Randon Happy To Finish “Rough Journey” With Top Three Finish


After a season full of “ups and downs”, Sam Randon says he is delighted to have ended the campaign in third overall in the 2016 Michelin Clio Cup Series standings.

The Westbourne Motorsport ace had headed into the season finale at Silverstone six points adrift of Luke Pinder in the battle for the final position in the championship three.

The racing began in dramatic fashion for the two in the opening encounter, with contact whilst battling over third resulting in Pinder hitting the pit wall and both drivers eventually retiring.

That meant the battle would go down to the final race of the season, with Randon going on to take the spot in style with a hard-fought seventh podium finish of the campaign.

“Getting a podium was a nice way to finish the year. It has been a bit of a rough journey with some ups and downs so I’m happy to finish it in third overall,” said Randon.

“Taking my first win at Pembrey was really special and then to back that up with another win at Brands Hatch was great.

“We will assess what we will do next year but it has been a fantastic time in my career driving these mega little cars.”
