Aston Scott are delighted to announce that for the first year we will be sponsoring the prestigious Professional Driver Car of The Year Award taking place on November 23rd, 2017 at the Effingham Park Hotel, Copthorne in West Sussex.
These awards recognise the best cars from seven categories for chauffeur cars, executive vehicles and private hire cars.
The Car of The Year Awards are firmly established as one of the biggest and best reader-judged automotive awards in the industry, with readers of Professional Driver magazine attending the annual judging day earlier this year to evaluate competing cars back-to-back, in real-world conditions.
Along with readers, there were many of the leading operators in the country joining as judges for the day, too. These included heads of chauffeur and private hire firms, experienced chauffeurs and carefully chosen editors and journalists.
More than 60 cars were delivered to the venue for a full day’s evaluation and the judges brought their objective eye and road testing experience to bear, completing 17-point score sheets for each car they tested.
The seven categories are:
- Chauffeur Car
- Executive Car
- Green Car
- Luxury SUV
- Private Hire Car
- Estate Car
We are excited to not only sponsor and give out these awards, but to highlight the passion Aston Scott and our staff has for the industry.
