Clio Cup At Oulton Park

Added: 24th June 2007

2007 marks the first full year of the new 197 based Clio Cup race car, replacing the older 172/182 model. These 205bhp hatches ensure close racing and fierce competition by removing any mechanical superiority advantage.

Supplied by Renault as a blank white canvas, each team exhibits its brushwork on the car body, competing not only for grid positions but also the most attention for their sponsors.

Although intended for competition, any private individual may purchase one for the very reasonable sum of £20,500+vat. An ideal track day missile, or with a bit of work, a road car?

We took the opportunity to visit Oulton Park where the series was appearing with the BTCC. Here’s what we found in the paddock.
