As he extends his blossoming partnership with BMW into a fifth year, Harper heads into the new campaign with confidence high following a superb 2023, in which he cemented his status as one of the leading talents in GT racing with a number of eye-catching performances across Europe.

The Northern Irishman will once again tackle three race programmes this year, led by a third consecutive campaign in the ultra-competitive GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup with reigning vice-champions ROWE Racing.

After a strong debut campaign in the championship in 2022, Harper enjoyed a podium breakthrough last season at Monza alongside fellow BMW Junior Team graduates Max Hesse and Neil Verhagen. There is one change to their driver line-up for 2024 though, with long-time BMW star Augusto Farfus taking Verhagen’s place.
