MTA WA apprentices are invited to join a professional rally team!
In rallying, it is often said, “...it takes two to win and two to crash”. Driver and co-driver must be “in-sync” at all times.
However, at GTi Racing, we say “...it takes 26 to win and 26 to crash!” Every member on our service crew directly contributes to the performance of our driving crews.

Australian Motor Body Repairers Association (AMBRA) chairman Jeff Williams voices his concerns on parts procurement policies and industry direction.
Some manufacturers have stopped publishing trade or list prices on certain parts and where this is happening insurers are saying that they will only pay the last published list price, even if this is many months old and out of date. This has come about because some insurers decided to dictate aftermarket or parallel parts to repairers while forgetting to tell the policy holders and the OEM’S what they were up to.

"Codies will be the new tradies" was just one of the many predictions for the short term future aired at MTA Q's one day conference in Brisbane on 7 March.
That's people who code - in case you've never heard the term 'codies' which, I must admit, I hadn't. The agenda was all about preparing for the future. While it was admitted that we're not that great at predicting future we all know that there are plenty of ideas and changes definitely heading our way, such as fully autonomous cars, and that the question is not if but when.
