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,”

Har­ri­son will step up to top Mini class
