Boxing Day Special

This Boxing Day edition marks 88 consecutive weeks of The Apex. When we started back in the heady days of April 2020 during the first lockdown, we didn't know where we'd be 20 months down the line - but it turns out we're in a pretty good place! As the team relaxes with a well-earned break, this week's edition looks back over our 2021 highlights. It's been a challenge to hunt down some of our interviewees, but we're sure you'll agree that it was worth it as we look forward to a fresh and revamped Apex in 2022. Watch this space!

2022 is also a year full of promise for the Custodian app, with over 1,000 cars already added to the platform by users keen to digitise their ownership experience. The tech team are working hard on some very impressive integrated features due to come in 2022 - so if you're at a loose end on Boxing Day or beyond, why not check out the platform and upload your own car? You'll wonder why you ever tolerated all those crumpled invoices, faded receipts and dog-eared history files... You can register for the app at

In the meantime, the whole team here wish you all the best of health and good fortune for the coming year. See you on the road!
