BMW Academy apprenticeship

Ben Pearman started with us in 2010 and is currently working through his BMW Academy apprenticeship, and sectioned engine is something that Ben challenged himself to do as a project whilst also learning his trade.

The BMW R 1200GS Boxer Engine assembly was donated to us by a very unfortunate customer who dropped his GS in a river and we had to change his engine as it failed in dramatic style as it stayed running sucking in over 10 litres of water before finally seizing up!

Ben's engine is now available for viewing in Vines Caterham showroom.
