Sytner Elite Technician 2024

27 March 2024

The Sytner Elite Technician Challenge 2024. 

The Sytner Group Elite Technician Challenge is our unique, industry leading competition that champions the exceptionally talented Technicians working across our nationwide dealerships and stores.

Supported by our partners; ShellPirelli , CitNOW, Wurth and the The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), exceptional applicants representing each of our brands compete in a theory and practical test to challenge their skills. The prize… a once in a lifetime trip to Indianapolis; featuring a dynamic street festival in the Motor City, the Grand Prix will include three full days of activities and celebration on some of Detroit's most popular and active Downtown areas!

On Wednesday 27th March 2024, the Elite Technician competition came to a climax with the practical final, where the 42 finalists competed to be ultimately named as an ‘Elite Technician’ for their category at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.

Finalists had already completed an online theory assessment in February, which combined with the scores from the practical final, gave Sytner Group their winners for each category.

Working against the clock, the finalists had just 90 minutes to identify and diagnose a variety of real-world failures in vehicles rigged with exterior, interior and engine faults. Following diagnoses, competitors had to record and submit a video describing all faults and the required solutions.

The event was invigilated and regulated by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) and benefitted from primary sponsorship from Shell Helix Motor Oils, and support from Pirelli, CitNOW and Würth.

Keep a look out for our winners enjoying their prize in the coming months!
