Are we on the road to nowhere?

This is most exciting time for UK automotive in years

‘We know change is coming. It will come whether we want it to or not. Automotive and Motorsport are the most agile industries in the world. If some of the challenges we are facing were put to the marine or aerospace industries, it would take them 2-3 years to start looking at the problem. In that time, we will have addressed the issue, found a solution, implemented it and have moved on.

So what does the changing landscape of the UK mean for us and what are we going to do about it in the near future?’
