DeF Nightshift from Winnipeg, Canada will be the first North American team ever to take part in the VISTA world final after successfully winning the North American final in Greensboro, USA last week.
VCV Townsville parts and service personnel, Sunil Pinto, Mark Borm, Linda Casey and Adam Johns, will travel to Gothenburg for the VISTA World Final in June to compete with the other 29 area finalists from around the globe.
Today in Greenboro, USA a North American VISTA team will qualify for the VISTA world final for the first time in the competition’s history. However VISTA isn’t a new concept in the US and Canada. In fact Volvo Trucks North America have been holding their own VISTA competition since 1995, and started a competition for Mack Trucks in 2009.
Three more teams have now qualified for the VISTA 2011 world final after another highly successful semi final in Latin America. Last week 21 teams from ten different countries met in Curitiba, Brazil, each hoping to earn a place in the world final.
The first round of VISTA semi finals concluded last week, with nine semi finals taking place in Verona, Beesd and Dubai. In what was a busy week for the competition, sixteen teams qualified for the world final, while all teams enjoyed a memorable few days.
This week 19 teams from all over South America will be in Curitiba, Brazil, taking part in the Latin American VISTA semi final. Already VISTA 2011 has been a huge success in the region, with record high participation rates. By Tuesday, we’ll learn which two teams will represent the continent at the world final.
