Autobody Network Sponsors High School in the Baja 1000 Race

PPG Canada Inc. is proud to announce that, for the second consecutive year, it will support the growth of tomorrow’s automotive professionals through the CertifiedFirst Network’s sponsorship of Holy Trinity Catholic High School, located in Simcoe, Ontario, in the annual Baja 1000 Race.
Students will gain valuable, real-world experience by building their own vehicle for the race, which will be funded by PPG in support of the CertifiedFirst Network. Students participating in the race will also gain experience by being part of the pit and film crews and by performing tasks from vehicle prep and logistics to film and media editing.
"PPG Canada, in conjunction with participants in the CertifiedFirst Network, is honoured to sponsor Team Trinity and be a part of such an exciting, educational event," said Keith Burns, manager, Insurance Relations & CertifiedFirst Network for PPG Canada. "We hope our involvement will help provide students the hands-on experience in a dynamic learning environment needed to enhance their employment skills and career opportunities in the future."
The Baja 1000 is an off-road race held in Mexico each November. The race, which begins in Ensenada, Mexico, will take place over four days and ends in the small town of La Paz, Mexico, 1,000 miles later.
After the race to the finish line, a travelling pit crew will continue to promote skilled trades to high school students and professional tradeshows throughout Canada.
