We Spoke to 3 Bradford City Stars About All Things Cars

JCT600 first sponsored Bradford City AFC back in 1997, and our current partnership with the club dates back to 2013. For the Bantams, football always comes first, but what do they have to say about the marvellous world of motoring?!

We caught up with three of the players during pre-season to ask them about all things cars…


Romain Vincelot

Romain Vincelot – Midfielder & Club Captain

JCT600: What was your first car? What was it like?

RV: It was a Fiat Punto – a red one. It was OK, a cheap first car!

JCT600: Tell me about the car you’re driving at the moment

RV: It’s a black Mercedes estate. It is a bit old, and the lads take the mickey out of it sometimes, but it does the job!

JCT600: What’s your dream car and why?

RV: I would say the Ferrari F40 . When I was a kid growing up it was like a dream car and I think it still looks a great design to this day.

JCT600: What’s your ideal road trip?

RV: I want to go with a friend of mine back in France one day on the route from La Rochelle to Vladivostok. It takes you all the way across Europe and into Asia. We would then possibly take a ferry into Japan afterwards.

JCT600: What do you listen to on your way to training?

RV: Some soft house music. Sometimes I put French radio on by connecting it to my car via my iPhone. This allows me to hear what is happening back there.

JCT600: Did you pass your test first time?

RV: Yes I did!

JCT600: Who’s got the best/worst car at the club?

RV: The lads will say my car is the worst, but it does the job for me! It has twice been to France and back, but I guess I would have to go with mine for the worst! The best? Maybe Jonesey (Alex Jones). He has a big 4 x 4.

JCT600: Who’s the best/worst driver at the club?

RV: I will pick myself for being the best driver. Who could I pick as the worst though? That is a tough one to pick. I could see maybe Rouven (Sattelmaier) being too angry as a driver!


Tony McMahon

Tony McMahon – Defender

JCT600: What was your first car? What was it like?

TMc: It was a little Peugeot 206 cc. It was probably a little too small but it was my first car and I absolutely loved it!

JCT600: Tell me about the car you’re driving at the moment

TMc: At the moment, I have a Porsche Panamera. I’ve always wanted one – I love the car. I’ve had it a couple of years now and I absolutely love it!

JCT600: What’s your dream car and why?

TMc: I’d like a Lamborghini Aventador. My son loves them as well and he keeps telling me to buy one, and I have to keep telling him they’re too expensive!

JCT600: What’s your ideal road trip?

TMc: I’d like to drive down the coast of America. That would be incredible.

JCT600: What do you listen to on your way to training?

TMc: Charlie (Wyke) and Killa (Matthew Kilgallon) talking all the time! You can’t hear anything else – it’s just us three having a laugh!

JCT600: Did you pass your test first time?

TMc: Actually it was the second time, although it wasn’t my fault I didn’t pass on the first one.

JCT600: Who’s got the best/worst car at the club?

TMc: I think the best car is mine. The worst car? Romain, easily!

JCT600: Who’s the best/worst driver at the club?

TMc: Killa (Matthew Kilgallon) is a good driver – he’s a safe driver when he drives us into training. Charlie (Wyke) is not the best driver though, so probably him!


jake reeves

Jake Reeves – Midfielder

JCT600: What was your first car? What was it like?

JR: I had a 51-plate black MINI One. It was actually quite a decent car!

JCT600: Tell me about the car you’re driving at the moment.

JR: I have a white Audi A1 convertible.

JCT600: What’s your dream car and why?

JR: Probably a Bugatti. It costs the most and looks the best!

JCT600: What’s your ideal road trip?

JR: I would probably say Route 66 in America. I’d also like to try one of the Autobahns in Germany.

JCT600: What do you listen to on your way to training?

JR: I listen to all sorts really. I just put the radio on when I’m in the car – something like Kiss or Capital.

JCT600: Did you pass your test first time?

JR: Yes!

JCT600: Who’s got the best/worst car at the club?

JR: Worst car? I’ve not really been at the club long enough to see one just yet. I like Jonesey’s (Alex Jones). He has an all-black Range Rover – that is a really nice car!

JCT600: Who’s the best/worst driver at the club?

JR: From what I’ve gathered so far, I’d probably say the worst driver is Paul Taylor! Best driver? I’d say the skipper, Romain!
