Driving Day


All the stars turn out for the WGMW Driving Day


The Western Group of Motoring Writers annual driving day is the unique opportunity for public relations officers in the motor industry to drive competitors' products back to back for product knowledge and evaluation in a private & closed environment.


The invitation-only event each June blends both on-road and on-circuit driving with an element of fun and charity fund raising built in.

Scores of industry executives and current models assemble for the event organised and run by the Western Group of Motoring Writers. 

More details of this year's event will be published here for those registered and you can see images from previous years using the links below.
