Luke Wright is the only AirAsia Renault Clio Cup UK entrant in this weekend’s ‘Cross Channel Challenge’ at Silverstone; so far at least, he’s the only driver we need to make an impact against the large field of Dutch drivers.
The Scuderia Vittoria driver topped the times in yesterday evening’s collective test on the technical Silverstone GP circuit. On his penultimate lap, Wright posted a time of 2:27.432, six tenths quicker than his nearest rival, Sebastiaan Bleekemolen (Team Bleekemolen).
Qualifying for this weekend’s races begins at 11:20am today, and the first race is at 5:54pm tonight.
We’re speaking with Luke shortly, and will post the interview online later today.
