Phil Glew secured the 2009 ELF Renault Clio Cup championship in style with a double win in the penultimate race meeting of the season at Rockingham, last weekend.

After dominating the season the 26-year-old was finally able to celebrate the title with two pole to flag wins in his
WD-40 and 3-IN-ONE professional sponsored Clio at the Northamptonshire circuit.

An emotional and ecstatic Glew shed a tear after winning and is now looking forward to moving up the motorsport career ladder.
He said: “This title is a dream come true and I can’t thank the team and sponsors enough for all their help throughout the season.

“I may have driven the car but the support of everyone, particularly my sponsors
WD-40 and 3-IN-ONE professional has been vital.”

In race one Glew started on pole knowing he needed a podium finish to claim the title and held off all challengers to claim his first flag to pole victory of the day, and with it the championship.

As the newly crowned 2009 ELF Renault Clio Cup champion Glew started from pole in race two, again leading to the chequered flag, claiming his tenth win of the season.

Glew added: “To win both the championship and my target of ten wins makes the day just perfect.

“I’ve been pushed all the way from my rivals but always managed to find that extra pace, mainly thanks to the way Team Pyro set the car up.
“The future is still undecided but I’m hoping my performances throughout the season will enable me to look at a seat in the 2010 British Touring Car Championship.”
