My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.

ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

AUTOCAR AWARDS - Carlos Tavares takes the Issigonis Trophy for his work in transforming the PSA GRoup.
Carlos Tavares awarded the Issigonis Trophy
Award presented at a glittering celebration evening at the Silverstone Race Circuit
Last night Autocar honoured the very best cars and people of the automotive industry at the new Autocar Awards, in a glittering ceremony held at the stunning Silverstone Wing of the historic UK Silverstone Race Circuit.
Carlos Tavares, chairman of the managing board of the PSA Group, was named the winner of the Issigonis Trophy in recognition for his work in transforming the PSA Group. The Issigonis Trophy is named after Sir Alec Issigonis, creator of one of the most iconic British cars of all time, the Mini.
Autocar editor, Matt Burt, said: “The new Autocar Awards celebrate the very best that the automotive industry has to offer, be that the cars on sale today or the people behind them. When you consider the fantastic cars produced by Citroën, DS and Peugeot it is no surprise that we have named Carlos Tavares as the winner of our highest honour, the Issigonis Trophy”.
Accepting his award at Silverstone last night, Carlos Tavares said “I am honoured to accept this award on behalf of the PSA Group. Our collective success over the past eighteen months proves to the world our potential. Now, with our 'Push to Pass' strategy in place, we will ensure PSA's continued profitable organic growth over the coming years.”
