Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Cice­ley Mo­tor­sport has an­nounced plans to com­pete in the Clio Cup ju­nior series, which will launch next year.

The Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship out­fit ex­panded into the main Clio Cup series for 2016, and cur­rently runs cars for Max Coates, Ol­lie Pidge­ley and Dan Ze­los.

Cice­ley has now ex­pressed its in­tent to run a team in the six-round ju­nior series, which is be­ing tar­geted at driv­ers aged be­tween 14 and 17.

Team man­ager and BTCC racer Adam Mor­gan said: “It makes sense to us and the num­ber of en­quiries we’ve had about this has con­vinced us [to run a team].

“The ju­nior car rac­ing scene needs a fresh ap­proach and this is ex­actly what Re­nault UK are pro­vid­ing. We be­lieve this is the per­fect plat­form to start a young driver’s de­vel­op­ment.”
