Clark to race at Rockingham

BRDC Rising Star, Kieren Clark of Cambridge, has announced a last minute entry into this weekends Formula Renault UK race, on April 24th and 25th, part of the British Touring Car weekend at Rockingham.

Kieren will again be racing with the successful Loughborough based Scorpio Motorsport team that took him to victory in last years 2009 BARC Formula Renault championship.

"I'm delighted to be able to be in this weekends race, having missed out on the first rounds at Thruxton" said Kieren. "It has all come together very late, and at this stage it's only for this weekend, but we are discussing the rest of the season with quite a few people, so hopefully we can demonstrate what we can do at Rockingham and encourage other organisations to come and work with us."

"It will be the first time I've driven the car seriously, it's a new lighter and more powerful car, with much more aerodynamic grip than the previous year's car. It's also equipped with a seven speed sequential gearbox, so that will be fun. It will put me at a bit of a disadvantage to the guys with testing, and the first races under their belt, but that gives me something to aim at."

Qualifying is on Saturday, with 2 races on Sunday 25th. The first race is scheduled to start at 10.35, with the second race being shown live on ITV4 at 15.55. Both races will also be shown on Motors TV later in the month.
