Morgan Excited For Eurocup Debut After Tough Donington

1 Mins read

Courier Connections Renault UK Clio Cup championship leader Alex Morgan is preparing for his debut outing in the Eurocup Clio Championship this weekend after a mixed second meeting of the UK season at Donington Park.

Morgan found himself on the backfoot from the off at the Leicestershire circuit, when mysterious power issues developed in his SV Racing Clio during pre-event testing.

They went on to hamper the KX Akademy member in qualifying, leading to seventh and sixth place grid starts for the two Easter Sunday races and a focus on damage limitation in the races.

After carding sixth in the opening race in torrential rain, the Brands Hatch double-winner secured a hard-fought third place in race two to end the weekend with a four point championship lead.

“Overall I’m happy, taking a sixth and a third,” Morgan told TCF. “Getting the two finishes was the most important thing, and I’m really pleased to have got a podium finish after what was quite a bleak qualifying session, and especially after Thursday, I’d have never imagined being this high up.”

The 27 year old’s attentions now turn to his maiden outing in the Eurocup Clio Championship at Motorland Aragon in Spain, where he will renew acquaintances with his team-mate from 2013, reigning UK and Eurocup Clio Cup champion Josh Files.

“I’m looking forward to racing with Josh [Files] again, and getting out onto some European circuits again, which is where I raced during my last single-seater season in 2008,” he added.

“I think there’s going to be some great races out there, there’s a few more drivers than the UK series so we’ll be up against some tough competition, and that will mean if we get some good results it will be really satisfying I’m sure.”
