Clio, spend them pennies.

Recommended Posts

A normal 182 sure, I'll destroy the engine in half an hour. But I couldn't abuse a trophy. :(

The engines are generally pretty tough.

 

Mine is a high miler so not one of them mega buck investment pieces. Also I bought it to use so it’s getting some use. Got two more track days booked for the year. At the end of the day it’s only a clio. Easily fixable.

Good effort, nixe to see it used in anger given the time and effort you put into keeping it so nice.

 

On their day, these things are just epic fun for money!

 

Mine mainly have off days:(

Touch every tree in Sherwood Forest mine has been mega reliable over the last couple of years. But it’s only done 4/5k probably in that time so not really a indication.

Did a full day at Blyton today.

 

Did a bit of prep beforehand, well I changed the oil and then the power steering fluid just because.

Ran perfect all day, did a good amount of laps. Stuck to a max of 6/7 laps then came in to let it cool down.

Was pretty quiet so had some good spells with no in front.

 

There was a few good motors there.

Blyton is a good little track that suits the clio well as the straights aren’t too long.

 

The French little France kept going all day while others dropped out, mainly BMW’s and vag stuff.

Saw that Talbot on the back of a trailer near Lincoln on my way to work! Small world.

Been using this a fair bit lately just for the sake of it.

 

Just before it started getting dark early I went for a ace thrash along the back roads and it is just ace when your wringing it’s neck.

But gave it a good clean and tucked it away.

Bit too far?

Got this out of winter hibernation for a trip down to goodwood.

 

It was a hot hatch themed breakfast meet, I have never been to goodwood and have always wanted to visit.

 

Shame it’s a 400 mile round trip like.

 

Was far too many fiesta st’s with flashing led headlights that looked shit and every imaginable combo of 135’s and 140’s.

 

Not enough metro action.

 

This was mint and a cool young family rocked up in it which made it even beterererer.

There was a mintola type r that was a bit ricer but also a bit special. Would if I could pull it off.

There we go. Was good but not amazing.

 

Was going to get the scimitar out from it’s storage, as it’s a hatch, and if there is any traffic it’s hot alright.

 

But in the end took the continental cruiser clio.

Still spending a fortune on this.

Bought a recaro pole position basically as there badass and a Schroth harness. Was a pain in the arse getting it fitted.

Originally fitted it using the original recaro trendline base but It was wayyyyyy to high. So got hold of a custom base but then needed side mounts to fit it. Bought recaro ones. But they didn’t fit.

Bought some omp ones, they did fit.

That small process took about three months.

Thrashed the bollocks of this all day a few sundays back at Blyton. It was bleeding roasting 35 Degrees, the old girl took plenty of sessions in her stride and then drove home. If i started to do more than say 6/7/8 laps at a time the temp would creep up over half but only to say 3/4 on the gauge.  Brakes held up well with pretty much no fade at all, there was a few clios there as per every trackday, had a good few battles. Two suffered with power steering faults as the fluid was boiling over and coming out the reservoir, mine was okay but I did replace all the fluid a year or so ago so maybe that helped as it was fresh.

Was running some Nankang Ar1's and they were mega compared to the Ad08r's.
