Ben Jenkins will move over to LDR Performance Tuning for the remainder of the Vertu Motors MINI CHALLENGE Trophy season, starting this weekend at Snetterton.

Having raced as part of the Graves Motorsport line-up last year, Jenkins kicked off his 2023 programme with the defending champions at Brands Hatch last month – where he scored a best result of 17th.

“I’m delighted to announce we have joined LDR Performance Tuning for the rest of the 2023 season,” Jenkins said.

“The team has had plenty of success in the past, so let’s hope for a successful run through the remainder of the year.”

Jenkins will be part of a revised line-up for LDR this weekend, with Jamie Keates set to make his series debut having been forced to sit out the Brands Hatch opener.

The pair will line up alongside team regulars Brendan and Mick Fitzgerald, although Jacob Heap will not be present having made his debut on the opening weekend of the campaign.
