HonestJohn.co.uk named Best Automotive Website at Newspress Awards

HonestJohn.co.uk has been crowned Best Automotive Website by a panel of industry judges at the inaugural Newspress Awards, beating carmagazine.co.uk, evo.co.uk and carbuyer.co.uk. A total of 22 awards were handed out to motoring journalists, press offices and publications.

The panel of judges, which included Daily Mail Motoring Editor Ray Massey, BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Adam Parsons and Head of Public Relations for the AA, Ian Crowder, said: “This website demonstrates strong engagement with the public, generates proper news and genuine exclusives. The stats are equally strong.”

Tim Barfoot, Newspress Managing Director, said: “Congratulations to everyone who was recognised at the first ever Newspress Awards. The event was a resounding success, with a huge number of entries across all of the categories, and the ceremony was a great opportunity for the industry to come together and recognise the successes of automotive media and PR people.”

Daniel Harrison, Editor of HonestJohn.co.uk, added: “The team at HonestJohn.co.uk works so hard to make sure our users are the best-informed and best-advised when it comes to buying, owning and running a car. But we couldn’t do it without our readers who keep us up to date, every day telling us about faults, fuel consumption and their local dealer experience.”
