2014 Renault UK Clio Cup: Season In Numbers


18 races. 6 race-winners. 10 podium visitors. 13 top six finishers. 7 pole position starters. 1 champion.

After an intriguing first season running the fourth-generation Clio racer, The Checkered Flag have crunched the numbers to bring you all the key statistics on the 2014 Courier Connections Renault UK Clio Cup.

While series runner-up Josh Cook got the most top results through the year with more race wins, podium finishes and laps led than anyone else, it was consistent strong pace that proved key for champion Mike Bushell.

The Team Pyro ace led the way with fastest laps and pole positions, six of the latter helping him earn the moniker of qualifying king with the best average on the grid.

Third place finisher Jordan Stilp ended the year as the only driver to earn every point available from a single weekend after his dominance at Croft, while despite joining the series four meetings in, Charlie Ladell gained more places from his grid start in the races than any other driver.

A full breakdown of all the key statistics is below:
