Our very own Bevan Holmes from TeamMoto Northside has taken the crown at the 2019 Oceania Motorcycle Technician Grand Prix at Yamaha Motor Australia head office on 30 October
A highly trained field of six Yamaha Technician Academy students battled it out over a full day of 30-minute pressure-test tasks covering everything from fault diagnosis through to customer service, all under the watchful eye of experienced judges. Holmes managed to hold out a fast-finishing Lincoln Brien from Chris Watson Motorcycles, who claimed the runner up position.
Holmes will now pitch his skills against the world’s best Yamaha technicians at the World Technician Grand Prix to be held at Yamaha headquarters in Japan in October next year, and admitted the nerves have already started. “I’ll be working closely with Carl Rollinson from Yamaha Motor Australia between now and when I leave for Japan so I can be fully prepared. I’m looking forward to it and can’t wait to get started.”
Yamaha Motor Australia would like to wish Bevan Holmes all the best in Japan, and also congratulate all six finalists who took part in the 2019 Oceania Technician Grand Prix, as well as all those who took part in the qualifying rounds.
From the team at TeamMoto, we are very proud and wish you all the best in Japan at Yamaha headquarters when you represent Australia at the international competition.
