Following the success of last year’s event, multi-award winning engine decontamination specialist, EDT Automotive, will once again sponsor Automechanika’s ‘Garage of the Year’ ceremony, in association with Garage Wire.
Held on Wednesday 5th June, this year’s evening event will be relocated to the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham to celebrate the best that the automotive aftermarket has to offer.
The competition will be extended to cover nine categories in total, allowing the ‘Best Small Garage’ and ‘Best Large Garage’ awards to celebrate northern and southern regional winners.
New categories include ‘Garage Owner of the Year’, ‘Outstanding Achievement’ and ‘Commitment to Training and Standards’, while ‘Best Community Initiative’, ‘Technology Innovation’ and ‘Business Innovation’ return from last year.
Garages may be submitted into more than one category, providing an explanation of why they believe that their business deserves to win and be in with a chance to get their hands on the £1,000 cash prize.
All submissions must be received by Friday 17th May, and shortlisted garages will receive two free tickets to attend the dinner, sponsored by EDT Automotive and others.
Managing director, David Holmes, said: “Last year’s ceremony was a fantastic evening: a relaxing and informal way to recognise the achievements of independents big and small from across the country.
“I will be contacting each of our garage partners and encouraging them to enter.”
