A COUNTY motor racing star says he is ready to make the step up after winning the Mighty Minis Championship.

Greg Jenkins will be competing in the Super Minis class next year, which will provide him with more speed and a larger engine.

"I've got a car lined up and it will be modified so it give me 30 per cent more speed," said Jenkins.

"But I've got to learn to drive a new car, which will be a challenge."

Jenkins, who will start his Super Minis quest next Easter, said he never targeted winning the Mighty Minis Championship this year.

"I've been doing it since 2011 but I never really had any aspirations to win it," he said.

"But after winning a couple of rounds, I thought I had a half a chance of winning it."

Jenkins sealed the title in the final round at Castle Combe in Wiltshire.

Despite having to settle for fourth spot on the grid, Jenkins got it together to win the opening race.

That pretty much guaranteed him the title and he could relax in the next race.

Jenkins started in eighth place due to the reverse grid rule and was in fourth spot when the race was halted due to a collision.
