Ford Fi­esta cham­pion Ross plans Clio switch

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Fi­esta cham­pion JJ Ross plans to race in the Re­nault UK Clio Cup this year.

Ross’s father Bob bought a car at the end of last year, but a me­chan­i­cal prob­lem over Christ­mas meant they have only just started test­ing. The de­lay means it is un­cer­tain whether Ross will be on the grid at Brands Hatch on April 2/3 for round one.

“We’re work­ing flat-out to try and get JJ on the grid at Brands Hatch,” said Bob Ross. “But we’re about two months be­hind on our sched­ule. We want to be go­ing out there with a chance of do­ing well and to make sure JJ is con­fi­dent in the car.”

Ross said that he plans to run his son in the se­ries with­out be­ing part of one of the ex­ist­ing teams.

“There’s no rea­son why we can’t run the car our­selves,” he added. “JJ is so good at giv­ing feed­back and I’ve been rac­ing for years.”
