CoolDrive Auto Parts continues to deliver upon its commitment to workshops to ensure they are prepared for the future, recently hosting its second Specialist Training Event for 2022.
Held from 19-21 August to coincide with Supercars at Sandown, the event kicked off on the Friday with a number of training courses hosted at the CoolDrive Racing workshop.
A range of topics were covered including: • ADAS Fundamentals & Calibrations • Diesel Emission Technology • Understanding Common Rail Diesel • PICOScope & Waveform Analysis • How to use Scan Tools to Diagnose System Faults • Secure Gateway • Air Conditioning Diagnostics • Modern Vehicle Technology • Introduction to Anaerobic Technology
The weekend saw the action move to Sandown Raceway with guests treated to a full CoolDrive Racing Experience which included the hospitality of the Corporate Suite.
Racetrack benefits comprised of course car rides, a grid walk experience, tours of the CoolDrive Racing Supercars pits, the CoolDrive Aussie Racing Car pits, the Super2 pits as well as a Gen 3 Supercar tour, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the weekend’s racing action.
There was also a Q&A meet-and-greet session with CoolDrive Racing driver Tim Slade and team owner Tim Blanchard, and another session with CoolDrive Aussie Racing Car drivers, Reece Chapman and Josh Anderson.
One lucky attendee also won a hot lap experience in the CoolDrive Racing Supercar post-race.
“Our Sandown Specialist Training Event was a resounding success. Following our first training event at the Bathurst 12 Hour, we were fielding multiple enquiries as to when our second event would be. We had people come from all across the country this time, including from north-west Western Australia as well as New Zealand,” Matthew Douglass, Category Manager – Tools and Equipment at CoolDrive Auto Parts said.
“Attendees noted that the training was incredibly relevant to the industry today, and of course how to best prepare for the future. These events are not just a training course, they are also a networking platform for automotive professionals, enabling them to come together, to share knowledge and of course, ensure they remain up-to-date with the latest technologies.
“We were privileged enough to have some of the industry’s most experienced trainers and experts on hand including Clint Flower, Ken Fendle, Darren Todd and Sumin Kim. The team from Bosch delivered training on the ADAS systems more prevalent in modern vehicles, with the technical team from Loctite also delivering a presentation on anaerobic technology.
“It was a great weekend, and we can’t wait to advise on the details of our next Specialist Training Event,” concluded Matthew.
