While nearly 50 drivers prepare to battle in the Clio Cup Open during the Formula 1 French Grand Prix weekend from June 21-23, Renault Sport Racing has already set the date and chosen the venue for the rematch: July 26-28 at Hockenheim during the German Grand Prix.
After this weekend at Circuit Paul Ricard, Renault Sport Racing offers a new exceptional showcase to the competitors entered in the various Clio Cups held around the world.
During the Formula 1 German Grand Prix from July 26-28, drivers competing in the Clio Cup France, Italy, Spain, Asia, Great-Britain, Central Europe and Middle East, as well as challengers from other categories, will be able to take part in the second Clio Cup Open of 2019.
They will all have the chance – or a second chance – to compete in front of the motorsport elite and an audience especially fond of bumper-to-bumper skirmishes in what will be a unique opportunity for the drivers to enter the Clio Cup Hall of Fame.
The weekend format will be similar to the Clio Cup Open at Le Castellet with one free-practice session, one qualifying session and two races on one of the most legendary tracks.
Faithful to its tradition, Renault Sport Racing will set up special activities aimed to bring the public closer to the competitors to make this weekend unforgettable for all.
Benoit Nogier, Renault Sport Racing Customer Racing Commercial Director: “After the enthusiasm shown by our competitors around the world following the first Clio Cup Open in support of the French Grand Prix, we are delighted to be able to do it again in Germany. One month after the presentation of the competition version of the New Renault Clio that will make its racing debut next year, we will join our Formula 1 team while offering fantastic visibility to a competition with strong values: performance, reliability and affordability. We hope the fans will enjoy this second meeting and that the drivers will make the most of this opportunity to put on an exceptional show on the track.”
