Clio Cup Great Britain
The Renault Clio, a true icon of French motoring, will return to British race tracks with an official championship in 2024. The latest racing Clio will take to circuits across the UK in the new Clio Cup Great Britain Championship, to offer a cost-effective route into tin top competition.
Clio Cup GB cars will be prepared to clearly set out regulations with a number of control parts to place the maximum possible emphasis on driver skill. These include but are not limited to a Renault HR13 engine, five-speed Renault Sport SADEV ST 82 sequential gearbox and Renault Sport Racing road wheels.
The championship will visit some of the very best circuits that the UK has to offer, including a highlight event on the prestigious Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit as part of the GT World Challenge Europe event. In total, there are provisionally fourteen rounds scheduled for the debut season of Clio Cup GB across seven race meetings.
Each race weekend will comprise a single qualifying session followed by a pair of races with a minimum length of 20 minutes. The grid for the first race of a race weekend is determined in a traditional manner by the fastest times set during qualifying. Race two’s starting order will be set by the second fastest lap time set by each driver during the same session.
The Clio Cup GB Championship is promoted by MotorSport Vision Trackdays (MSVT), the team behind a well-subscribed and award-wining portfolio - including: eBay MSVT Trackday Trophy, Trackday Championship and EnduroKA, and operated by sister organisation MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR).
