Mike may work tirelessly to find classic cars for Edd to restore but he’s not lost touch with his car dealer roots, which is why he joined forces with Car Dealer Magazine to launch the Car Dealer Awards three years ago.

Once again the crème de la crème of the motoring franchise and independent dealerships descended on the aptly named Brewery in London for the biggest and best awards ceremony for this sector of the motoring world.

With 21 awards to give out, Mike held out his hand along with the award and event sponsors. He said: “It’s been a fantastic night, not just for the winners but for the motoring industry. These awards prove what dedication and determination combined with a pride in your work can do. Congratulations to all those who were nominated and the winners on the night. Your success is richly deserved.”
