This year at the Georgian College Auto Show, Hinbest Racing teamed up with the Quick 32 Sportsman Series and the Canadian Automotive Institute to offer a $1000 scholarship package in an effort to give back to the automotive community, and recently the winners of this scholarship were announced.
During the 25th Anniversary Auto Show at the Canadian Automotive Institute at Georgian College, Hinbest Racing and The Quick 32 Sportsman Series presented Patrick Sullivan of Orangeville and Andrew Brimson of Barrie with a $500 cheque. These students worked hard during the show, and showed a passion for the automotive business deserving of the award.
“Being a graduate of the Canadian Automotive Institute I am excited to be able to give something back to the school which has instilled so many skills in myself,” said team driver Mike Hinbest.
To top off the weekend, Hinbest graduated with his Honors bachelor of business automotive management degree, and was chosen as the Valedictorian for the 2010 class.
“It was a ton of work between balancing racing and earning my degree, but it was the best choice I ever made and I’m excited to figure out what is next.”
