Today is the day everyone who entered the Motor Transport Awards has been waiting for: the announcement of who has made it onto the all important shortlist and who is in with a chance of walking away with the biggest prize in road transport. 

Over 60 independent judges were cloistered for two gruelling days to whittle the entries down to the select few announced in a video sponsored by Goodyear and published on our dedicated MT Awards website.

Today's issue of Motor Transport published today [28 April] also contains the shortlist in full on page 28.

The winners if the 20 iconic trophies will be announced on 2 July at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London's Park Lane.

It is expected to be another sell out audience so book now to avoid disappointment.
