Robertshaw Racing

These guys are running MINI Challenge series, Formula Renault UK Championship and the ELF Renault Clio Cup Championship

Newcastle based team Robertshaw Racing has confirmed its driver line-up in preparation for a unique twin challenge on the Formula Renault UK Championship and the ELF Renault Clio Cup Championship, with the team making its debut in both series.

Team Principal Gary Robertshaw will race in the ELF Renault Clio Cup with Alex Williams, who raced for the team in last season's Scottish Mini Cooper series, contesting the Formula Renault UK Championship.

Commenting on the difficulty of entering both series, Robertshaw, 31, said: "It will be a challenge, but I love a challenge. We'll have slightly more manpower on the Formula Renault side because that is more of an unknown to us. We have experience with Mini Coopers and although Clio Cup is a step up from that, it should be a smoother transition."

The team, based in Borden Colliery just outside Newcastle, was formed three years ago to race in the John Cooper Challenge. Robertshaw's own karting career, which began at age 10, ended at British Championship level due to a lack of funding. But since forming the new team, he has won the 2004 John Cooper Challenge and is now relishing the new season.
