All 18 of the UK Clio Cup's races will take place at the British Touring Car Championship’s high-profile events which in 2017 attracted a total of 385,100 people and a record 144.5 hours of live free-to-air coverage on ITV4. Races were also streamed live on the ITV.com website – thereby adding to the potential audience reach via handheld devices.
2017's UK Clio Cup was the fastest in history, as witnessed by an astonishing 14 new qualifying and race lap records. A return to Michelin tyres certainly played a hand as did one of the most competitive grids in memory.
