Two automotive technician students from St. Brother Andre Catholic High School in Markham, Ontario, prevailed over 18 other Toronto-area high school teams to win a high-octane skills competition at the Canadian International AutoShow on February 15, 2017.
Ryan Gullage and Michael Lamanna performed a number of timed technical tasks and worked on a new Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen that had been rigged with a no-start condition by automotive instructors from Centennial College. The Toronto college operates Canada's largest transportation technology training centre.
By finishing first, the pair will be representing Canada at the National Automotive Technology Competition in New York City in April. In addition to the all-expenses-paid trip, Gullage and Lamanna received tools and equipment from sponsors.
Congratulations Ryan and Michael!
