Some of you may be familiar with the front tyre-eating little Renaults from the Clio Cup. They were used in Season One of TPS's Clio Euro Series, a popular and highly competitive series ran on more club-like tracks. If you like them and was thinking about joining the tightly packed field of 30 racers, breathing down each other neck lap after lap, there's good news for you: Clio Euro Series is back in 2012 with Season 2!
The league returns in a virtually unchanged format, targeting a 30+ grid on each of the 6 tracks, chosen with maximizing the overtaking potential of the nimble French cars in mind. Races will utilize the same formula of two short (little over 60km each) races per round, plus a full custom skin support. We are staying with the original rFactor and the modified Clio Cup 2008 mod too.
We kick off on a longest venue, Poland's Poznań GP track, a very raceable, classic F1-compatible track (a special pick from series' new admins) with a raceable layout and a difficult Satan's Smile. Next up is Gran Turismo's fictional Autumn Ring with it's wide turns to allow those four abreast turn-ins that Clio racers love so much and a tricky crested chicane to watch out for. Third in the calendar is a series classic, UK's Thruxton; a VERY high speed track, with virtually half a lap driven around the top speed in sixth gear.
