- Helping you drive happy's Justin Pritchard among finalists for 2013 Automotive Journalist of the Year award

Last week, Jaguar Land Rover Canada helped present the Automotive Journalist Association of Canada's (AJAC) 2013 Automotive Journalist of the Year award to Michel Crépault of L'annuel de l'automobile and Auto Passion magazine.

Lorraine Sommerfeld of the Globe and Mail finished second, while our very own Justin Pritchard came in third place.

The panel of judges, which consisted of Geneviève Bonin, Jacques Grenier, and Robert Bragg, noted that “the information [Justin] provided was easy to understand and the test drives were realistic providing insight into the driving experience.”

“This award was founded over 25 years ago by Jaguar and it is always a thrill to be able to honour Canada's top talents in automotive journalism,” said Barbara Barrett, Communications Manager at Jaguar Land Rover Canada. “Our Jaguar and Land Rover brands are premium and exclusive brands. As a result, it's so appropriate that we recognize the premium journalism published by this exclusive group of Canadian automotive journalists. Congratulations to all entrants and award winners!”
