22/08/2018 – The Mini Cooper Register has four new Honorary Members, Andy “Ace” Harrison, Bill Richards, Ray Cunningham and Nick Swift.
Those of you who were at Beaulieu Mini Day will remember Andy Harrison being interviewed and handed the well-known orange racing helmet of Barrie (Whizzo) Williams. Andy is the owner of Acespeed Historic Motorsport based in Shipley and races in Historic events. If you are attending the Goodwood Revival this year you will be able to cheer him on! www.acespeed.co.uk
Bill Richards has been building engines and racing for many years, competing in both track and historic rallying. He was involved with Rover’s 90’s Mini Rally Team, providing the engines and the service for the 1994 Monte Carlo entrances and for the 24 hour endurance events of the period. He is a regular on the Historic Monte driving a Mk1 S for Mini Spares.
Ray Cunningham has over 30 years experience and is no stranger to rallying. His very first event was auto testing in a Mini back in the mid 80’s! A massive Mini fan himself, Ray has gone on to say that his second ever road car was a 1966 Mk1 Mini and he’s “never looked back”! With National titles in Auto Cross, and wins in Minis at Killarney Historic and the RAC Historic under his belt Ray has consistantly proven himself to be one of the top drivers in these events.
If you are a fan of Minis in motorsport, you can’t fail to have heard of Nick Swift. Swiftune have established themselves as the leading A Series race engine builder and their success can be seen on the racetrack. Nick’s entertaining, enthusiastic and successful races are very popular with the crowds. Swiftune’s race winning engines have been proven at many historic race meetings www.swiftune.com
