Doha, Qatar – Qatar Car Award is a yearly special edition and award ceremony put together by two of the leading automotive magazines in the Middle East, Maqina and Arabmotors magazines. The event is organized to recognize automotive achievement after putting most of the vehicles in Qatar into their paces, subsequently crowning the best. The first edition of the event was held on May 9 at the St. Regis Hotel.
The automotive industry in Qatar and other nations in the region has witnessed tremendous growth in recent times with more car brands and other such operators in the industry making their way into the region. However, the efforts of car manufacturers and dealers have not been particularly recognized by the media and the outside world in general. Consequently, Maqina and Arabmotors have partnered to organize the first of its kind event to recognize the achievements of car brands and dealers.
The event was attended by different car dealers across Qatar, as well as sponsors and members of the media. The ceremony was a huge success, with the best cars and brands crowned. The best car design category was thrown open to the public, with an online voting held to determine the winner of the award.
The official sponsor of the event, “Champion Oil,” was also appreciated, as well as the outstanding motorsport achievement award going to Qatari rally drivers, Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah and Adel Abdullah.
“It is our duty to recognize all the hard work of the car dealers and celebrate the success of every company and person who contributed in raising the bar of the automotive market or the motorsport,” commented Tarek Hawchar, Founder and Managing Director of Maqina.
“We all know the dedication of all the car makers and dealers and now we finally have an award in Qatar to honour the cars with all their categories and this was the right time to launch such an award,” said Nabil Al Hassan, Managing Director of Arabmotors.
