Ze­los moves to Clios with Cice­ley

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
