Harry Nunn will move to EXCELR8 Motorsport for the final two rounds of the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE season.

The youngster joined the JCW grid this season on the back of a hugely successful two-year spell in the Cooper class, where he secured championship honours in his rookie campaign.

Last year, he remained in contention for the crown right through to the season finale, when an unfortunate incident in the opening race at Silverstone ultimately ended his hopes of defending his title.

A tricky season since moving up into the JCWs has seen Nunn take a brace of top 20 finishes, with his best result to date coming at Knockhill where he fought his way to 17th place in the final race of the weekend.

Eager to improve on those results through the final six races of the year, Nunn now switches to the EXCELR8 Motorsport team that has won the JCW crown for the last two years.

Nunn will make his debut with the team at Silverstone next weekend in the penultimate meeting of the campaign before the series then heads to Brands Hatch in early October for the season finale.

“Having spent two seasons fighting for the Cooper championship against EXCELR8, I know what a top team it is, and it’s great for me to now be joining the line-up for the rest of the season,” he said.

“Moving into the JCWs, I knew this season was going to be a big challenge but I think it’s fair to say that I was hoping for more in terms of results by this stage and I feel the time is right for a change.

“EXCELR8 has a huge amount of knowledge and experience, and my goal is to benefit from that to try and push forwards towards the top ten, which is where I hoping to be over the course of the season.

“The most important thing is to enjoy the final six races of the season, and hopefully that will help me fight for some improved results to set me up for 2023.”

Team owner Justina Williams added that she was pleased to being Nunn onboard.

“There is absolutely no doubting the fact that Harry is a very quick driver, as we have been able to see first hand when he was fighting for the Cooper title against us in recent seasons,” she said.

“Although he hasn’t yet been able to replicate that kind of form in the JCWs, we know he has the talent to fight higher up the order, and hopefully over the course of the final two rounds, we can help him to unlock more of the potential we know he has.”
