The Lord Mayor of Brad­ford made a very spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion to one of the UK’s lead­ing clas­sic car rac­ers at City Park, in Au­gust. Andy ‘Ace’ Har­ri­son, who is based in Ship­ley, has been in­vited to race his his­toric Mini Cooper at the Good­wood Re­vival this Septem­ber.

Andy, who has been in­vited to race in this pres­ti­gious event as one of the top clas­sic car rac­ers in the county, will be tak­ing on an­other pro­fes­sional driver and for­mer F1 as­sis­tant team man­ager, Tony Jar­dine, over the two-day event.

The Lord Mayor, Coun Za­far Ali, ac­com­pa­nied by Brad Bear, met with Andy to wish him well and present him with a spe­cial Brad Bear teddy mas­cot who will race with the pair on the day. He said: “We’re proud that Andy, a Brad­ford lo­cal, has been in­vited along to this prom­i­nent event on the mo­tor­sports cal­en­dar. His Mini Cooper looks like a fan­tas­tic car and it’s a shame I won’t get to see it in ac­tion. How­ever, Brad Bear will be along­side Andy on the day and we hope that his new mas­cot will bring him plenty of luck over the week­end!”
