Reigning ELF Renault Clio Winter Cup Champion Daniel Lloyd has been announced as the latest member of the highly experienced Tim Sugden Management family.

Lloyd debuted in the 2008 Ginetta Junior Championship becoming a multiple race winner and regular front-runner from the word go, in the last year he moved up to the ELF Renault Cup, culminating in the Winter Cup title win in November.

Lloyd is looking to work his way up to sportscar racing and was happy to be given the opportunity to team up with Tim Sugden Management.

“This really is fantastic news”, said Daniel, “Winning the Winter Cup in Clios was great but we're realistic enough to know sportscar racing has to be our aim if I want to become a fully professional driver. Tim has a huge amount of experience, both as a driver and a manager, so we're confident this deal will add nothing but positivity to my racing career.”

Other drivers that have been helped along by Tim Sugden include World Series by Renault race winner, and Formula One aspirant, James Walker, Aston Martin sportscar driver Jonny Cocker – the youngest ever British GT Champion – and Darryl O'Young who has just secured a deal to race in the 2010 FIA World Touring Car Championship.

Sugden commented: “I'm delighted to welcome Daniel into my management group, he's shown a lot of promise already in just two years of car racing. My aim is to add some fresh impetus into his career and to try and put him on the path to becoming a professional driver.

“I've been competing in motorsport for 30 years and have been managing drivers for the past 10 years so that experience should give Daniel's career some added momentum. I see him as someone very much like Jonny Cocker who I helped to become a professional driver. His career has gone from strength to strength and the aim is to do the same for Daniel.”
