Large Clio grid
The Renault UK Clio Cup featured its largest opening round grid since 2013 at Brands Hatch last weekend as 23 drivers took part. Late entries for series returnee Peter Felix (20Ten Racing) and Rory Green (WDE Motorsport) helped boost numbers. Green had initially expected to skip the opening round due to his studies but made a late decision to take part after a promising pre-season test. Championship manager Will Fewkes said that he expected more drivers to join the category in the next few rounds.
