Former Masters Cup competitor Graham Field is looking to return to the Renault UK Clio Cup grid next season after acquiring a fourth-generation Clio racer.
Budget difficulties meant the Nottinghamshire-based racer had to sit on the sidelines this season, having competed in the Clio Cup in 2012 and 2013.
The 55 year old competed in the final four races in 2012 with 20Ten Racing before embarking on a full campaign last year with the Derbyshire-based outfit.
A regular top twenty finisher, Field took a best finish of fifteenth overall, while six Masters Cup podiums gave him third in the class at the end of the year.
Having now brought the fourth-gen racer that Finlay Crocker campaigned in the Renault Clio Eurocup this season, Field is working on securing the full race budget required to compete throughout 2015.
“I really enjoyed my time in Clios and I was really disappointed not to be able to race last season,” said Field.
“I did keep up with all of the action by attending most of the race weekends and those I couldn’t get to I watched on ITV4, but there’s no substitute for being on the grid, and that’s why I want to be back next year.
“I need to familiarise myself with the new car, which I’m told is quite different to the Clios I raced in 2012 and 2013, so I need to get the budget together for some solid winter testing.
“Then, the greater challenge is to find the finances we need to be on the grid next year – I’m determined to be back out there.”
