Universal Technical Institute Hosts Torque Meet Tour On Its Exton Campus

EXTON, Pa., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Universal Technical Institute (UTI) – the leading provider of automotive, diesel, motorcycle and marine technician training – is hosting the third stop of the Torque Meet Tour, a five-city automotive event series held exclusively at UTI campuses across the county.  Open to the public at no charge, the event will be held Saturday, June 22 nd from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT at UTI's Exton campus in Chester County.

The Torque Meet Tour showcases a variety of automotive vehicles, from classics to exotics to customized cars and trucks. Auto enthusiasts can display their vehicles free of charge and enter to win raffle prizes, such as diecast models and auto-related apparel. All vehicles on display are also eligible to win awards for "best overall build" and "hottest supercharged setup." In addition to showcasing the public's automobiles, the Torque Meet Tour provides attendees an opportunity to interact with fellow auto enthusiasts and shop at local vendor tables. Attendees can also experience the thrill of radio-controlled (RC) drifting on a track sponsored by Driftsylvania and enter to win a custom 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

"UTI's Exton campus is the ideal setting for the Torque Meet Tour, a one-of-a-kind event that not only excites our students, but also demonstrates a potential career in the automotive field," said Steve McElfresh, Interim Campus President at UTI-Exton. "At UTI, we're committed to equipping our students with the knowledge and skills needed to become quality entry-level technicians. Combining these skills with creativity and passion can lead our graduates to building and repairing vehicles such as those featured at this event."

To bring the Torque Meet Tour to the public, UTI teamed up with Neil Tjin, one of the top up-and-coming automotive designers. With more than 15 years of experience in the automotive aftermarket, Tjin has designed and built more than 60 high-profile vehicles and worked with numerous manufacturers, including the Ford Motor Company and Honda North America, among others.

Earlier this year, the Torque Meet Tour stopped at UTI's campuses in Orlando, FL and Glendale Heights, IL. After UTI-Exton's event, it will head to Norwood, MA before rounding out the national tour in Avondale, AZ.

Members of the public interested in showcasing their vehicles can sign up on the Torque Meet Tour's vehicle registration website. Interested vendors can also participate by completing a form on the vendor registration website.
