Top Track 100

From a single motor dealership in Bristol Street, Birmingham, in 1913, this company has grown into a network of 28 franchised dealers with combined sales of £586m in 2003, £131m less than in 2002. Bristol Street also operates two used-car hypermarkets under the Motor Nation brand. A number of businesses were sold during 2003 to fund a share buyback that resulted in the directors taking ownership from Legal & General Ventures.
