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.”
