Renaultsport’s UK Motorsport Championship Manager Will Fewkes commented: “2016 will mark the 26th consecutive year that Renault UK has raced alongside the BTCC. It means every team, driver and sponsor on the UK Clio Cup grid will continue to be included in what is by far the best TV broadcast arrangement in British motor sport thanks to ITV Sport’s comprehensive live coverage and highlights of events.

“Similarly it means the UK Clio Cup is showcased in front of British motor sport’s biggest trackside crowds as the championship visits the best circuits around the UK.

“The buzz surrounding the UK Clio Cup has grown in 2015 to levels not experienced by the championship in close to a decade and we are all hugely excited by what is in store for 2016.”
