Charlie Ladell will return for a second season in the Renault UK Clio Cup after WDE Motorsport confirmed he would drive for them in 2015.

The 18-year-old, originally from Beyton, will race in the high-profile championship alongside WDE team manager and three-time former champion Paul Rivett and category rookie Rory Green.

Ladell was one of the most improved drivers during his first year in the Renault UK Clio Cup and concluded the 2014 campaign just shy of the overall top 10, despite only contesting 12 of the 18 races.

Achieving a best overall result of fourth place on only his third weekend in the championship, Ladell posted a best Graduate Cup class finish of second during the final race of the year and Rivett fully expects the 18-year-old to be a consistent front-runner from the outset.

“We’ve got very high hopes for Charlie”, said Rivett. “We’d like to see him get that first win and I think he should be able to fight for the championship.”

The Renault UK Clio Cup is part of the British Touring Cars Championship package.
