A British team representing Woodwards Truck and Van Centre, Wigan – Team WOW – took third place competing against twenty-four international teams in the closely contested final of RTEC – Renault Trucks’ international aftersales challenge.
During the final, the 24 four-man teams faced six 45-minute tests, requiring them to perform complex maintenance and repair operations under real conditions.
The performance of the finalists was appraised and marked by experts from Renault Trucks all over the world. Collaboration and teamwork were also recognised, as the ability to work effectively together and use the strengths of each team member were essential for completing the challenges within the allocated time.
‘Team Wow’ had previously competed in the last Finals in 2015. The team comprised Brad Warden, Matt McCall, Gordon MacDonald and Neil Bishop (Team Leader), who commented: “We’ve had a fabulous time throughout the whole RTEC experience, we met some old friends and made new ones whilst in France and to top it off came home with a great result. We couldn’t think of a better way of showcasing the talent that works for the Renault Trucks network here and across the world than through RTEC, we can’t wait until the next competition in which we will hopefully get to the finals for the third time!”
