Davis gets Clio Cup return with Team Pyro
Ben Davis will return to the Renault UK Clio Cup at Silverstone next month with the leading Team Pyro squad.
The 23-year-old made a one-off appearance at the same round last season, impressing with sixth and seventh place finishes, but has not raced since.
He will now return to the series in Ash Hand’s old car for the penultimate round of the championship with an eye on a full campaign in 2017.
“I’ve been working hard over the winter and throughout this year to secure the budget I need but it hasn’t quite happened,” said Davis. “The plan is to use this as a springboard to secure the budget for next year.
“I had a pretty good debut weekend last year considering my lack of experience – I’ve only done three car race weekends – so I’m hoping for something similar. It would be nice to get into the top seven – that would be a very, very good result but I just want to put on a good show.”
