Ontario hosted their 1st ever Regional Build Your Own PC Race as part of the Regional Consumer Races at the Etobicoke TigerDirect.ca Retail store with a total of 17 contestants ready to match their tech skills against each other and against the clock.
When it was all over, at 5:56, Gangadhar Vaidy is the Canadian qualifier to go to CES in Las Vegas to compete for the North American PC Race crown. In addition to the $500 gift card Gangadhar walked away with, $500 will also be donated to The Canadian Diabetic Association.
In second place was Sid Verma, winning $250 gift card and matching that with a donation to The Sick Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Third place, a $100 win, went to Dale Nguyen. Dale designated the Vietnamese Women’s Association as the beneficiary of the matching $100 donation.
