Porsche Centre Glsgow is pleased to announce our 1st year Apprentice Technician - Stuart Gemmel, made it to the finals of the Elite Technician Competition 2018.
With approximately 300 entrants, Stuart was one of 30 technicians who made it to the finals of the competition. All technicians who wanted to apply had to sit an entry test and following this, a theory test to secure their place in the final.
Once at the finals, Stuart and his fellow finalists were given just over an hour minutes to carry out a Vehicle Health Check and detect 21 faults that had been put on their car, as well as making a CitNow video with their findings.
We are extremely proud of Stuart for getting to the finals of this year’s competition, where as a 1st year Apprentice Technician he was up against Bronze and Silver Technicians.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
