Following a very successful career in karting at the highest level, Josh Price has taken the next step and progressed into the fiercely competitive British Touring Cars Championship.

The speed demon will be competing in the last three rounds of the Renault Clio Cup 2015 – becoming the youngest ever competitor in this event.

Josh is the current International Open Champion in the Senior Rotax Class and was the 2013 Kartmasters champion.

Besides winning numerous British Super One races, Josh was outstanding in European racing where he clocked 24 pole positions from 30 races. He is currently ranked sixth in the British Super One Championship.

Josh is joining the highly regarded Team Pyro who are currently leading the Renault Clio Cup standings; the youngster becomes the third member of that team and he will make his race debut at the Rockingham Race Circuit this weekend, followed by the last two races at Silverstone on September 26 and 27, and Brands Hatch on October 10 and 11.

Josh has sponsorship for the remainder of the season: RCL (Rolfe Contracting Ltd), VSL Group and Maztech Precision Engineering. He turns 17 in December and attends Cavendish School, who have supported him throughout his racing career
