After successfully launching in 2017, Renault UK Clio Cup Junior – for drivers aged 14 to 17 – will return with a six-event/12 round calendar in 2018.
Silverstone, Rockingham, Donington Park, Snetterton, Croft and Brands Hatch are all on the calendar. Click on '2018 Race Calendar' above for dates which have been carefully selected so as to avoid clashes with school studies and exams.
A full championship registration will cost £5995 + VAT and can be lodged with Renault Sport's UK Motorsport Championship Manager Will Fewkes firstname.lastname@example.org
The big appeal for the young drivers is an opportunity to compete in equally-matched junior racing versions of the cars used in the senior UK Clio Cup that appears alongside the British Touring Car Championship.
In terms of performance, the only differences are a 100mph speed limit and five gears instead of six (achieved through an ECU modification) plus a switch to high performance Michelin road tyres instead of racing ‘slicks’.
The cars are also the most technically advanced and reliable in the junior racing market place. The safest, too… they comply with new safety standards in junior-level competition as demanded for 2018 by UK motor sport’s governing body the Motor Sports Association.
The cost of a new Clio Cup Junior race car in 2018 is €46,300 +VAT.
