Davis gets Clio Cup re­turn with Team Pyro

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
