Dropped scores are dropped by Clio Cup

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Dropped scores have been axed from the Re­nault UK Clio Cup this sea­son as part of a num­ber of changes to the se­ries’ reg­u­la­tions.

In the past, driv­ers dropped their two worst re­sults when the fi­nal points were cal­cu­lated but from 2017 all 18 Clio races will count. The rest of the point-scor­ing sys­tem will re­main un­changed.

There have also been tweaks to the Mas­ters Cup con­test of the se­ries, with the lower age limit re­duced from 38 to 34. Test­ing is an­other area al­tered with teams and driv­ers now un­able to test at tracks within 28 days of its Clio Cup meet­ing – whereas be­fore they were banned from test­ing at venues not yet raced at.

The other change is an in­creased prize fund, with the winner of the Mas­ters and Grad­u­ate Cups get­ting 25 per cent off reg­is­tra­tion fees for 2018.
