Mini Chal­lenge run­ner-up Nathan Har­ri­son will move into the Re­nault UK Clio Cup this sea­son af­ter a planned switch to the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship didn’t ma­te­ri­alise.

The 20-year-old took three wins in the Mini se­ries last sea­son, af­ter claim­ing the Cooper class ti­tle the year be­fore. He will now com­pete in the Clio Cup with the ti­tle-win­ning Jam­sport squad af­ter talks to join Power Maxed Rac­ing in the BTCC fell through.

“This year we were sup­posed to be go­ing to Bri­tish Tour­ing Cars, we had tried to raise a bud­get to com­pete with Power Maxed in the new Vaux­hall,” ex­plained Har­ri­son. “But our big­gest spon­sor pulled the plug at the last sec­ond. That put us on the back foot.

“We thought we’d do Clios as it’s a great step­ping stone to the BTCC and it gets my name known around the pad­dock.

“Jam­sport won the cham­pi­onship last year so they ap­pealed to us and they’re only half an hour down the road from us.”
