Ten teams from the UK and Ireland have reach the semi-finals of Volvo Trucks’ and Volvo Buses’ worldwide competition and training programme for mechanics and service personnel.

After three rounds of theoretical questions, around 150 teams worldwide have progressed to one of 16 semi-finals held in nine locations, where 30 teams will qualify for the World Final in Gothenburg in June.

The successful UK and Irish teams are from Volvo dealerships in Felixstowe, Norwich, Trafford Park, West Thurrock, Hythe in Kent, Preston, Ayr, Spalding, Glasgow and Cork (Ireland).

Their semi-final will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece in mid-April.
