A few months overdue (thanks to COVID19), but here are the results of the Drivers Union Annual Awards 2021.

Thank you to all the members who voted. The awards will now return early 2022.

 

The Format


Late last year members were sent an email asking for nominations for the DU Awards. From the nominations received,we selected the top 5 from each category and sent out another email to the members with the list of finalists.

Many thanks to Shahzad Sheikh, former editor of Car Magazine in the Middle East and an automotive journalist for over 30 years who oversaw the awards to ensure it's integrity.

Congratulations to all finalists and the winners.
