Renault Sport has once again chosen the Monte-Carlo Rally, the inaugural round of the World Rally Championship, to present its new unit, the Clio Rally4. As with the Clio Rally5 in the last edition, Florian Bernardi will be the driver in charge of driving it.
The young French competitor also performed safety car duties with the new Renault Clio Rally5, a car that has been widely accepted in many markets. Spain has been one of them thanks to the creation of the already consolidated Clio Trophy Spain.
Bernardi has had the opportunity to get on more Renault models. He already drove different racing units such as the Twingo RS R1, Clio R3T or the aforementioned Rally4 and Rallly5. As in 2020, Victor Belloto will be the navigator for the adventure through the Monegasque sections.
The new Clio Rally4 has enjoyed several kilometers of development with drivers of the stature of Stéphane Sarrazin and Bryan Bouffier, among others. The FIA must give the go-ahead before its release on the market. March 1 is the date set by the French brand for the homologation date. A few weeks later, we could already see several units in our rallies.
Jorge Cagiao and Amelia Blanco, winners of the Clio Trophy Spain in 2020, are guaranteed a participation with this vehicle in the Spanish Asphalt Rally Championship. Víctor Aguirre, U24 Rally Champion in Spain, is also looking for support to race with the car in 2021.
