On this Saturday's episode of MotorTradeRadio.com, Philip Nothard is joined by Umesh Samani of SpecialistCars-Stoke.co.uk to discuss the unfortunate administration of City Motor Holdings, one of this week’s most viewed headlines on Motortrader.com, and Umesh shares his views on how September is performing. In the week's headlines supplied by MotorTrader.com, Listers describe how a number of premium brands helped drive profitability; Rockar introduces Telematic's software to track test drives and deliver mechanical and behavioural feedback. Whilst Dick Lovett is to represent Aston Martin for the first time, with a 25-car showroom and 10-bay workshop; Williams Motor Holdings report a strong trading performance in 2015 with pre-tax profits up 53.7% to £6.3m on turnover up 17.7% to £426.6. They discuss the latest from TrustFord, as they launch an app to help customers manage their needs, and whether this is an area for none-franchise dealers to consider; whilst The European Car Distribution Handbook published by ICDP highlights the variance in new-car sales per main dealer between the European network and the UK. Plus, Philip adds some context and insight into the recent survey results carried out regarding pre-registration activity in September, where a fifth of those responding indicated it could exceed 21% of total new sales, and they finish by debating how Q4 could look.
