The theme for this year’s iteration of South Africa’s definitive automotive awards programme is “Be Part of the Journey – My Car, My Freedom”. As South Africa adapts to the “The New Normal” after many challenging months of national lockdown due to the impact of Covid-19, #CarsAwards recognises the importance of consumers regaining their freedom of movement and the role that car ownership plays in achieving that goal.
