Last year the Institute of the Motor Industry and Castrol, sponsor of the award, invited Automotive Management and AutoExpress to broaden debate in drawing up a short list. Tony Willard, Automotive Management editor, who will be on the judging panel, said: “We're delighted to be so closely associated with this award which has a unique standing in the motor industry.
“Over the years, we have run our own awards to recognise the enterprise of people and companies in the retail motor industry.
“The Castrol/IMI Award is made to someone who has made a special contribution to the industry and to the millions who drive cars.”
A new logo produced by the IMI will be used in the promotion of the award which will be presented at its annual dinner at the London Savoy next March.
Automotive Management readers will have a chance to participate in bringing together names of people, companies and organisations worthy of consideration.##MotorRetailingSponsors.jpg--right##
