Displaying his highly tuned diagnosis and repair skills, Scott edged out five other finalists in the final round, which included major diagnostic and troubleshooting tasks, assessed by a panel of judges.

The in-house competition is open to all Penske Detroit Guild members in Australia and New Zealand and offers technicians an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and be recognised as the leading Detroit technician.

"Penske provides comprehensive training to all of our technicians and the Master Technician award is a great way to recognise our talented staff who excel in the workplace," Bob Akers, national technical training manager, says.

"At Penske, our philosophy is to ensure our customers are first. Our world-class technicians are key to achieving this, providing excellent customer service.

"Our Detroit-loyal customers expect the best when they visit one of our many branches along with the highest levels of service from our factory-trained technicians, and that is what they are presented with."

As part of the prize, Scott received an all-expenses paid trip to the US, including a full Detroit factory experience.
