LAND ROVER'S new Experience Centre in Honiton, Devon today plays host to the first of eight regional heats in the nationwide ACO 4x4 Construction Challenge.
Fifteen teams from construction firms across the region are competing in the South West heat. During the day-long event the three strong teams will be set a series of driving, cycling and orienteering challenges designed by Land Rover to test initiative and teamwork.
The winner will go forward to the two day final at Land Rover's Gaydon test centre in Warwickshire in November with a chance to win adventure holidays, mountain bikes and Land Rover clothing and outdoor equipment.
This free competition is organised by drainage specialist ACO with Land Rover Experiences, which has nine purpose-built 4x4 centres around the UK. Heats will continue throughout September and October across the UK.
Teams are encouraged to put themselves forward to compete in the forthcoming heats in North Yorkshire, the Malverns, the Chilterns, Scotland, Snowdonia, East of England and the South East.
All NCE readers completing the entry form will be entered into a free prize draw to win a Claude Butler mountain bike.
Entrants will also be signed up for the on-line Construction Knowledge Challenge.
Overseen by the Chartered Institute of Building, this enables construction professionals to gain regular continuous professional development by answering a series of simple questions by email.
