Richard Colburn the championship promoter said:

“It gives me great pleasure to announce this latest, exciting new partnership between the Clio Cup Series and the Britcar Dunlop Endurance Championship.

“Taking on board the feedback from our competitors – higher-profile events, TV coverage, hospitality options and, above all, reduced costs – this presented by far the best option and I believe the championship heads into 2020 stronger than ever. The Britcar team operate an incredibly successful and professionally run championship and the fit for Clio is excellent.

“The calendar continues to feature a wide range of the UK’s most challenging circuits, and with capacity fields, the action on-track will certainly speak for itself!

“We’re currently finalising our draft regulations, and expect more announcements soon.”

Jamie Sturges announces his entry into the Trophy Category, the reigning Castle Combe GT and AMOC GT Champion will be out for another trophy in 2020 piloting a 2014 SEAT Leon Eurocup, sponsored by Ramair Filters and Racetruck UK.
