Statement from Renault UK Clio Cup

The opening round of 2015’s Renault UK Clio Cup – scheduled to take place at Brands Hatch this afternoon – has been postponed until later in the season.

The race did get under way but was halted by officials before the opening lap had been completed following an incident involving three competitors – JamSport team-mates Dan Holland and Tom Grundy and 20TenRacing’s Mark Howard.

Grundy required medical attention at the scene before being extricated from his car.

Renault UK Clio Cup Championship Manager Will Fewkes commented: “Driver safety and well-being is absolutely paramount and it was very important that Tom was removed from his car in the correct manner after a very unfortunate accident. The medical crew has done an extremely professional job.

“As a precaution Tom has been taken to a nearby hospital for a check-up and we of course wish him well.

“The time required to extricate him has meant we’ve been left with no time to re-start the race over any meaningful distance so we will look to re-schedule it at the earliest opportunity at one of our next events on the calendar.”

Tomorrow’s (Easter Sunday) second round of the Renault UK Clio Cup will go ahead as scheduled at Brands Hatch at 3.40pm.
