German motoring club ADAC reveals ‘car of the year’ fraud

Germany’s biggest motoring organisation was embroiled in a worsening and deeply embarrassing scandal today following revelations that its officials had for years massively falsified voting results in the country’s prestigious annual “car of the year” award competition.

Michael Ramstetter, the ADAC’s communications chief executive... had for years falsified voting results in the club’s annual so called “Golden Angel” competition – a highly regarded membership ballot which chooses Germany’s favourite car of the year.

Although the ADAC did not admit it, there were suspicions that its executives may have taken sizeable backhanders from Germany’s powerful car manufacturers in exchange for manipulating the figures.
