Clio Cup at Croft 2017

Renault Clio Cup Croft Weekend 2017

The BTCC visit to North Yorkshire included the Renault Clio Cup Croft Weekend 2017. Qualifying saw the fastest lap go to Mike Bushell, who also led the second fastest lap table. The first race on Saturday, in conditions which were far from ideal, saw Bushell keep his lead through the race and take the chequered flag, extending his championship lead, with Team Pyro team mate Nathan Harrison in second place. The third step of the podium went to Daniel Rowbottom.

On Sunday, Bushell started the second race from pole, based on the second fastest lap times. Again, it was to be Bushell’s race, with perhaps the only honour not taken from the weekend was that of fastest lap in the second race which went to Max Coates, who also took second place in the race, ahead of Paul Rivett.

Like the Touring Car Championship, the Renault Clio Cup now takes a break until the end of July when the cars make their way to Norfolk’s Snetterton circuit to start the second half of the season. Meanwhile, here are some photos from Croft.
