFs with chemical cleaner by David Massey and a working demo of a Range Rover twin-turbo system by Rob Lewis of Jaguar Land-Rover. The speakers presented to a capacity crowd in the stunning Brooklands venue.

The culmination of the day was the award for Top Technician 2012. Aberystwyth- based tech Gareth Edwards narrowly beat Dan Wright to scoop the gong and the £15,000 prize fund.

"The format proved to be a success with delegates, so we are planning to have more of the same next year - but it will be bigger - and even more technical" confirmed event manager Nicola St Clair.
