Buxton Hails Clio Cup Teams Champions SV Racing

1 Mins read

SV Racing team boss Danny Buxton has praised the efforts of his drivers and team personnel after the outfit comprehensively secured the 2014 Renault UK Clio Cup Teams Championship title.

The Cheshire-based outfit had a dominant start to their first season since re-branding from Scuderia Vittoria, taking the first four wins in a row and a stunning one-two-three-four finish in Round Four at Donington Park.

The team have taken podium finishes in every single race bar one since then, with its KX Akademy-backed drivers Josh Cook, Alex Morgan, Ant Whorton-Eales and Ash Hand accumulating a total of twenty-six podium finishes including eight wins this year.

Those results secured them the Teams title with a weekend to spare at Rockingham five weeks ago, and they capped off their success in style with a one-two-three finish in the penultimate race of the year at Brands Hatch

“SV Racing, Teams Champions with a round to go, it’s awesome,” 2001 Clio Champion Buxton told TCF.

“I’ve been so fortunate to work with four quality drivers, a brilliant crew back at the workshop and the team here at race weekends. They’re the ones who deserve the big pat on the back. What a year.”

While there was joy with the team’s achievements, that was mixed with some disappointment after SV missed out on the driver’s title with Cook.

Cook led the standings for a long time during the season, and while he eventually lost out to Mike Bushell, Buxton feels he should be ending the year with his head held high.

“While it’s a disappointing end for Josh, he can’t be disappointed,” Buxton added.

“Josh has been a class act this year, he’s won more races than anybody else and he deserved the title.”
