WELL, here it is. The most eagerly-awaited story of the year for used car dealers everywhere…

Here is the shortlist for the Car Dealer Used Car Awards, which take place at The Brewery in London on Monday, December 1.

The glitzy black-tie event, hosted by Wheeler Dealer TV star Mike Brewer, is already a sell-out, with more than 400 tickets snapped up.

This year has been notable for two exceptional reasons.

First of all, there have been more nominations received this time around than ever before.

And secondly, the quality of the entries has reached an all-time high.

Blackball Media operations director Andy Entwistle, who oversaw the judging process, said: ‘Judging this year has been more robust than ever.

‘And the judges were very impressed by the quality we saw.

‘Some dealers this year have finished fifth in a category with a score that, 12 months ago, would have seen them win a trophy – that’s how tough the competition is.’

So here we go. The shortlist. If you’re on here, take a bow. It’s a serious achievement.

And don’t think you can read our minds and choose the winners from this list. Those shortlisted are in alphabetic order….
