49-year-old Mark Howard will contest the 2014 Renault Clio Cup season twenty one years after he won the Renault 5 Turbo UK Cup.

The Nottinghamshire-based Howard will return under the DRM Motorsport solutions guise in an attempt to rekindle his former cup glory, and is looking forward to getting back into competition.

“Twenty one years after winning the Renault 5 Turbo championship, I’m back with Renault to race people who weren’t even born when I had my previous success!”

“I can’t wait to get out there in the car and I’m looking forward to working with Daniel [Rowbottom] and his team. It’s a big challenge, one I really am relishing, but I’m not taking anything for granted as it’s a very long time since I won in the Renault 5 Turbo UK Cup!”

The Renault Clio Cup season begins on March 29.
