Good Garage Scheme mechanic Stuart White is named Top Technician 2010

After an online test, eight 20-minute practical and written challenges, and a one-to-one interview, Good Garage Scheme member Stuart White has been unveiled as the 2010 winner of the annual Top Technician competition.

The boss of Complete Car Maintenance in the village of Ewhurst in Surrey has been a regular finalist in the search for the UK’s top car mechanic but had never taken top spot before. “It’s fantastic,” he said after receiving more than £12,000 worth of prizes. “I felt that I had the best chance of winning I’d ever had this year. All the finalists were absolutely brilliant,” he said.

Runner up of the competition was another Good Garage Scheme member, technician John Tinham, of John Tinham Motor Engineer in Chelmsford.

Angelo Chillari, Administrator of the Good Garage Scheme, commented “It’s good to see dedication and skill rewarded in this industry.”

The competition ceremony, which recognises and rewards the best automotive technicians in the UK, was attended by scores of automotive industry figures, including technical experts Frank Massey and James Dillon. Technical expert Frank Massey said that Stuart had a winning combination of enthusiasm and knowledge. “They say that often a technician makes a bad businessman and vice versa but Stuart can do both. It’s great to see him win because he’s come so close so often before.”

Congratulations to both Stuart White and John Tinham, excellent examples of Good Garage Scheme members.
