Zelos moves to Clios with Ciceley
Ginetta Junior frontrunner Dan Zelos will graduate into the Renault UK Clio Cup with British Touring Car Championship squad Ciceley Racing this year.
The 17-year-old has spent two seasons in Ginettas with JHR Developments, finishing fourth in the points on both occasions.
He will now handle one of the 200bhp hatchbacks as part of Ciceley’s two-car expansion into the Clio Cup this year. The team has also signed Ollie Pidgley.
“I loved the Clio straight away when I tested it,” said Zelos. “It’s like a mini touring car and is very smooth and easy to drive. It’s got more power than I’m used to and I’ve got to get used to front-wheel drive and slick tyres.
“It was a tough decision to leave JHR but it’s always beneficial to see how other teams work and Ciceley are very professional too. It was a chance that was too good to turn down.”
