22 June 2020

  • Reanult Megane RS Trophy-R Esteban Ocon

Revised calendars for France’s Clio Trophy (rally) and Clio Cup (race) and the Formula Renault single-seater championships have been published.

Both Clio categories will use the latest ‘fifth generation’ 1.3 turbocharged Clio competition car.


The Clio Rally version has already seen action in 2020 with the first five cars off the production line taking part in March’s World Rally Championship round in Mexico.


However, Rallye Mont-Blanc Morzine in early September – round one of the Clio Trophy – will mark the car’s debut in Europe.


It is anticipated crews entered for Clio Trophy 2020 will begin to take delivery of their cars in July…


The new Clio Trophy 2020 calendar is as follows:


  • 3-5 September: Rallye Mont-Blanc Morzine 
  • 25-27 September: Rallye Cœur de France
  • 16-18 October: Rallye Antibes Côte d’Azur
  • 29-31 October: Critérium des Cévennes
  • 27-29 November: Rallye du Var
  • Renault Esport

Meanwhile the Clio 5’s race version, Clio Cup, will make its competitive track debut in France in mid-August at the pretty Circuit Paul Armagnac de Nogaro.


In all, seven events have been published and at three of them – Brands Hatch, Magny-Cours and Barcelona – the French teams and drivers are set to race with their Clio Cup UK counterparts.


Renault Sport Racing says it expects the first cars for the championship to be ready for teams in June…


Clio Cup France race dates are as follows:


  • 21-23 August: Circuit Paul Armagnac de Nogaro (France)
  • 28-30 August: Brands Hatch Circuit (United Kingdom)
  • 11-13 September: Circuit Nevers Magny-Cours (France)
  • 2-4 October: Circuit Paul Ricard (France)
  • 16-18 October: Circuit d’Albi (France)
  • 6-8 November: Circuit de Lédenon (France)
  • 14-15 November: Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (Spain)
  • Reanult Megane RS Trophy-R Esteban Ocon

Meanwhile, Formula Renault Eurocup will provisionally run to a ten-event calendar – nine of them at established Grand Prix circuits in mainland Europe before the season finale at Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi.


The category has a long history of producing Formula 1 stars of the future (see separate story) and in recent times has been won by the likes of McLaren F1 ace Llando Norris and Renault Sport Academy driver Max Fewtrell.


Formula Renault Eurocup’s 2020 calendar is:


  • 9-11 July Monza (Italy)
  • 24-26 July Imola (Italy)
  • 4-6 September Nürburgring (Germany)
  • 11-13 September Circuit Nevers Magny-Cours (France)
  • 25-27 September Zandvoort (Holland)
  • 9-11 October Barcelona-Catalunya (Spain)
  • 22-24 October Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium)
  • 6-8 November Höckenheim (Germany)
