Sam Randon is determined to turn his promising pace into a breakthrough result in the Renault UK Clio Cup this weekend as he returns to the grid for a second outing of the season at Snetterton.

Randon produced a sensational performance in qualifying during his debut weekend at Croft last month, putting himself fourth and second on the grid.

It wouldn’t go his way in the races however, suffering from a gearbox problem in the opener, before a first lap incident in race two led to extensive damage.

Some hard work in recent weeks has seen Randon generate the budget required to join the grid this weekend with Westbourne Motorsport.

We knew it was going to have to be a limited program this year, but the damage sustained at Croft has made it very difficult, so I’m really grateful to those people who have helped us get the car repaired and get us back on track,” said Randon.

I’m planning to do a few more laps this time. Croft was bitter sweet as I qualified so well, but then pushed too hard too soon in the race and spun out on cold tyres damaging the car in the process. The response from the paddock has been very supportive so I’m pleased to have made such an impact“.
