Hi all, recently purchased a clio 172 for the track, stripped out, roll cage, buckets and harnesses, lowered, 8 alloys (4 road tyres and 4 stickys) cant wait to start using it.

Just needs a decent steering wheel to finish it off.
Also thinking of having it on the road as its mot'd

Thoughts and opinions welcome 👍🏻

Nice car. I run a Meglio, not stripped as much as yours, and doing long distances, I use earplugs sometimes. Yours, I am sure, will be noisier.Personally, I would use it as a road car as well.

Yeah its got a big silly oval back box on it that will need to come off, just waiting on the book to come through to get it taxed then i can start using it 😬

What model meglio do you have?

Welcome aboard. Putting a few road miles on it would be a good shake down. You don't want to book a track day and have the car break down early on!
I spotted a vxr burg yesterday, first one I've seen for ages!

Welcome to the club mate. Be interesting to see what direction you go with this.
Forward hopefully 😂 joking aside, ive been a passenger round the track once and as soon as i got off the track i started shopping for a clio, never thought id enjoy it as i prefer a "show car" but i honestly cant wait

Welcome, looks a decent little base to work from. Enjoy the cheap repairs and chuckability on track.

Not in my Clio no but had a few passenger laps at csf and can confirm they go around well! I've too much mechanical sympathy to track my car😂.
Yeah I've seen lots of them, couldn't believe how good they were

Standard wheel works okay tbh, no reason to stop a trackday anyway. Ran my daily on track with it
Yeah it would be fine, just not in the best condition, a nice steering wheel would fnish it off imo

Need a new steering wheel in mine, got the standard one with a manual rack, it's like driving a bus and I had mega wrist pump when on track🤣

That being said I should probably put my EPAS on because driving the Megane is a piece of piss
