Three car squad for Westbourne’s Clio Cup return

Westbourne is aiming to return to the UK Clio Cup grid with three cars in the 2017 season, as well as joining the new Clio Cup Junior championship.

Last season, the squad joined PP Motorsport as technical partner, but haven’t raced in the series since 2014. Instead, the team has been focusing on the clib-level Michelin Clio Series, where it took the title this season.

Westbourne will be testing driver in the up coming months, but hope that their Michelin Clio Series drivers will follow them to the Clio Cup.

“The UK Clio Cup has become such a great championship again and I’m very hopeful that two of our drivers from the Michelin series will join us in it in 2017,” team principal Richard Colburn said. “It is all coming together very nicely for a return and there’s a very real possibility that we’ll be running three cars – maybe even four.”

Colburn says he hopes to be making driver announcements soon, following the upcoming tests.
