SA Guild of Motoring Journalists set to announce the Wesbank Car Of The Year

The South African Guild of Motoring Journalists (SAGMJ) will announce its winner of the Wesbank South African Car Of The Year (CoTY) on Tuesday.

26 jury members got the opportunity test drive the competing vehicles.

Azania Mosaka spoke to Chairperson of the Guild of Motoring Journalists Wesbank Car Of The Year, Bernard Helberg about the occasion and scoring process.

Those judges spend a lot of time not only driving the cars - because they are active motoring journalists in South Africa. But we get them all together at the end of January each year and get all the finalists of the competition together as well. We put them in the cars for two days and they score them using our digital scoring system.
