Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Three-time Re­nault UK Clio Cup cham­pion Paul Rivett will again com­pete in the se­ries this year with WDE Mo­tor­sport.

The 37-year-old fin­ished fourth in the stand­ings in 2015 but is de­ter­mined to add an­other ti­tle this sea­son.

“I’ve got a new spon­sor on board this year and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it,” he said. “I feel there’s an­other ti­tle in me and I’m more hun­gry than ever. I’ve won a ti­tle with each gen­er­a­tion of car [since his de­but in 2001] and it would be great to now win with the fourth.

“As well as the driver’s ti­tle we’ll aim to go for the teams’ too. We’ve got a good line-up and there’s no rea­son why we can’t win it.”

WDE boss Wayne Ea­son added: “This is the most con­fi­dent and pos­i­tive I’ve seen Paul about the year ahead since I’ve started work­ing with him. His en­thu­si­asm for it rubs off on peo­ple and he’s so good at what he does so we’re over the moon to have him back out.”

Rivett will again link-up with the WDE team for this sea­son
