It's a fifth different car in four seasons for the 2010 Clio Cup champion. This year Newsham's out in an ex-Motorbase Ford Focus having previously raced a BMW. a SEAT Leon, a Toyota Avensis and a Vauxhall Vectra.

The Welsh-born driver, who now lives in Scotland, finished tenth in the championship last season, with a best result of fourth, and will be hoping to return to the podium that he visited six times the previous year.
