New Clio Cup Car Set For 2014 UK Race Debut

1 Mins read

Renault UK has confirmed the new fourth-generation Clio Cup car will begin racing in the UK in 2014.

It will replace the current Clio Cup car, which was introduced into the Renault Clio Cup UK in 2007.

The new car, powered by an Oreca-tuned 1.6 litre turbo powerplant, will debut in Europe next year, with initial testing showing it to run roughly one-second per lap faster than the existing normally-aspirated 2.0-litre car.

“We’ve enjoyed 22 fantastic years of Renault UK Clio Cup racing and the brand new Clio Cup race car is an incredibly exciting new chapter in the story for everyone”, said Renault UK Communications Director Jeremy Townsend.

“We will continue to run the existing car in the British championship through 2013, with the intention to then introduce the new turbo-charged Clio Cup car the following season. Getting the timing right is very important, the car will race in the Clio Eurocup next year so our teams in the UK will have ample opportunity to see it in action ahead of its planned 2014 UK debut.”
