Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

CIK-FIA Kart­ing Academy Tro­phy cham­pion Cal­lum Brad­shaw tested a Re­nault UK Clio Cup Ju­nior car at Snet­ter­ton last week as his prize for win­ning the Henry Sur­tees Chal­lenge event.

The 15-year-old is look­ing to make the step up to car rac­ing for next year and had in­struc­tion from Phil Glew for the test.

“The UK Clio Cup Ju­nior test was a re­ally good ex­pe­ri­ence – the car was just bril­liant,” said Brad­shaw, who com­peted in the CIK-FIA World Cham­pi­onships in Bahrain ear­lier this month. “It took a short while to get used to the ex­tra height and width com­pared to a kart but I felt I started to adapt quite quickly. A move to cars is on my radar and this is def­i­nitely a cat­e­gory I’m now look­ing at.” ● The cal­en­dar for the in­au­gu­ral sea­son of the UK Clio Cup Ju­nior has been an­nounced, with the series fea­tur­ing along­side the Bri­tish Truck Rac­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Cham­pi­onship for four of its six rounds. The sea­son will be­gin at Thrux­ton, with vis­its to Rock­ing­ham, Don­ing­ton Park, Snet­ter­ton, Brands Hatch and Pem­brey.
