Lidsey And Bennett Confirm Clio Series Returns

1 Mins read

Brett Lidsey and Pete Bennett have become the latest drivers to confirm their entries into the racecar class of the 2014 Michelin Clio Cup Series.

22 year old Lidsey will once again run as a privateer, and is aiming to build on the two podium finishes he achieved in the series last season. The former motorcross competitor improved through the campaign, taking his maiden podium finish during the final race of the main season, before adding another in the end-of-year Autumn Cup.

Finesse Motorsport’s Bennett meanwhile has high hopes for the year ahead after a superb one-off Clio Series debut at Brands Hatch last September. On his car-racing debut, the 47 year old took second place and posted the fastest lap in his first ever race.

“Seeing Brett and Pete return to the Michelin Clio Cup Race Series really is fantastic news, they both played a big part in the success of our first season last year,” commented championship promoter Simon North, “Brett improved well throughout the year and thoroughly deserved his first podium at Brands Hatch, especially being his home track. He should have a great season in 2014.

“I don’t think any of us expected Pete to make such an incredible impact on his debut with us last year, it really was an outstanding weekend for him and he’s clearly a naturally talented driver. He’ll obviously have much less experience than many of his rivals, but we’re sure he’ll be a front-runner.”
