Twenty one employees of Belron-owned shops competed in the Best of Belron competition last week at the Formula 1 race track "Nürburgring" in Germany.

Others recognized for quality work were runners up: Laurent Doneux, representing the Belgium/Luxenbourg region, Matt Walsh from Australia, Richard Sittlington of New Zealand and Joris Meesen of the Netherlands.

Jason Dansey of the United Kingdom received the Smart Thinking award, having recognized and resolved "a number of 'bear traps'" designed to stump competitors.
