Please congratulate Provo High senior automotive students Christian Beaumont and Rich Shriber on their Third place finish, and Timpview seniors Jose Estrada and Dave Forsythe who finished in Fifth place at this years state finals.
With only a few days familiarization with a 2015 Ford Fiesta graciously provided by Larry H Miller Ford in Provo, these two teams had just 90 minutes to find and fix a dozen clever bugs planted by veteran technicians from Ford and AAA.
This years contest was difficult, of the ten new–but bugged–Ford Fiestas, there was not a single team with a perfect vehicle when time was called.
After judging was complete, our teams had both their vehicles back into perfect condition in just a few minutes.
Christian and Rich walked away with a nice trophy for the school, and all four received their choice of several scholarships and hundreds of dollars of tools and electronic equipment.
Watch for event coverage on Fox 13 and in the Deseret News.
