A brand new MINI Countryman was delivered to Mount Grace School from Stephen James MINI retailer in Enfield.

The roof design on the MINI was created by Year 10 pupil Alex Taylor who won the MINI Rooftop Competition organised by Stephen James earlier this year.

The design has now been ‘shrink-wrapped’ on to the MINI Countryman.

The car was on display at school throughout the week as part of the ADT Department’s Art Week, and Alex’s parents are able to drive the MINI this weekend.
