publication date: Dec 10, 2018


MotorEasy, a leading provider of warranties, service plans and supporting products, is once again endorsing the prestigious Newspress Awards as headline sponsor of the 2019 event.

Recognising the very best in UK motoring media and industry leading PR specialists, the UK company joins the evening of celebration as the Newspress Awards moves to a new venue in London’s West End, at the famous Quaglino’s restaurant, on 28th March 2019.

Established in 2016, MotorEasy provides quick and easy access to vehicle warranties, service and repairs, GAP insurance, breakdown cover and even reminders for MoT and VED renewals. Founded by industry stalwart Duncan McClure Fisher, with 20+ years of experience, MotorEasy is driven by a team of experts dedicated to providing a one-stop shop for car owners.

Duncan McClure Fisher, CEO and Founder of MotorEasy said, “We are delighted to once again support the Newspress Awards, organised by a company that has been connecting the best of journalism with the car industry for over forty years.

"The 2018 awards event allowed us to explain our new motoring concept to many important industry influencers and we believe that this has contributed to our astonishing success. As the UK’s fastest growing motoring association it’s a privilege to continue our support for such an important event.”

Tim Barfoot, Managing Director of Newspress, added, “We’re thrilled that MotorEasy will be joining us, as next year’s Newspress Awards headline sponsor, as we single out and celebrate the industry’s stars on March 28th. In just four years these independent awards have established themselves as the motoring sector’s media and PR awards, recognising the best of the best in what is an incredibly dynamic and diverse industry.”

The categories of the 2019 Newspress Awards will be announced shortly, and entries for voting open 2 January. As with the 2018 awards there are a number of fully branded sponsorship opportunities allowing automotive and associated companies to put their brand in front of the UK’s elite motoring media and OEMs.
