Provisional JSCC champion to test Clio
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.
