Mizzi confirmed at Westbourne
Jacques Mizzi will make a return to the UK racing scene this year after finalising a deal with Westbourne Motorsport to contest the 12 round Michelin Clio Cup Race Series.
The 21-year-old from Malta made his car racing debut last year in the British Touring Car Championship-supporting Renault UK Clio Cup with Westbourne but is now switching to the sister Clio Cup Series for its first year as a fully-fledged championship.
After becoming Maltese KF1 Karting Champion in 2009, Mizzi graduated to KF2 level the following year and after a season on the sidelines he moved into cars in time trial events driving a Mégane Renaultsport R26. In 2013 he travelled to Britain for his maiden season of circuit racing.
By agreeing terms with the Maltese driver for the Michelin Clio Cup Race Series, Westbourne will this year have a presence on each rung of Renault UK’s saloon car ladder with James Colburn and Devon Modell competing in the Courier Connections Renault UK Clio Cup and Anton Spires racing in the Michelin Clio Cup Road Series.
