AW Repair Group pass Volkswagen Audit with flying colours!

AW Repair Group is pleased to announce they are still among the elite 33 bodyshops across the country to hold Volkswagen full structural aluminium approval.

And today, the group’s prestige repair centre in Sleaford, Lincolnshire has passed their full Volkswagen audit with no minors. The audit took just over 3 hours, and was the quickest audit ever undertaken at the site with everything in its rightful place.

The Lincolnshire site has 2 apprentices on the Volkswagen paint and body programme who are enjoying their ‘on-the-job’ training experiences. Kane is on the first year of his apprenticeship and James is on his second year, both are progressing well and the company is looking forward to watching the young technicians develop their skills over the next few years under the guidance of two senior Volkswagen members of staff, who have both been with the company many years.

Congratulations to all the team in Lincolnshire for their hard work and effort put into the Volkswagen programme.

Belvoir Castle Porsche Pageant 2015

AW Repair Group was delighted to sponsor the trophies for Porsche Club GB Region 4’s Porsche Pageant amidst the beautiful setting of Belvoir Castle, near Grantham.

Driving up the winding country roads to the castle esplanade, where we found an array of Porsche’s ready for display and the owners eagerly polishing away and making their beauties gleam.

We took our stand next to Porsche Nottingham, with our AW Mobile Solution mobile repair van and Gazebo, which proved a perfect shade from the glorious sunshine which was beating down on us (a first for the British weather to cooperate!)

The gates opened to the public at 11am, to stroll around the grounds tour the castle, which is rather impressive and a must! The public could also browse among all of the Porsches on show ready to be judged.

 

Overall 53 cars entered the pageant, a very good turn-out for the first year.We even had a fly past by the Dakota, later on the Vulcan and later on again the Red Arrows – so all in all we couldn’t have done much better.

Judged categories; 1st and 2nd Prize for Water-cooled engines (which we sponsored), 1st and 2nd prize for Air-cooled engines, Best car of show and the Best 912.

A massive congratulations to all winners and a massive thank you to Lord Hugo for presenting the prizes on the day.
