Here’s the mean machine Andy Bailey plans to race in Australia as a member of the British Classic Superbike Team.

Chesterfield-based Andy, pictured astride the bike, will race at Phillips Island in January and he plans to ship out his 1983 Harris Magnum Kawasaki this weekend.

The event, which attracts top riders from across the planet, will see motorcycle mechanic Andy take part in two main races and six support races.

A regular participant with the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club, Andy is sponsored by architects Steve and Tim from Mitchell and Proctor, Amber Racing of Sheepbridge and Matrix Engineering of Sheepbridge.
