June 27, 2014- (Toronto) - After months of gruelling tests and interviews, Yamaha's top nine technicians from across Canada arrived at Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. headquarters in Toronto for the 2014 Technician Grand Prix.

Competitors were put through nine skill-testing labs that included Yamaha computer systems, troubleshooting mechanical issues and precision measurement. In the end, Nick King of Kelowna Yamaha in Kelowna, BC was awarded the title of 2014 Yamaha Canadian Tech GP Champion!

Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. National Manager - Service, Jeff Waite said "The Tech GP is a contest that pits the very best Yamaha technicians to promote Yamaha's worldwide service network. For Canadian dealers and their technicians, Tech GP is a prestigious event rewarding their on-going training as well as a level of excellence and commitment."

Second place was awarded to Greg Zeniuk from Riverside Yamaha in St-Albert, Alberta and rounding out the top three was Brett Hart from Blackfoot Motorsports in Calgary, Alberta.

The journey doesn't end here for Nick. In September, he will fly to Japan to represent Canada in the Yamaha Motor Technician World Championships. King will compete against Yamaha Technicians from across the globe for a chance at the World Championship title.

Yamaha Motor Canada would like to thank all competitors and wish Nick King the best of luck in his quest for the title of Yamaha's Technician Grand Prix World Champion!
