Renault UK Clio Cup Driver
Date of Birth: 18 April 1999
After a part-season in 2015 due to age restrictions, James sealed the Michelin Clio Cup Series title in his first full season in the category in 2016. Registering twelve podium finishes, eight race victories, eleven pole positions and six fastest laps. The Westbourne Motorsport ace took the title at the world-famous Silverstone Circuit and earned wider recognition from Autosport magazine as one of the club racers of the season. The championship provides a home to the third-generation Clio Cup car used in the flagship Renault UK Clio Cup until 2013, and provided James with a wide-ranging experience, not least in managing a closely-fought title fight.
At the start of 2017 James stepped up to the toughest single-make championship in the UK is no mean feat, but James' talent commanded respect from the first meeting and he finished his first season in the Renault UK Clio Cup as the only driver among the crop of rookies to take a race victory, overturning eventual champion Mike Bushell with a dramatic, last-gasp move at Thruxton. His potential was cemented with a further victory at Silverstone in monsoon conditions followed by the runner-up spot in the hotly-contested Graduates Cup, and James will aim to go one further and challenge for the overall title in his sophomore season. The championship is home to the latest fourth-generation Clio Cup car and races on the British Touring Car Championship support package, and as such benefits from a capacity crowd track side at nine events across the UK and millions more through ITV's live television coverage. The series is widely recognised as a superb proving ground for aspiring touring car and GT racers – over half of the 2017 British Touring Car Championship grid graced the championship at some stage.
