The Renault Clio Sport 200 is renowned as one of the best production based race cars of all time.
Professionally built to identical specification by Renault Sport in France, the use of sealed and controlled parts ensures an even playing field for all competitors where great drivers come to the fore.
It’s no surprise to find that nine of the 2016 BTCC grid have raced this car on their career ladder to Touring Cars. In fact, it’s probably the closest car to the current BTCC cars racing in the UK today.
Now running under management of BARC and promoted by Westbourne the Clio Cup Series enables competitors to experience this fantastic car at a club level budgets but still with peace of mind that all cars are identical.
For drivers new to motorsport or those on a tighter budget the Clio Cup Series also offers a road version of the Clio 200, which can be built using a donor Renault 197 road car, with a kit of parts supplied by R Sport in the UK.
The build process is simple with advice and help available from the teams that run in the championship or you can choose to buy a ready built race car from one of the teams. The road car uses treaded Michelin Pilot Sport tyres as a control tyre and the durability coupled to a strict limited use policy keep costs to a minimum.
