Reacting to his win, Mr Ryan said that the Audi Twin Cup is a great chance to engage in some “healthy competition” with company colleagues.

“The Audi Twin Cup is a great event to have on the calendar, it generates healthy competition among colleagues across sales and aftersales, which I feel really drives us to continue to progress our own skills and knowledge.

“I am delighted to be heading over to Munich to represent Ireland at the Audi Twin Cup finals 2023, it will be a great opportunity to connect with our colleagues from across the globe and also to test our own knowledge on a world stage for the chance at the title of World Champions,” he concluded.

Alan will now on on to represent Audi Limerick at the World Final in Munich, Germany.

After undergoing two online qualifiers earlier this year, the successful competitors represented their dealerships at the national final in Wicklow, which saw entrants presented with comprehensive knowledge tests across four categories including sales, technology, used car sales, and new car sales, with the top two in each category making it through to the world final.

Alan will join colleagues from Sandyford, Sligo, and Naas when he travels to Munich, where they will face 26 country teams for the title of World Champions.
