Hand: “I Know What Job I’ve Got To Do … Win The Title”

Ash Hand believes Team Pyro are the team that can take him to the Renault UK Clio Cup title this season in his third season in the category.

As reported by TheCheckeredFlag.co.uk earlier this month, Hand is returning to the team with whom his made his Clio Cup debut in 2013 for the upcoming campaign, following a season with SV Racing which produced five podium finishes last year.

Hand will be one of three Pyro drivers fighting at the front, with Brett Smith and Ashley Sutton, who will be running under the Team BMR banner with Pyro preparing his car, also targeting a championship push.

“Pyro keep having a knack of winning the title and it’s the title I want,” said Hand. “I think with Brett and Ash we also have the strongest driver line-up out there and we’re all going to push each other like crazy.

“I believe Pyro are the best when it comes to running cars in the Clio Cup so I know I’m getting the best treatment with them, plus Andy Priaulx will be working with me solely to help me go for the title. I know what job I’ve got to do and that is to win the title.”
