CAT AWARD WINNERS 2016

We would like to start off by saying a big congratulations to all our winners and nominees who took part at this 2016CATAwards005year’s CAT Awards. It was a great turn out with 150-strong aftermarket professionals attending the awards at Twickenham Stadium to support CAT and their businesses.

Greg Whitaker, Editor of CAT, commented: “It was great to see so many people take time away from their businesses to celebrate the best of the industry, although I had to cover my ears for some of Paddy’s racier stories!”.

We were luckily enough to have aftermarket legend Paddy Hopkirk drop in to share some funny anecdotes of his automotive career spanning over 60 years. As usual, Hopkirk always loves to leave a lasting impression and this time he left our aftermarket guests in fits of laughter.

Simon Albert, Event Director for Automechanika Birmingham, provided an exclusive update on the first Automechanika UK launch and the reasons for launching at the NEC in 2016.

Some of you may already know that Brake Engineering won ‘Supplier of the Year’, but we don’t want to give too much away on here. The rest of the winners along with the full coverage of the CAT Awards 2016 will be announced in the next issue.
