Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
