Clio 172 Cup race car


Race winning, competitive & well known Clio 172 Cup race car. Trophies to prove it :)

2002 car with V5 & MOT (until Jan 2023)

Unusually for a full blown race car it's road legal with a daylight MOT.

This is incredibly useful for Trackdays and testing when you don't want to take a trailer.

I've only used the best parts and got the professionals to work on it (e.g. Mark Fish, Andy @ Engine Dynamics )

I've owned this car for 5 years and spent way to much on it improving everything in the quest for lap time.

The car now weighs 900kg with another 40kg to lose if you went with fibreglass doors.

I've kept it at 900kg and 189bhp Cat camshaft and map @ Engine Dynamics - Dyno sheet to prove it.

At over 200bhp per ton it is genuinely rapid!

This is a reliable, light and fast Clio which handles like nothing else.

If you're an experienced racer or a novice this car is so easy to drive.

It's also excellent in the wet, regularly troubling and beating much more powerful cars.

It's not concours condition but it's not bad for a race car.

All the hard work has been done - belts, diff, cams, suspension etc.

You will not find a better race car under £10k

I know I won't get the money back but here's a list of the spec highlights:

Cat camshafts (5502428) - £715

Engine Dynamics Remap & Dyno - £500

Recaro SP-G Hans seat - £2000

Gripper Diff (fitted by Mark Fish) - £1100

Lifeline quick release steering wheel boss - £200

Upgraded power steering hose (a notorious weak point) - £150

Mocal Oil catch tank (mandatory now to race) - £100

Forge silicone hoses throughout - £150

Brake cooling ducts & air deflectors - £150

Wheel stud conversion - £50

New 4 litre extinguisher (new mandatory requirement) - £260

Pure Track Front splitter - £200

I daren't add this lot up but feel free to yourself ;)

The reality is, to convert a stripped out track car into a reliable and competitive race car takes a lot of time and money.

I've done all the hard work over the last 5 years so it's now completely ready to go.

Better still, because it's MOT'd and road legal I have a full history with the car and a huge file of invoices and receipts.

This is rare for a race car.

Be it for trackdays or racing - you will get in this car and be quick straight away. 

Car is for sale with the Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 alloys as shown in the last picture.

The Recaro seat will only be included with the full asking price. A replacement Sparco Sprint seat (nearly new and race legal) will be included otherwise.
