A DRIVER from Penycae has been declared the North Wales and North West region's top driving brain in a Dunlop Tyres competition.
Peter Robinson-Hudson, from Penycae, will join seven other motorists later in the year as they do battle in the national final.
In conjunction with the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), Dunlop launched its search online and received thousands of entries. Regional finalists were then selected and took part in an in-depth examination-style elimination round.
Geraldine McGovern, communications manageress for Dunlop, said: 'Our search has been open to all motorists but it's getting gradually tougher. Our regional finalists will now pit their wits against the assistant chief examiner of the IAM in a Mastermind-style final. As well as some highly technical and in-depth questions, there will also be plenty of 'off-the-wall' challenges. They'll really need to know their stuff.'
The national winner will be declared the 'Dunlop Driving Brain of Britain', and will win a once-in-a-lifetime driving experience as their reward. It could be driving a Ferrari in Italy, Audi ice-driving in Cortina or the opportunity to drive five of the world's supercars.
Dunlop is committed to promoting tyre and road safety through a campaign of research and communication. The company is closely involved with IAM and Brake and is sole sponsor of the Driving Standards Agency What If? hazard awareness and education programme.
