FIX AUTO UK SUPPORTS CLASSIC RALLY CAR

Fix Auto UK, the UK’s leading vehicle repair network, is lending its support to a classic Mini Cooper that will compete in the 2016 Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship.

The Leicester-based operation has agreed to be a sponsor of the classic car built in 1963 and driven by Phil Harris, the principal at Harris & Co, one of the country’s leading chartered accountants and business advisors to both the automotive and motorsport sectors.

Phil, who first stepped into a rally car at the tender age of 13, has made a remarkable return to the sport in a car he has owned since 1976 with four class wins from four starts after a 25-year hiatus in order to concentrate on his business.

The success in 2015 has already ensured class glory in the Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship with three rounds yet to go and also places him third in the highly competitive category one division that encompasses all historic pre-1968 rally cars no matter the engine size.

Ian Pugh, of Fix Auto UK, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Harris & Co Mini in the UK’s premier historic rally championship for 2016. The car has been fantastically successful this year with four class wins out of four and, as a leader in the automotive repair business, it’s a great way for us to display our own philosophy of being a front runner too.”

Phil Harris, said: “We have a long association with the automotive sector and the chance to work alongside a leading brand such as Fix Auto UK is very exciting.”
