City mechanics to compete for Castrol Golden Spanner Award
The Castrol Golden Spanner Awards were instituted in 2008 with the objective of recognising and honouring the most skilled and knowledgeable ‘Ustaad’ car mechanics across India. Over 5000 mechanics participated in the competition last year and more than 200 mechanics emerged as members of this elite ‘Ustaad’ group in 2008.
Stage II will include the City level semi-finals and finals which will be a test of knowledge, hands-on-skills and customer centricity. The winner of the City level competition will represent the City at the National Finals. This year’s finals will evaluate the mechanics’ real life, practical, diagnostic and repair skills on actual cars, besides testing their theoretical knowledge as well.
Over 200 mechanics were enrolled in the Pune leg of the competition and will now have an opportunity to be recognized as the Pune City Winner of the Castrol Golden Spanner Award 2009, at the City Finals to be held in May this year. They will also get a chance to contest in the National Finals to be held in June 2009.
