This year the world of caravans and the world of Mini racing have come together, as Bailey of Bristol is sponsoring top driver Jonathan Lewis in the Mighty Minis racing championship.

In part one of this video series, we saw Jonathan claim an impressive pole position in qualifying, and in part two we saw how he prepares for a race inside his caravan.

In the third and final instalment, Jonathan takes to the historic Silverstone race track to see if he can continue his four-race winning streak.

We follow the race right through to the finish line and get Jonathan's reaction as he unwinds from a long day's racing inside his Bailey Orion.
