Fatality at Thruxton

The British Automobile Racing Club has confirmed that a competitor in the Renault Clio Cup series was killed at Thruxton on Saturday afternoon.

The fatal incident took place at Noble corner in the closing stages of the Clio event. The driver was 43-year-old Kevin Lloyd, and no other driver was injured in the crash.

A statement from the BARC read: "The British Automobile Racing Club and Thruxton Circuit very much regret to announce that following a racing accident at today's race meeting a Renault Clio competitor succumbed to his injuries despite immediate attention from the circuit's four doctors."

Renault UK Motorsport Manager Tim Jackson commented: "It is with deep regret we make this announcement today and on behalf of Renault UK, the BARC and Thruxton Circuit, I wish to extend our deepest, heartfelt condolences to Kevin's family and friends.

"Kevin was a unique character, not just in the Renault paddock but through the whole of British Motorsport. He competed every race weekend with the sole aim of having fun and this he achieved while also making many good friends along the way."
