Racing Rookie Honour Joins Clio Series Ranks

1 Mins read

Renaultsport Trackday enthusiast Jake Honour is the driver to commit to making his car-racing debut in the new-for-2013 Michelin Clio Cup Series with Protyre.

Honour, who is a qualified mechanical engineer by trade, will convert his own road-going Clio Renaultsport 197 into a racer for the championship, utilising the official parts kit distributed for the series.

The 21 year old has been receiving some driver tuition from reigning Renault UK Clio Cup champion Jack Goff ahead of his first season of competitive motorsport.

“It’s only recently I’ve been interested in racing really, the last three or four years, but I didn’t think it would be possible financially to actually get out there and do it,” said Honour. “If I was going to try and race I wanted it to be in a one-make series, so this is absolutely perfect.

“I can’t wait for the series to start. The plan really is to just see how I go, it’s my first year in racing so I just want to take it one race at a time and if it goes well then I’ll start approaching a few places to see if we can secure some sponsors. It’s obviously early days but hopefully, with what I’ve learnt from Jack [Goff], we can have a good go at it!”
