The huge event is a leading trade exhibition for the automotive industry and attracted 12,145 visitors when it was held last month.

Jackson and Phillips father and son, Ron Phillips (managing director and owner) and Aaron Phillips (company director), said: “We attended the Garage of the Year awards at The National Motorcycle Museum not knowing if we had even been short listed, so to win the award for Large Garage of the Year was not only a surprise, but an honour.

“This is a great reward for all the effort that the whole team has put in over the last 12 months since being named runners up last year. We hope that this award will allow us to push the business forward and put us in a strong position as we approach our 50th year in business.”
