Rob Walsh, Motors Category Director, News UK“After establishing our Motor Awards over the past few years, we are delighted to launch this year’s campaign to celebrate the outstanding new vehicles of the last 12 months, as the UK Automotive Industry Adapting, it has never been more important for us to support this sector and shed light on the many wonderful examples of innovation.
“The wide reach of News UK’s motoring audience and the collaboration with our motoring experts makes the Motor Awards a valuable reward for manufacturers. We hope the competition will be as tough as ever and look forward to the crowning of our winners in October.
Will Drone, editor. Driving.co.uk, Commented: “The Motor Awards are back, and it’s fair to say that the car industry is the same. Challenges remain after the Quaid ban, but sales are recovering and new models are flowing into both physical and virtual showrooms.” We’ve seen the launch of a brand new brand and the re-creation of others as they commit electrification.
“As a result, a large number of new cars have come on test drive since the easing of the lockdown. Car buyers are very excited about the breadth of new cars available for purchase right now.
Carl Sharpels, Head of Sales and Marketing, Coopt: “The Motor Awards Partnership is the first for insurance and we are pleased to engage with car owners and fans through content created in partnership with News UK.
