Clio Cup UK is set to stage the very first races for the new Clio Cup 5 race car after the Coronavirus outbreak forced the postponement of the opening rounds of its sister championship in France.
Clio Cup France was due to get under way at Nogaro in mid-April.
However, that event has now been re-scheduled for July, meaning its opening rounds are instead expected to be held during the annual Pau street circuit fixture on 21-24 May.
Clio Cup UK’s opening rounds – a week earlier than that on 16-17 May at Snetterton – will therefore mark the competitive debut for the fifth generation Clio Cup car.
