Just popped into Toomey Renault in Basildon and they have the Clio Cup brochure in.
Spoke to the service guy Steve and he said they are trying to get the costs of the tuning packages from Renault at the moment.
He also said all the tuning goodies, cage etc. that the Cup will be able to have, will fit the mk2 AND mk1 172, without affecting your warranty...he thinks there will be some engine tuning upgrades as well. So that means Renault fitted and approved engine mods...wicked
they are also getting their demo cup in real soon...
