Contest event

The contest consist of eight practical tasks as per twenty five minute. The tasks are always based on anything we have completed in training over the last 2 years and also on basic skills. It is a gruelling contest stretching the technician’s knowledge and abilities. It is always a close outcome between the competitors which is a testament to their skills.

Filco Farm & Sport NZ
I feel very proud and incredibly privileged to be able to compete at the Yamaha WTGP. Competition aside, it is a great opportunity to meet other people from within the industry and from other countries, to compare and share ideas.
I am looking forward to testing my skills and abilities. Overall I am just looking to enjoy the experience and represent Yamaha Oceania as best I can.
My Dream
I would like to progress within the motorcycle industry. Perhaps to employment within Yamaha Motor, I have a keen interest in the R-Max helicopter and would enjoy the opportunity to be involved with this.
Who knows what the future holds.
