Events round-up: time ticks towards essential drive and decide event

Leasing company executives and fleet decision-makers have only a few days left to apply for their place at Company Car In Action 2008.

The event, which takes place from June 17 to 19 at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire, offers an exclusive opportunity to drive hundreds of the latest fleet cars on private test tracks which are normally closed to the public.

All drivers need to do to start the process of securing their place is log on to the Company Car In Action website and register their details.

More than 2,000 industry executives have already pre-registered for the event.

Manufacturers who are bringing along a range of vehicles to choose from are BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Citroën, Ford, Honda, Hummer, Kia, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Saab, Subaru and Vauxhall.

Between them they represent the vast majority of brands used by fleet operators.

All the latest models will be available to put through their paces on test circuits specifically designed for the role.

These test routes, which range from a hill route to a high-speed bowl where professionals can take cars to well in excess of 100mph, are normally closed to the public.
