The six finalist in the Autocar-Courland Next Generation Awards have been announced. They will face a ‘Dragons Den’-style judging day on 7 November, where they will present to judges from Autocar, Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Peugeot, Toyota and Skoda.
The winner will be announced at the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ annual dinner on 27 November.
Autocar publisher Alastair Lewis said: “The 2012 contest has seen an unprecedented number of high quality entries from university students countrywide. The first and second round judges faced an extremely difficult task in carrying out their evaluations.
“We would like to thank all students and university lecturers and faculty heads for embracing the Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award and we look forward to working with them in 2013 as the contest grows and establishes itself on the academic calendar”.
This year’s winner will be rewarded with a work experience package comprising one month sessions at Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Peugeot, Skoda and Toyota, as well as £7500 cash.
