Fiesta Junior aces sample Clio racers
Former Fiesta Junior rivals Nathan Edwards and Carlito Miracco tested a Renault UK Clio Cup car for the first time with WDE Motorsport last week.
The duo raced against each other in the series in 2015 before Edwards finished fourth in the Quaife Fiesta points this season. Miracco switched to the Cooper S class of the Mini Challenge.
They both tested Paul Rivett’s race-winning car at Donington Park as they assess their options for 2017.
“They were both very, very impressive,” said team boss Wayne Eason. “The times they were doing would’ve been mid Clio pack. They are both looking at it for 2017.
“They’ve been in the MSA Academy together and they just encouraged each other all day long. Carlito has tested the new F56 Mini Challenge car and said the Clio is such a better car, and Nathan has surpassed any expectation I had of him.”
