4 Mins read

When Josh Cook led the field through the chequered flag in Round 16 of the 2013 Renault UK Clio Cup at Brands Hatch, the latest chapter of the championship’s story was brought to a close.

The rain-hit race was the 136th and last UK Clio Cup encounter for the third-generation Clio racer, which is being replaced by the new, turbocharged fourth-generation model next year.

Since its introduction in 2007, the car has been renowned for producing entertaining, action-packed racing that has been a fan favourite on the BTCC package throughout.

Here, The Checkered Flag looks back at the third-generation Clio’s spell in the Clio Cup.
