A record-number of franchisees, guests from leading insurance companies and suppliers to the vehicle repair sector were left in no doubt as to how Fix Auto UK is ‘Driving Forward’ during the network’s annual National Conference, held at the Hilton St George’s Park hotel.

Held over two days, Wednesday was set for some fun activities including Clay Pigeon Shooting and Go Karting before the Welcome Party in the evening. Needless to say Jac was found at the Go Kart Track racing with conference attendees throughout the afternoon. Much fun was had by all who attended with some additional smiles to be seen when Jac was Black Flagged in the final!

The Thursday event was moderated by the Original BBC Top Gear ‘Stig’ Perry McCarthy - a natural comedian bound up in a racing driver's body! Additional speakers included motivational presenter Chris Akabussi and branding expert Alex Hunter.

The presentation evening saw Jac join Ian Pugh and Tom Hadfield on stage where he announced the winners and presented the Fix Auto UK Awards for 2017. Jac was humbled to be part of the proceedings and thanked his sponsors for the opportunity to support their efforts.

Reflecting on the success of the National Conference, Ian Pugh said: “From the feedback we have received, we have achieved our objective of delivering another inspiring and industry-leading conference.  Thanks to our speakers, sponsors and guests, we were again able to deliver an event we are truly proud of.”

Jac would like to add his sincere thanks to his sponsors Fix Auto UK who have wholeheartedly supported his Championship winning year with a special thanks to Tom Hadfield.
