Trade Plates logoTHE creators of Car Dealer Magazine are bringing you an alternative way to digest news about the automotive industry with the new online video channel Trade Plates.

Like no other motoring video channel before, you’ll be part of the story. Twice a month we’ll be holding live panel shows with members of the car trade, talking about the topics you want. Even if you can’t join us in the studio you’ll still be able to join in the conversation through the discussion box on the website.

Hosted by Rebecca Chaplin, this week owner of Prestige Diesels Portsmouth Alexis Cassey, Imperial Car Supermarket operations director Neil Smith and Car Dealer Magazine’s very own Andy Entwistle will be joining her in the studio. Lawgistics legal advisor Nona Bowkis will also be making an appearance to answer your questions live. You can watch at 3pm tomorrow by following this link.

As well as this, we’ll also be bringing you videos about different areas of the motor trade. Some of the best car dealers and workshops in the country have been telling us their stories. We’ll be taking you on a tour of their businesses and showing you their coolest cars.

The first episode of Ultimate Workshops is out this week, with a behind the scenes look at Autofarm. Check out this teaser video here:

We’ll also be taking a look at the best supercar dealerships, the specialist businesses you didn’t know existed in our ‘hidden gems’ series and rare cars for sale. So satisfy your need for supercars, classic motoring, incredible machinery and the people behind them all on the Trade Plates video channel.

This month we’ll be taking a look behind the scenes of Sam Thomas Racing’s workshop and speak to Afzal Kahn about how he made it.
