Stilp Back For Clio Cup 2015: “I’m Going Out To Win It”

Jordan Stilp has set his sights firmly on winning the 2015 Renault UK Clio Cup title after confirming his return to the series with 20Ten Racing.

Stilp won three times in his second season of Clio racing last year, including a clean sweep of race wins, pole positions and fastest laps at Croft in June.

A further success at Knockhill as part of a superb run of six podium finishes in eight races put him in title contention heading in the final meeting of the season, the 20 year old eventually finishing third in the standings.

With championship top two Mike Bushell and Josh Cook stepping up to the BTCC for this season, reigning Graduate Cup champion Stilp will be the highest placed returnee on the 2015 grid and he comes back with the overall title his only focus.

“I’m going out to win it and nothing else – no thirds or seconds, just wins. And I feel like I’m going to be the champion,” said Stilp.

“All we need to do as a team is make sure we get in plenty of pre-season testing to be as far ahead of the game as possible. When we roll up for the first two races at Brands Hatch I want to hit the ground running and thrash everyone.”

20Ten team principal Simon Hunt added: “Jordan wants to win and the way he won at Croft last year was extraordinary. That really was a turning point and he was so strong after that. It lifted everyone’s confidence and determination.

“If his first half of the season had been like his second half he would have been champion and I believe this year will be his year.”
