Our second apprentice to be recognised was Simon Pickering
He has been working for Formhalls for less than a year. He demonstrated his passion for working in the industry by knocking on the doors of business owners. Charles & Evie Tanner took Simon under their wing and he has demonstrated both the skills and aptitude to be worthy of recognition in a very short period of time.
Simon is also studying at the Heritage Skills Academy Bicester. Simon could also be found at the Practical Classics Magazine stand demonstrating the work he had carried out in the renovation of a Riley 2.5litre engine.
Charles Tanner accepted the award on behalf of Simon's employer Formhalls Vintage and Racing run by Charles and Evie Tanner. They have restored, repaired and re-manufactured bearings and engine blocks for some of the world’s greatest cars.
