Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
