Renault UK Clio Cup organisers have announced that the 2013 champion will receive a BTCC test drive and a Clio Renaultsport 200 Turbo for one year.
With the arrival of the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) as promoter and the return of Simon North to the role of championship manager, new official tyre partner Dunlop will provide a fully-funded test day for the Clio Cup champion with leading BTCC squad Motorbase Performance at the wheel of one of the team’s NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) challengers.
Furthermore, Renault UK will loan the title winner one of its brand new, 1.6-litre turbo-charged Clio Renaultsport 200 road cars. The fourth generation of the hot hatch, which was revealed to the world at last September’s Paris Motor Show, will go on sale to UK buyers in mid-April.
“This really is a fantastic prize package. Added to the prestige of winning one of UK motorsport’s biggest and most coveted titles, our champion will also have the chance to showcase their skills in a current specification NGTC touring car. On behalf of everyone involved with the Renault UK Clio Cup, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Dunlop and Motorbase,” said championship manager Simon North.
