Ian, who has worked for Dingles Toyota in Attleborough for 11 years, was crowned 2008 service advisor of the year after beating 350 other Toyota employees in a qualifying round and claiming top spot at Toyota's training Academy in Nottingham.
As the winner of that competition, he was invited to take part in the European Skills Grand Prix final in Brussels last week. 24 people from across Europe took part and Ian was the only representative from the UK, eventually coming away with second place - the first time anyone from the UK has come away from the final with a medal in four years.
