Howard makes Renault return after 21ys
Mark Howard, the 1993 Renault 5 ELF Turbo UK Cup Champion, will rekindle his association with the Renault brand this season, some 21 years since winning the title, having purchased a new fourth generation Clio Cup car for participation in the 2014 Renault UK Clio Cup.
49-year-old Howard will contest his maiden season in Renault UK’s flagship contemporary saloon car championship with the former’s Kidderminster based DRM Motorsport Solutions squad.
After winning the Renault 5 title with Mark Fish Motorsport, Howard departed the racing scene to focus on family and business commitments but made a long overdue return to action in 2011 in the Volkswagen Racing Cup.
Making a handful of appearances in Radicals the following year, added to a few more VW outings, he returned to the sidelines once again in 2013 but is now ready to mount a full-time campaign in the prestigious Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship-supporting Renault UK Clio Cup.
