 Poppy Merrin-Gregory (Bedford College VTC) | ‘Bonnet No 10’ in the Semi Finals
Lewis Foreman (Alpha Rapid Repair – Kent) | ‘Bonnet No 03’ in the Semi Finals
Alexander Campbell (Dick Lovett – Bristol) | ‘Bonnet No 02’ in the Semi Finals
Vladimir Iliev (Barnfield College – Luton) | ‘Bonnet No 07’ in the Semi Finals
Ben Whitford (Apollo Motor Group – Portsmouth) | ‘Bonnet No 04’ in the Semi Finals

The expert panel of paint technicians that evaluated each entry were thrilled with the quality of the submissions this year and said that the decision to pick the semi-finalists was already a difficult task, let alone the final five.

The five bonnets will be reviewed by an expert panel of judges who will ultimately decide the winner of the £1,000 grand prize, a complete Farecla polishing system and attendance with their mentor (or other +1) as VIP guests of Farécla at the Advanced Engineering Show on October 30 at the NEC Birmingham where their winning entry will be on display at the Farecla stand.
