Entrants from UK universities are invited to answer a brief set by Autocar’s Editor-in-chief, Steve Cropley, to identify, support and develop top automotive talent of the future.

The six best entrants will attend a Dragon’s Den-style judging day, where they’ll have the chance to present their ideas to a panel of leading industry executive to bag the top £7500 cash prize plus one month’s work experience at each of the leading automotive organisations supporting the event.

Last year’s winner Hari Meyyappan impressed judges with his plug-in hybrid electric two-wheeler concept, an idea conceived for India’s crop of 100cc scooters.

Hari has currently completed his first stint of work experience at the Marshall Motor Group, with the beginning of June marking the start of further experience in Peugeot’s R&D centre, followed by more experience at Honda, Toyota and Mercedes.

Entries for the ‘money-can't-buy’ opportunity close on the 28th August 2011.
