New for 2019 is our super high-tec Renault Clio Trophy 220. Following on from the Renaultsport Clio 200, the Trophy boasts various upgrades from this model and is the fastest accelerating Renaultsport Clio ever produced, eclipsing even the revered Renaultsport Clio V6. The book time for the Clio 220 Trophy is 6.6 seconds however we have already clocked an impressive 5.9s dash from 0-60mph and this was without the benefit of its optional launch control...

The Mazda MX5 needs no introduction. We all know what it is and how it goes about its business. Many people will argue over whether they believe it is a 'proper' sports car, but those non-believers may never have driven a prepared one on circuit. So, if you haven't taken time out of your busy schedule to meet us at your local circuit and grab the keys, let us inform you of why our MX5 is possibly more car than you'll ever need.
