NTDA Chief Executive Stefan Hay said; “It’s been another terrific year for entries, with some being without rival and after close scrutiny, 49 have made it through to the finals and are now being assessed by our independent panel of judges. As always, I would have liked to have seen more entries from our tyre retailers, distributors, wholesalers and recyclers, especially as I know, from personal experience, the level of excellence many of them operate to, but nevertheless, we certainly have a battle on our hands across many award categories.

“I’m also surprised that more of our aftermarket equipment supplier members aren’t competing for the crown in that category.

“More than 600 guests have now booked for the 93rd Annual Dinner and we are certain that we’re set for another exceptional, and possibly record-breaking, evening and I am sure that my co-host Louise Minchin will make it even more unique and add her wonderful flair, charm and professionalism to the proceedings.”
