Ze­los hopes to con­vert prom­ise to solid re­sults with move to WDE Clio out­fit

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Re­nault UK Clio Cup racer Dan Ze­los will switch to WDE Mo­tor­sport this season.

The 18-year-old fin­ished 18th in the points last year with Cice­ley Mo­tor­sport and showed flashes of speed but was un­able to con­vert that into strong race re­sults.

WDE boss Wayne Ea­son says he should be a reg­u­lar podium fin­isher this season, his sec­ond in Clios af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Ginetta Ju­nior. “I’m quite ex­cited to get him out in the car be­cause he showed a lot of prom­ise last year but I don’t think he was given what he needed to de­liver,” said Ea­son. “At the first round last year he was on the front row of the grid and at Thrux­ton he was quick so he’s got a mas­sive amount of po­ten­tial.

“He can be a podium fin­isher and he’s ca­pa­ble of win­ning races and it’s a ques­tion of how quickly we can get him to where he needs to be. The only thing he lacked last year was con­fi­dence in the car and hav­ing some­one like Paul [Rivett, WDE team man­ager and triple Clio cham­pion] will help with that.”

Ze­los will work with WDE in 2017
