The AutObarn Group held their 2017 annual conference this last month and according to the members one of the best conferences ever held for the members. “We wanted to add some punch to this year’s conference,” said MD Terry Brand. So, we got motoring and motorsport communication journalist and all round automotive guru Roger Mc Cleery to MC and talk to the members, Roger in his normal manner turned the conference on its head relaxing all the members and getting them all involved throughout the afternoon,” said Brand
