Close, but no cigar…

When you’re up against the best-of-the-best, you can’t always expect to take home a trophy, but you should definitely go home with your head held high.

On the same night that England took on Croatia in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Redline team were also facing some stiff competition at the 2018 Motor Trader Awards – the biggest and best-established awards for the UK motor industry, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Short-listed for Used Car Retailer Of The Year, Redline was competing against some of the biggest and best-known car supermarkets in the country. The nominees were:

Big Motoring World

Carbase

Cartime

Evans Halshaw Car Store

HPL Motors

Imperial Cars

McCarthy Cars

Redline Specialist Cars.

 

Our very own Dean Bartle was also nominated in the Sales Manager of the Year category.

 

The organisers made last minute arrangements for the England vs Croatia game to be shown during the event and the 1000 attendees lent strong support to the England squad.

Sadly it wasn’t to be – for England, Redline, or Dean – but it served as a reminder that you can never rest on your laurels and there’s always more you can do to get better, particularly when the competition is so strong!

Well done to all the winners on the night – you deserve it.
