DENSO’s 2023 League of True Mechanics competition has begun!

Date: Monday 26 June 2023

The League of True Mechanics (LOTM) competition combines technical training with prizes worth more than £2,000, to give technicians throughout the UK and Ireland the opportunity to be named regional champion, and potentially, take the overall European crown!

“We introduced the LOTM in 2020 to provide a little friendly competition to run alongside high quality training and assessment modules to help technicians increase their technical knowledge and improve their overall skillset,” said DENSO Aftermarket Europe, Pan European Strategic Marketing Manager, Fatiha Laauich, “and it became an instant hit with professionals across Europe.
“Similar to last year, the UK competition recognises the top 10 placed finishers, with prizes starting with a range of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing team merchandise, moving up to a SONOS Play One Speaker, a £100 Amazon voucher, and then a £150 Red Letter Day for the technician in fourth place. The level then increases significantly for the top three, with a £250 and then a £500 Red Letter Day experience for the third and second placed finishers and a fantastic European Grand Prix experience for two, for the overall LOTM UK winner!
“Although the study courses from the previous year’s competitions remain on the LOTM area on our e-Learning platform because they are still useful and relevant, to keep the competition fresh and present important additional technical content, we introduce new modules every year. So, this year, we have a new air conditioning compressors module, another on the basic steps of air conditioning servicing and a focus on cabin air filters.
“The DENSO e-learning programme provides detailed technical information and the interactive online courses that the LOTM competition is based on relies on technicians studying the material and a final exam, during which they have the opportunity to win DENSO coins. These coins are awarded by correctly answering the question posed by a ‘mini quiz’ that periodically appears within the modules and then in the final exam at the end.
“The number of DENSO coins earned during the year decides the technician’s overall position in the competition. In addition, all of the regional winners will be entered into the draw to find who will become the overall European 2023 LOTM champion. So, we urge technicians across the UK and Ireland to register today and put themselves in with a chance of winning this fantastic competition.”

Registering for the e-Learning platform is free and straightforward, as technicians simply sign up via the DENSO Aftermarket website – – and while there, they can also sign up to the 2023 LOTM competition.
