Derek West

Pit Crew Technician

Favourite Car

The almighty Vauxhall Nova

much better than the BMW E30 of the same era

Derek came to Kelowna from Scotland in March 2015 and joined the Motor Werke team right away. His favourite thing about working here is that it’s never boring; a new challenge awaits him every day. Derek supports the Motor Werke mission to succeed by being thorough, having attention to detail, consistency, teamwork and routine.

It took Derek a year of living in Canada to realize that this was not, in fact, a dream. His time away from work has thus far focused on visiting family in Vancouver. Since the realization that Kelowna is his forever home has set in, he’s sure to set his sights on new travel adventures in the years to come.
