Kirk Davies is Manchester CP Pit Stop Challenge Champion

Kirk Davies, a mechanic for Dyfed Powys Police became the second Chicago Pneumatic Pit Stop Challenge winner, by setting the fastest time at MECHANEX in Manchester.

Kirk set a time of 26.49 seconds, which was the quickest over the two days at Event City earlier this month, a feat which earned him a prize of a CP8848 Cordless Impact Wrench Kit.

The challenge

Using the CP8848 Cordless 1/2” Impact Wrench, the wheel change challenge requires entrants to remove the bolts and wheel from the hub, touch the wheel to the metal base floor and then put the wheel back on the hub and fasten the five studs, in the fastest time.

The time was still some way short of the fastest of the year so far though, 17.34 seconds, set by Ben Enter at Alexandra Palace in April.
