As our round-up of the Donington Park BTCC & Clio Cup weekend shows, there was lots going on at Donington this weekend, excellent on-track action from the Courier Connections Clio Cup races on Sunday to the frantic wet and dry BTCC races.
We were most excited however to unveil our Renault 5 GT Turbo winners prize to the paddock and fans on the Saturday morning. As we rolled the freshly painted, 1989 example out of the trailer on the Saturday morning it immediately drew attention from the day’s early race go’ers. Sitting proudly next to some newer Clio examples outside the Renault race centre for the day made for the perfect stand to show-off the beauty of the finished car. The perseverance with the paint restoration immediately paid off as it glistened in the sunlight, with discussion and conversation about the car growing between fans and paddock alike.
We are certain that the car will make a unique one-of-a-kind prize that we will be happy to present to the drivers champion at Brands Hatch GP at the close of the season. The car will be displayed to all the upcoming Clio Cup meetings, so be sure to come and take a look, in the meantime, enjoy some pictures that we managed to grab!
