A NEWLY qualified apprentice at a Morpeth business celebrated in the fast lane.
Adam Sproat, 21, joined four others at an exhilarating sports car race day to mark the successful completion of their three-year apprenticeships with Benfield Motor Group.
They got to drive tail spinning Lamborghinis at the Prodrive Performance Centre in Warwickshire..
Mr Sproat, based at Benfield VW Renault in Castle Square, said: “This was the best end to a great apprenticeship. It has been a lot of hard work but having this to look forward to has been a real incentive.
“Driving a Lamborghini is just something else and has always been something that I have wanted to do and now I have fulfilled that dream.”
He added: “I am now a fully qualified Service Technician and will undergo continual training with lots more courses booked in already.
“My future at Benfield is open with many options and opportunities ahead of me.
“ I have now set my sights on specialising as a Master Technician and I know that I will be supported all the way.”
Group Managing Director Nigel McMinn said: “The five graduates have shown tremendous potential from start to finish and sailed through their on-the-job training with high standards throughout.”
