Max Coates has be­come the se­cond driver who raced in the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship last sea­son to an­nounce they will com­pete in the Re­nault UK Clio Cup this year.

The 22-year-old had a one-off BTCC out­ing with the Sup­port Our Paras team in 2015 and has pre­vi­ously raced in the Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup and Ginetta Ju­nior.

He will now join tour­ing car squad Cice­ley Mo­tor­sport in Clios this year, join­ing fel­low for­mer BTCC driver Mike Bushell in the se­ries.

“I’ve known the peo­ple at Cice­ley for some time and when they told me they me they wanted to ex­pand on their BTCC team with an en­try into the UK Clio Cup I had my heart set on it,” said Coates. “So it is a bit of a dream come true, par­tic­u­larly with their links to tour­ing cars, which is where I want to be full-time in the fu­ture.”
