We launched the Car Dealer Awards to find the best people and the best businesses in the South African automotive industry.

With your help, we’ve received hundreds of nominations so far, and for that; we’d like to say thank you.

Many were so heart-warming, that it just didn’t makes sense to keep them wrapped up – we decided to shine a light on them to celebrate the goodness in South Africa’s automotive industry.

So look out for Feel-Good Fridays, we’ll be running these articles often, because people who do good things should be recognised.  Be sure to sign up for positivity updates.
