Busy day yesterday. Went to Company Car In Action (www.companycarinaction.co.uk), a fleet managers’ driving day put on by our sister magazine Fleet News.
I am keen to see if there’s a way AM can get involved by bringing along our own readers to drive the cars.
Certainly, any opportunity to bring dealers and manufacturers together is a good thing.
Could we get manufacturers to use it as a UK launch pad for dealers to test drive new models? Perhaps – save you all spending your precious time travelling to foreign launches!
Yesterday afternoon spent a useful couple of hours with Fiat’s UK boss Giulio Salomone. I’ve heard good things about him from the retail network, who describe him as a breath of fresh air, so I was keen to find out his plans for improve retail profits. Very interesting, as you’ll find out in the June 29 issue of AM when we publish the article.
Have a read and let me know whether you agree with what Giulio has to say.
