l BARNSTAPLE car racer Jonathan Ridley-Holloway has confirmed new sponsorship deals ahead of his maiden full season in the ELF Renault Clio Cup.Driving for Total Control Racing, Jonathan will receive backing this year from Bond Oxborough Phillips, PicoPC.co.uk and A4 Apparel, for his first ever summer season of sprint racing in the all-action ELF Renault Clio Cup.The 23-year-old racer has had a solid pre-season programme in recent weeks, including at Oulton Park, Rockingham and Brands Hatch. Most recently, he joined competitors at Silverstone, where he ran for the first time with his 2008 bright orange livery. "We were consistently quickest in wet conditions so I'm very pleased about that", said Jonathan. "We ran slicks on the front and wet tyres on the rear in the final session and held the top spot for quite a while. We were done over by the guys on full slicks towards the end, which was a shame."The first two rounds of the 2008 ELF Renault Clio Cup is at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Kent this weekend and Sunday's racing may be screened live on ITV4 as part of the British Touring Car Championship television package.
