James BaggottCar Dealer Magazine’s founder James Baggott has been highly commended in the Guild of Motoring Writers annual awards.

Baggott – who writes a monthly column for Car Dealer and contributes regular features to the magazine – was commended in the Prova PR Business Writer of the Year category at the event held at the RAC Club in London last week.

His series of features and interviews about the rise in pre-registrations, his monthly column and a feature about his trip to the largest Kia dealer in the world formed part of the work he was recognised for.

Attending the event were HRH Prince Michael of Kent, Guild President Nick Mason and BRDC President Derek Warwick.

The recognition for Baggott follows a hugely successful year for Car Dealer. In September the magazine was named Best Business Publication at the Headline Auto Awards.

This was the second time in three years that Car Dealer has picked up the illustrious title beating off competition from Motor Trader, Fleet News, BusinessCar and Professional Driver. AM was not nominated.

‘I am absolutely delighted to be recognised in the Guild of Motoring Writers awards,’ said Baggott. ‘This has been a truly fantastic year for Car Dealer.

‘We’ve held the largest ever conference for the motor trade in the UK, our Used Car Awards were hugely popular and we’ve won Best Business Publication for the second time in three years – this latest recognition really is the icing on the cake.’
