BMR Academy and Pyro Motorsport driver Bradley Burns celebrated an outstanding start to his 2018 Renault UK Clio Cup season last weekend (7/8 April) when he enjoyed double podium success at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Kent.
16-year-old Bradley, one of the youngest ever drivers to race in the Renault UK Clio Cup, crossed the line in an impressive 12th place and taking the Graduate Cup win in his debut race at the short 1.2 mile circuit on Saturday afternoon.
On a wet track on Sunday he then bettered that result and visited the podium for a second time with an additional Graduate Cup win and an astonishing 6th place finish after running as high as third during an enthralling battle with three-time champion Paul Rivett. Bradley was then promoted to 5th following a post-race penalty for fellow competitor Sam Osbourne.
Bradley commented: “We struggled a bit in qualifying which put us on the back-foot for the races. By the second race we were able to get into the mix towards the front and get some good points. I’m happy with two wins in the Graduates Cup and hope we can build on this at Donington.”
Mark Hunt of Pyro Motorsport commented: “We had a very good weekend, Bradley was focused and precise throughout and we are looking forward to Donington and aiming for podiums in three weeks’ time.”
