Entry-Level ‘Clio Cup’ Racing Series Launched in the UK
Any Renault Clio RS 197 or RS 200 can be converted to enter the series, and the conversion kit only costs £3,000, and it contains a race-spec roll cage, racing harness, fire system with extinguisher as well as modified suspension components, courtesy of the Clio rally car.
According to Jeremy Townsend, Renault UK Communications Director, “Michelin Clio Cup Series with Protyre perfectly fills the gap in the market for those who enjoy track days, such as our own very successful Renaultsport Trackdays, but who want to make the step into actual competition without moving straight into the Renault UK Clio Cup”
He added: “In just a single week since the BARC was confirmed as the new promoter of the Renault UK Clio Cup, we already have this plan in place to extend the life of the third generation Clio when the new 1.6-litre turbocharged car arrives in Renault UK Clio Cup in 2014. The creation of the Michelin Clio Cup Series is a fantastic development for the Renaultsport brand.”
