CAT Award brings ABP recognition from on high

You might think that the glory of winning a CAT Award stops at the trophy – but you’d be wrong.

On Friday morning I went to see CAT Magazine’s hat-trick Garage of the Year winners ABP Motorsport in Crewe, and I can see why this business is consistently named among the top garages in the UK.

You can read more about my visit to ABP in the March issue of CAT, but for now I wanted to share this snippet passed on by ABP Owner Chris Meredith. As well as all the local media attention his business has enjoyed after winning its third CAT Award, the acheivement has also been recognised in the corridors of power.

Imagine Chris’ surprise when this letter arrived from the houses of Parliament:

Edward Timpson letter to ABP

Not bad at all.
