This weekend sees the finale of the 2018 Renault UK Clio Cup and I am still very much in the Championship!
I started the season with high hopes after joining championship winning Team Pyro, however after Oulton Park in June, I made the decision to move away from the team and operate the car independently. That meant in the narrow two-week window between Oulton Park and Croft, Cataclean bought a new car from Renault in France and everyone pulled together to get ready for race weekend.
We had some urgent discussions with my main sponsor Cataclean after Oulton Park and felt we could do a good job running the car on our own. We ordered a new car, which wasn’t ready until Monday of race week. I got a brief run on a track day at Donington on Wednesday and then we had to head for Croft so it was all a bit last minute. I came away from the weekend with a podium 3rd in race one and then a 4th in race two. The positivity continued over the next two rounds, recording wins at both Snetterton and Rockingham and then a 3rd at Silverstone at the penultimate weekend.
The series returns to Brands Hatch and the Grand Prix circuit this Saturday and Sunday and with any one of the top 4 still in contention for the 2018 title, its sure to be bumper to bumper racing. BRING IT ON!
