Engineering students from the Peele Community College in Long Sutton had a fantastic opportunity to look behind the scenes at Boston Vertu Honda.

Service manager John Parrot took students through the complex process of booking a car into the workshops, identification of vehicle details, ordering parts and then into the workshop to see professional Honda technicians servicing customer vehicles.

The exchange was not all one way though. Peele students were able to show their gravity racer which competed in the recent Coleby Downhill Challenge at speeds of over 45mph.

DT head of department iain Smith thanked Honda general manager Chris Duggan for giving students such a memorable day.
