Around 200 professional drivers gathered at Sandown Racecourse last week to test drive a series of vehicles which are in the running for Professional Driver Magazine’s Car of the Year.
Over two days, chauffeurs and other professional drivers took Audis, Volvos, BMWs, Hyundais, Jaguars and Land Rovers out on the roads of Esher.
Aston Lark was one of the main sponsors of the event, alongside Ethos Finance. Ben Dickson and Lee Dicks from our chauffeur team to speak to drivers about their insurance needs, and encouraged people to test their driving skills further on our driving simulator.
Ben says the event was fantastic to be a part of.
‘It was great to get involved with Car of the Year and to get the chance to speak to professional drivers about the challenges of their industry and how to manage their risks,’ he says.
This was the 10th year the event has been run, and the first time the judging was spread out over two days. This allowed more judges to get involved and have their say.
The winner of Car of the Year will be announced at Pro Driver’s QSi Awards dinner on 22nd November.
