"We're pleased to recognise the latest successes of our automotive industry, particularly after a challenging 2019 car market for a sector which is managing rapid change in technology, systems and processes," said AM editor Tim Rose.

"Congratulations to all the winners, and also to every finalist who was shortlisted by our judging panel."
