Deegan Forms Own SDR Motorsport Team For 2017 Clio Cup

Reigning Dunlop Mini Miglia Challenge champion Shayne Deegan will compete full-time in the Renault UK Clio Cup this season.

Deegan competed in four rounds of the championship last year with Team Cooksport, with his best weekend coming at Rockingham when he secured a pair of top ten finishes.

That came alongside a truly dominant Mini Miglia campaign, with the 22 year old winning fourteen of the sixteen races he contested.

Deegan returns to the Clios this season with his own team, SDR Motorsport, with backing from Regency Autos and SBM Engineering.

“It’s going to be a big challenge – taking on much bigger teams than ours,” he said.

“They are all three or four cars so to go it alone is quite a task but we’re totally up for it. If we start getting in among the action at the front then it’ll be even sweeter.

“And I’ll still be getting assistance from Josh Cook (BTCC star) in the Friday test sessions and I’m bringing my engineer from Cooksport, Rob Drake.

“I really enjoyed the three events I did last year – it was a big wake-up call as I’d been used to having it my own way in Minis! But I love the type of racing involved – it’s incredibly close.”
