Thompson returns for Clio Cup finale at Brands Hatch

Aaron Thompson will return to the UK Clio Cup with Westbourne Motorsport for the final rounds at Brands Hatch next weekend.

Thompson contested in the first two rounds of the season at Brands Hatch and Donington, picking up podium results at both circuits, but has missed the remainder of the season due to other commitments.

Speaking about his return to the championship, Thompson said:  “Although we’ve missed most of the rounds this year due to other commitments, these are the last ever races for the UK Clio Cup so I really didn’t want to miss out on such a special event.

“The racing has been exceptional this year and a big talking point for fans and this being the title decider it’s a chance to remind people what I’m capable of before we go into the winter break.”

Westbourne Motorsport will also be fielding it’s joint Team Principal, James Colburn, who last raced for the team in June at Croft.

He narrowly missed out on the UK Clio Cup championship in 2012 at the Brands Hatch GP circuit and will be hoping to put on a competitive showing after taking a best finish of fifth earlier in the year.

Westbourne Motorsport regulars Ben Colburn and Finlay Robinson will complete the team’s line-up in the UK Clio Cup’s final round.
