Championship manager Simon North said: "Added to the prestige of winning one of UK motorsport's biggest and most coveted titles, our champion will also have the chance to showcase their skills in a current specification NGTC touring car.

"On behalf of everyone involved with the Renault UK Clio Cup, I'd like to say a huge thank you to Dunlop and Motorbase."

The champion will also be loaned a new 1.6-litre Clio Renaultsport 200 road car.

The most recent Clio graduates to become BTCC race winners are Dave Newsham and Aron Smith, while 2012 Clio champion Jack Goff is planning to step up this season with Team HARD.
