UK Clio Cup race car now available to drive at Palmersport

Followers of the Renault UK Clio Cup race championship will now be able to drive the car after a fleet of them were added to Palmersport’s range of high performance machinery.

Starting in March, the Clio Cup will be available to choose for those booking driving experiences on Palmersport’s popular Bedford Autodrome venue.

It is also the only front-wheel-drive car available and will bring enthusiasts closer than ever to being able to sample something akin to a touring car.

Indeed with its four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 220hp, slick racing tyres and six-speed paddleshift gearbox, the UK Clio Cup is acknowledged as the number one category for drivers looking to make a career in touring car competition.

Those taking up the Clio Cup experience will be accompanied by an instructor as they pound around Bedford’s fabled North Circuit. CLICK HERE for more info.

Bedford’s North Circuit already has links to the UK Clio Cup race car – the same configuration has been used for development of the new UK Clio Cup Junior race car.

And last year Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Jolyon Palmer was full of enthusiasm for the full blown senior UK Clio Cup race car (which features at British Touring Car events) when he drove it on the same lay-out.
