Pro­vi­sional JSCC cham­pion to test Clio

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Pro­vi­sional Ju­nior Sa­loon Car Cham­pi­onship win­ner Mat­teo Zanetti is set to test a Miche­lin Clio Cup Se­ries car with West­bourne Mo­tor­sport at Don­ing­ton Park dur­ing the win­ter, with a view to grad­u­at­ing into the cham­pi­onship next year.

The 16-year-old’s age makes him in­el­i­gi­ble to de­fend his crown, which he se­cured with West­bourne’s as­sis­tance this sea­son, should it be rat­i­fied af­ter an ap­peal by pro­vi­sional run­ner-up Katie Mil­ner.

The cham­pi­onship will for­mally go down to a hear­ing at the MSA Court of Ap­peal af­ter Mil­ner has ap­pealed her ex­clu­sion from both races at Knock­hill for a tech­ni­cal in­fringe­ment.

“Pretty much 80 per cent of the grid are back­ing us,” said Mil­ner, who would be the first fe­male driver to win the se­ries if her ap­peal is suc­cess­ful and her Knock­hill points re­in­stated.
