Sangar Ganesh From Bukit Mertajam WINS The CASTROL Car Mechanic Contest 2017
Sangar Ganesh from ‘Castrol Auto Service Syarikat Seng Hin’ in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, has won the coveted title of ‘Castrol Car Mechanic Contest Champion’ at the recent event, held in Genting Highlands. As champion, Sangar had to overcome tough competition, and go through 3 rounds of gruelling skill challenges over a period of 4 months. Apart from winning this prestigious title, Sangar was also presented with an all-expense paid trip to catch the Renault Sport Formula One Team in Singapore. Bong Teck Hua from ‘Castrol Auto Service Nan Rong Automobile’ in Johor Bahru, Johor and Ho Weng Seng from ‘Castrol Auto Service Sunday Motor’ in Ipoh, Perak, were named the second- and first-runner up respectively at the awards ceremony in Genting Highlands.
The search for some of the most skilful and knowledgeable car mechanics in the country culminated after months of intense battles. Launched in April this year, the Castrol Car Mechanic Contest 2017 was initiated to find and recognise the best experts in the field. The competition was open to 1,200 mechanics from all Castrol Auto Service (CAS) outlets which have built a reputation for being trusted and professional workshops throughout Malaysia. Throughout this contest, the theoretical knowledge and practical expertise of the mechanics were put to the test in order to prove their competencies and abilities in the art of car maintenance and repair. Amongst the 80 professionals who participated in the qualifying and regional rounds, only 20 individuals were selected for the Grand Finale – the third and final round – where they had to contend in a Practical and Theory Challenge to seize the coveted title of the ‘Castrol Car Mechanic Contest Champion’ in Malaysia.
