Mini Challenge Cooper champion Harrison seals Coastal Racing Gen3 F56 class switch
Reigning Mini Challenge Cooper champion Nathan Harrison will graduate into the series’ Gen 3 F56 class this year in a two-car entry from Coastal Racing.
Former British karting title winner Harrison lifted the championship’s Cooper Class crown with 11 race wins last season to register his maiden car racing title during his first full year on long circuits.
The 19-year-old from Oxford will now move up to race one of the 255bhp Gen 3 F56 cars alongside multiple Cooper champion Shane Stoney.
Harrison had chances to switch to racing in America, but chose to further his tin-top experience in the UK first.
“This year is a big season as there are a lot of things in the pipeline for 2017 if it goes well,”
