It was not the early Christ­mas present any­one was want­ing. The news that 2019 will be the fi­nal sea­son of the Re­nault UK Clio Cup was met with dis­ap­point­ment.

There have been some bril­liant races over the years and wouldn’t it be great if things could end with a bang and we have a mem­o­rable fi­nal sea­son?

Be­ing re­al­is­tic, there are con­cerns over en­try lev­els as a num­ber of top driv­ers from last year progress on to new se­ries. But it would be great if some stars of the past re­turn to help give the cham­pi­onship a fit­ting send-off.

Re­gard­less of grid size, one event I’m par­tic­u­larly look­ing for­ward to is Knock­hill. Not since 2015 have the Clios vis­ited the Scot­tish venue and with it of­ten pro­vid­ing spec­tac­u­lar rac­ing it should be a spe­cial event.
