Clio Cup Testing Restrictions Lifted By Series Organisers

1 Mins read

The Renault Clio Cup UK series today received a boost as series organisers Renault Sport UK revealed as relaxation on testing restrictions.

With the unusual six week break competitors will now be given the opportunity to get out on track and refresh their driving skills.

The move will also be a sigh of relief to potential newcomers who will now be able to test the current cars.

Teams will now be able to test between now and the end of July at two agreed venues, Oulton Park and Rockingham Motor Speedway as the series has already visited these two venues.

Championship Promoter Simon North commented: “We've never had such a long break in the calendar like this before and after speaking to the teams it was felt that by temporarily relaxing the testing regulations it would allow drivers to refresh their skills but also tempt new drivers to the series. We're also hoping the decision to offer the upgraded bodykit and more powerful engine at last year's prices will help make the series even more accessible to newcomers.”

JHR Developments Team Manager Steven Hunter was positive about the announcement: “We think it's a positive move which will enable teams to test potential new drivers. We're planning on testing on two of the dates permitted which will also include debut tests for some new drivers.”
