At just seventeen years of age, Harper excelled in his first season of senior competition this year as he gelled instantly with his 485hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car and the JTR team, who are led by Le Mans 24 Hours winner Nick Tandy.

“I’m delighted to be staying with JTR for a second season in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB,” said Harper.

“We had some good offers from other teams in the paddock, but after a brilliant year together in 2018, it was an easy decision to stay with JTR. I’m proud of the brilliant results we enjoyed and I feel we’ve got a strong platform to build upon for next season.”
