Stilp becomes third signing for 20Ten
Jordan Stilp has become 20Ten Racing’s third driver signing for the 2014 Renault UK Clio Cup. Making a strong impact in the BTCC feeder series in 2013, ending the season 13th overall and seventh in the Graduate Cup class in his first year of front-wheel drive racing, the Potterspury-based youngster was nonetheless slightly disappointed with the end result. Ahead of his second season, Stilp is aiming for nothing less than front-running consistency.
Beginning his competitive racing career on two wheels rather than four in the ranks of motocross, Stilp switched to karting in 2002 and nine years later graduated into car racing in the Ma5da Mk1 Championship. Ending the season third overall with 10 race wins, earning him the ‘Rookie of the Year’ tag, he went on to become Autumn Series Champion with a clean sweep of victories.
In 2012 the Northamptonshire teenager – younger brother of former Renault UK Clio Cup racer Daniel Stilp – progressed into the Ma5da MX5 Championship and, with seven victories and 15 other podiums, he concluded the season as Vice-Champion.
Now joining the already confirmed Josh Cook and Craig Milner at 20Ten Racing for his second year of Clio Cup action, Stilp’s arrival at the Little Eaton team further boosts the squad’s position and team principal Simon Hunt is certain the youngster is a potential podium challenger.
