Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Re­nault UK Clio Cup out­fits 20Ten Rac­ing and Team Pyro will en­ter a part­ner­ship to run mul­ti­ple cars in the new Clio Ju­nior se­ries next sea­son.

Team Pyro is the most suc­cess­ful cur­rent team in the main Clio se­ries but team prin­ci­pal Mark Hunt doesn’t want a full Ju­nior cam­paign to dis­tract from the se­nior bid. 20Ten Rac­ing will run the cars with en­gi­neer­ing help from Pyro.

The 20Ten team boss Si­mon Hunt said: “Mark wants to con­cen­trate on the main se­ries. He sug­gested would I be in­ter­ested in do­ing Ju­niors with him. To work with him would be great.

“We are go­ing to trans­port and main­tain the cars and Mark is go­ing to try and get the drivers on board and en­gi­neer the cars at race week­ends.” ● Re­nault will hold a ‘sam­pler’ day for drivers look­ing to en­ter the Clio Cup Ju­nior next year on Oc­to­ber 30 at Bly­ton Park. The cat­e­gory is for 14- to 17-year-olds and prospec­tive rac­ers will have to pay run­ning costs to teams.
