Bailey announces renewal of its sponsorship of Mini racing team who will compete in classic Mini championships across the UK and Europe
Bailey has announced its renewal of its sponsorship of the Team Bailey Racing team for 2014.
The group of drivers will once again compete in classic Mini racing championships across the UK and Europe with the Bailey Unicorn Madrid in tow with the team as base during race meetings.
Covering over 6,000 miles, the Bailey caravan will be following the drivers over the next few months to 11 race meetings across the UK and three in Europe (Belgium, Holland and Southern Spain).
During a special appearance on the Bailey stand at The Camping and Caravan Show at the NEC, Birmingham, the driving team featured one of their Mini cars, signed autographs, and gave away Bailey balloons.
Managing Director of Bailey of Bristol, Nick Howard, said: "We are delighted to be supporting Team Bailey Racing again this year, and wish them the best of luck for their trips around the UK and Europe. We can't guarantee the results of their races, but we do know the caravan is a real winner."
With this year's team having its first ever female driver, Ella Blue, 18, as well as racing alongside Charlie Budd, 21, and Justin Cooper, 33, team leader, Jonathan Lewis, is looking forward to the year ahead.
The team leader of Team Bailey Racing was delighted with the support from Bailey of Bristol, saying: "This is a very exciting time for me and the team, and I wish to thank Bailey of Bristol for loaning us such a fantastic caravan which means we have a comfortable place to eat, sleep and relax in between races.
"Some circuits are quite remote, so having the caravan means we can stay on site, work on the cars all evening if required, and then enjoy a nice hot shower, a cool drink or a cup of tea. The caravan is a vital support for the team, and means we will be fighting for the race wins from the off," he added.
