LYDDEN HILL’S FIGHT TO RUN RACES
Ford Fiesta Championship runner-up Scott Robertson will graduate to the Renault UK Clio Cup this year with Jam Sport.
The 25-year-old Scot comes from a racing family as his grandfather Walter starred in sportscars and GTS, while his father Steve was successful in Formula Ford 2000.
Robertson raced for Jam Sport in Fiestas and will now partner Ant Whorton-eales and Tom Grundy in its Clio team.
“I’ve seen the UK Clio Cup in action on the British Touring Car Championship support bill and really want a piece of it,” he said. “A number of drivers I’ve raced against have made the step up to it and now it’s my time to make that step.
“I’ve raced with Jam Sport in the Ford Fiesta series and have seen just how determined they are, and having Ant and Tom as benchmarks is going to help me no end.”
Jam Sport team principal Jamie Going said: “We’ve seen some terrific form from Scott and feel now that the time is right for him to graduate to the Renault Clio Cup.
“He is a real talent and we are hopeful of having three cars fighting for wins and podium results in the championship this season.”
