The shortlist for the finalists of the Forecourt Trader of the Year Awards 2022 will be revealed on Friday.

Our team of expert judges scoured through the hundreds of paper entries that were received for these prestigious Awards to get to the shortlist. Standards are always high, and this year was no different, making the judges’ choices more difficult than ever. However, they agreed upon a shortlist with those sites then being visited by our mystery judges.

There are two sets of Awards – the regional categories and the specialist categories.

Regardless of ownership or operational status, the main retailer categories are grouped by two criteria – region and fuel volume.

Retailers compete for the high-status title of being the Best Forecourt Retailer in one of six regions: Scotland, Northern Ireland, Northern England, Midlands, West Country and Wales, London and the South East.

There are two volume categories – up to 4mpla and over 4mpla.

There will be two winners in each region representing the two volume categories.

There is also a category for Best Motorway Services.

The overall Forecourt Trader of the Year winner will be chosen from the regional and Best Motorway Services categories.
