Bowker MINI has announced its sponsorship of young Lancashire racing driver Ashley Gregory.

19 year-old Ashley, from Rossendale, has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the ranks in British motorsport since beginning her racing career at the age of just 10.

The three-time Junior Ministox Champion will be one of only two female competitors in this year’s Vertu MINI Challenge Series. The partnership with the Blackburn and Preston-based car centres means Bowker MINI will appear on Ashley’s race suit and car and the display banner outside the awning at events. 

Ashley said: “Racing is my life; it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. Bowker’s support is a wonderful validation of my efforts and achievements so far. The Vertu MINI Challenge is a real step up for me. But with the right people behind the team, it’s exciting to dream about what we can achieve together.”

Ashley has loved speed since she was 7 when she raced for fun on a quad bike on homemade tracks. By 2015, she was competing in Junior Ministox, driving against opponents up to 16 years old.

A crash in only her third race failed to halt her progress as she won the overall Junior Ministox Championship three times over the next four years. Despite being only 19, Ashley has already claimed over 120 trophies and secured multiple significant race victories.

In 2019, Ashley debuted in the Junior Saloon Car Championship (JSCC) Scholarship, where she was a finalist. Following this, she and her family decided to compete independently. By 2020, Ashley had already achieved two podium finishes in the JSCC, and by the following year, she added a race win and several fastest lap times to her achievements.

This season, Ashley is competing in the prestigious Vertu MINI Challenge Series for the second year. Her entry into the series in the first year marked a significant step up in competition. Ashley finished P12 in class and enjoyed two rookie wins. A successful season she now hopes to build on.

Jonathan Rogan for Bowker MINI said: “We are thrilled to support a young talent like Ashley. It’s important that Lancashire encourages young people with such a passion for motorsport in the county. Ashley has already enjoyed enviable success. We look forward to seeing more podiums and trophies this season. We are proud to be part of Ashley’s journey.”

With the backing of Bowker MINI, Ashley is set to further her racing career with robust support and resources, underscoring the motor group’s commitment to nurturing local talent and promoting excellence in motorsport.

Bowker MINI have won a national marketing award for the second time in just three years.

The Bowker MINI centres in Blackburn and Preston beat off competition from more than 130 other UK centres to win the Marketing category at the MINI UK Retailer Awards.

Judges commented on Bowker MINI’s year, saying that: “exciting and comprehensive marketing activities covering events, content creation and local relevance meant Bowker edged ahead of the competition to win the award.”

Winners on the night were selected across a range of categories, including sales, marketing, financial services, and used cars, at the awards ceremony awards in Manchester hosted by writer and comedian Katherine Ryan.

Bowker MINI group marketing manager Amy Lancaster-Hall said: “It’s a proud achievement to win the national marketing award – but to win it twice is special for the whole team. The last time we won, we were in lockdown, and the celebration was a virtual one. It goes without saying that it was much more fun to celebrate in person.

“We have a small team compared with some larger dealer groups. But what we may lack in numbers, we make up for in hard work and creativity. This award is a credit to each and every one of them.”

The four-strong marketing team at Bowker MINI includes Amy, marketing executives Jess O’Neill and Charlotte Brown, and graphic designer Chloe Robinson. 

Bowker MINI has been shortlisted for marketing excellence in seven out of the last eight years. In 2015, Bowker Motor Group marketing manager Amy Lancaster-Hall won the MINI Marketer of the Year category.

This year, the marketing team at Bowker MINI focused on the MINI electric, selling out by year-end. Bowker combined events, radio, email and social media channels featuring the MINI product genius videos.

Activity included product placement in partnership with the Royal Lancashire Show and Blackburn Rugby Club. Bowker MINI also delivered campaigns like the ‘Design Your Day’ social media competition, which generated over 50 test drives. 

Bowker MINI was also shortlisted for the Big Love award. New for 2024, the ‘MINI Big Love’ award acknowledges those delivering significant and impactful initiatives, which could include charitable fundraising, volunteering, or efforts to reduce environmental impact.

Special offer £23.40

There are a number of very good reasons reasons to choose MINI Service. One of them: the fact that Genuine MINI Parts are used at all times. Because nothing is more important than having “The Original”. Even when it comes to engine oil.

MINI engines unleash a driving dynamic like no other manufacturer. Innovative high-performance engines require premium oils that keep up with rapid development. In cooperation with Shell, Original MINI Engine Oils were developed based on the unique Shell PurePlus Technology.

Engine oil quality depends largely on its main components: the base oils. They make up approximately 75-90% of an engine oil. Original MINI Engine Oils are based on the new patented Shell PurePlus Technology, which makes base oils from natural gas instead of crude oil. The result: crystal clear base oils that contain virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. Shell PurePlus Technology marks a breakthrough in how engine oils are formulated to provide enhanced viscosity, reduced friction and lower volatility.

So, what are the benefits?

SAFETY – Customers can count on MINI Service Centres to only use high-quality original products, including Genuine Parts and Original MINI Engine Oil. This guarantees the customer’s mobility.

SUSTAINABILITY – Original MINI Engine Oils reduce oil and fuel consumption – ensuring sustainable driving pleasure!

VALUE PRESERVATION – Using Original MINI Engine Oil keeps the engine clean and efficient. Along with MINI Service expertise, it helps maintain the vehicle’s value.

Bowker Preston MINI’s manager is calling time on his 30-year career working in the automotive retail sector.

Peter Turner, Bowker MINI Preston brand manager and a familiar face in Lancashire’s automotive retail community, is retiring in January. 

Wiganner Peter first joined the Bowker Motor Group in 2002. Over the years, he left a lasting impact on the organisation, serving in various key roles. From 2002 to 2008, he contributed significantly to Bowker BMW in Preston and MINI in Blackburn as a Brand Manager. 

In 2014, he took on successful sales management roles with motorcycle retailers Bowker Harley-Davidson and Bowker Motorrad, both located in Preston. In 2019, he returned to Bowker MINI in Preston as brand manager – a role which proved to be his last with the business.

Away from the cut and thrust of the automotive retail world, Peter now hopes to spend more time with wife, Vicky and two sons, Adam and Liam. Peter will also be travelling and spending more time watching and playing rugby league.

Reflecting on his career, Peter said: “I’ve had a great time with the Bowker Motor Group. But it’s time for a new chapter. I’ll take only great memories of colleagues and customers. We have enjoyed events and drive-outs together. I have been especially proud of the unique customer experience we have created. I know I’ll miss the team, but I am grateful for their support and excited for the future.”

For Bowker Motor Group, chief executive Paul Bowker said: “We’re lucky to work alongside some of the automotive trade’s good guys and girls here at Bowker. And Peter is no exception. His leadership and passion for delivering an exceptional retail experience earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues and customers alike. He deserves his retirement, and he goes with all our best wishes.”

GET SET FOR WINTER.

Breakdowns are more common and can be more dangerous over the winter months, so be prepared for heavy rain, cold spells and challenging road conditions.

Now is the perfect time to book in your MINI for a Winter Health Check to make sure it’s ready for everything the colder months have in store.

The MINI Winter Health Check is just £29.99* and our experts will ensure all systems are in good working order. Plus, they’ll top up important fluids including screen wash, engine oil, AdBlue^ and antifreeze.

All aspects of your car including wheels and tyres, suspension and steering, under bonnet, exhaust and brake pads will be checked over. Our Technicians will prepare a health report and, using the latest technology, share a personalised talk-through video whilst your vehicle is on a ramp in the Workshop.

We’ll check:

  • All lights
  • Heat blower
  • Horn
  • Battery
  • Fluid levels, including coolant, screenwash, steering and engine oil
  • Steering mobility
  • Brake pads and discs
  • Wiper blades
  • Tyre pressure and treads
  • Drivebelt
  • Exhaust

FRONT WINDSCREEN TREATMENT.

For an additional £24.99, your MINI can also receive a front windscreen treatment which creates a ‘hydrophobic’ effect on glass. This dramatically improves visibility in the rain and when travelling at speeds of 40mph and above, the need for wipers to operate will be significantly reduced due to the way the water beads off the treated glass.
