The new-look Clio Cup UK Championship has published a provisional, revised 2020 calendar to include seven events – five with the British GT Championship and two still overseas.

In the UK, the full-length Donington Park GP, Brands Hatch GP, Silverstone GP and Snetterton 300 circuits will be used.

 

Similarly, the full-length Magny-Cours (France) and Barcelona GP (Spain) configurations are schedule to be part of the calendar.

 

Both the Brands Hatch and Magny-Cours events (back-to-back in late August/early September) will be contested jointly by teams and drivers from Clio Cup UK and Clio Cup France.

 

Two races (or rounds) will be held at each event to form a 14-round championship.

 

Clio Cup UK 2020 will see the latest ‘fifth generation’ Clio Cup race car used for the first time – new video footage of the car along with its Rally and RX (Rallycross) versions being built inside Renault Sport Racing production plant was released in April.

All three versions are based around the same car but with adjustments to confirm to the discipline they are to be used for…

 

Under the bonnet is a potent 1.3 turbocharged engine producing some 180bhp.

 

Cars for competition in Clio Cup UK or the UK rallying and rallycross scenes can be ordered via Renault Sport Racing’s official importer R.Sport: r_sport_uk@hotmail.com or tel 07733 330421.
