Audi Cork have been crowned 2017 Audi Twin Cup champions seeing off stiff competition from reigning champions Audi North Dublin. It was the first time the Dublin dealership was defeated in the competition’s three year history in Ireland. Audi Galway were the third team to compete in this year’s competition.
As part of the competition each team was put through their paces in numerous tasks across their sectors. The technical teams were charged with identifying and solving complex diagnostic faults and rebuilding a 2.0TDI engine in less than an hour, while the service team followed suit focusing on explaining the use of Audi Connect, a key element of Audi’s product portfolio.
For the final round, the teams combined into their respective dealerships for the Vorsprung durch Technik challenge, testing their collective knowledge of all things Audi. Audi Cork were awarded as the overall winners, excelling with their teamwork and product knowledge.
The Audi Twin Cup was developed by Audi AG to recognise areas of excellence throughout the Audi dealer network worldwide. The Top 6 participants now prepare for the international final in Seville this September where they will represent Audi Ireland, competing against the best Audi teams from around the world.
The results were as follows:
- Pat O’Brien, Audi Cork
- Gordon Page, Audi North Dublin
- Graham Bunnett, Audi North Dublin
- Ciaran Barrett, Audi Cork
- Patrick Madden, Audi Galway
- Darren Gleeson, Audi North Dublin
Steven Stein, Head of Aftersales for Audi Ireland, congratulated Audi Cork on their win:
“Congratulations to Audi Cork on their victory. We wish all participants the best when representing Ireland in Seville this September. The Audi Twin Cup Challenge demands the very best from our Technical and Service teams and brings to the forefront Audi’s commitment to providing unrivalled customer service and support in their field.”
