Team Army shows off techno tricks

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - SA­MAN­THA HEALEY

IT IS one of the best re­cruit­ing tools and “Team Army” is happy to show the crowd what it can do.

Lieu­tenant Colonel Tom Re­gener, from the Army Lo­gis­tic Train­ing Cen­tre in Vic­to­ria, said the team loved mak­ing the trip to Townsville. “We try to make it ev­ery year,” he said. The con­cept of Team Army was de­vel­oped sev­eral years ago to pro­mote the tech­ni­cal trades to mo­tor­sports en­thu­si­asts.

Lt Col Re­gener said that when most peo­ple thought about the army, they as­sumed it was all com­bat roles.

“Aus­tralia doesn’t train enough trades­men, so we have our own tech­ni­cal train­ing school and we run 500 ap­pren­tices through there each year,” he said.
