Prize drives on offer for Fiesta, Clio racers
The winners of the BRSCC Fiesta Championship and the BARC’S Michelin Clio Series’ Road and Race categories will receive prize drives this season.
A test in one of Motorbase Performance’s British Touring Car Championship Ford Focus STS is on offer to the overall Fiesta champion, after series bosses agreed a tie-up with BTCC tyre supplier Dunlop.
“The Fiesta Championship produced some great grids and competitive racing last season so we wanted to put something back into the championship for 2017,” said Dunlop Motorsport’s Mickey Butler. “Motorbase Performance are the ideal team to do the test with and the champion will benefit greatly from the experience.”
Meanwhile, the leaders of both Clio classes with a round to spare will be offered the opportunity to race in the final round of the main Clio Cup UK series and a Gen-3 Clio test day.
The prize has been put forward by Westbourne Motorsport, which co-promotes the series alongside the BARC, which will enter a car for the leader of the ‘Race’ class for the final round of the TOCA support series at Brands Hatch, while the ‘Road’ leader will receive a fully funded test day in a Clio 200 race car.
