Default 2005 Subaru Technician World Championship, November 1-7, Tokyo

Subaru Deutschland issued a press release yesterday (see http://www.subaru-presse.de/news2005...ikerWM2005.htm). Here's my not-so-hot translation:
The Subaru Mechanic 2005 World Championship
National champions compete in Tokyo for the title

Subaru is looking for the "world champion of Subaru mechanics." National champions will be determined in national preliminaries through August. Then, during November 1-7, 2005, the national champions will compete in Tokyo for the world champion title. Only the best technician from each country will travel to Japan in order to compete in the finals against the rest of the world during the Tokyo Motor Show. Only the best make a "champion" from themselves.

The first "German Subaru Technician Championship" (Deutsche Subaru Techniker Meisterschaft - DSTM) will count as qualification for the world championship . Every qualified Subaru mechanic can take part. During the preliminaries in the theory section, the participants must correctly answer questionnaires with ten questions, each regarding Subaru technology. The ten best mechanics from this theoretical part then participate in the German championship June 12-13 in Friedberg. Once there, the abilities in a vehicle are tested. The mechanics can expect any conceivable problem, from a defective stoplight to a worn clutch to a tricky brake hose. Therefore he may take a repair manual for help during the practical exam. Then the German champion flies to the world championship in Tokyo and, in addition, can take along companion to wish him luck.

In Japan the conditions for the participants from all the countries will be identical. The elimination is hard and only one will win. During the theoretical examination 25 questions regarding Subaru technology are to be answered correctly within one hour. This part counts for 25 per cent of the total. Then follows a two-hour practical portion in which the mechanics must diagnose and repair a prepared Forester and Impreza (2006 models). The winner will travel home with the title "world champion."
I wonder if SOA will hold a US championship. I think they should.
