    R-Tech Welding Equipment Pre-Race Interview with Ben Davis

    R-Tech Welding Equipment is sponsoring Ben Davis at the Silverstone round of the UK Clio Cup. But how did this come about and 'Who is Ben Davis'?

    Ben approached us a couple of years ago regarding obtaining funding for sponsorship. Ben is a local lad from Ledbury and wanted local companies to sponsor him. He approached us as he knew of both our interest and supply in motorsport (we are petrolheads!)  After long discussions we agreed to get him to Silverstone.

    We caught up with Ben to get a bit of background on his career.

    Driver Stats:
    DOB: 30/03/1993
    Height: 5ft 8in
    Weight: 10st 5lb
    Favourite colour: RenaultSport liquid yellow
    Favourite circuit: Snetterton 300


    Q.How did you get into racing?

    Back in 2003, aged 10, at a simple kart track in southern Spain! My brother (two years older) and I both took to the track for the first time, minimal safety/rules/supervision, and were absolutely hooked from the outset. From then on, we looked at ways to do it competitively and I began a junior karting championship at Castle Combe aged 13

    Q.Tell us a bit about the car that you will be driving at Silverstone this year.

    It is a Renault Clio Cup (gen 4) race car, built from scratch as a race car (as opposed to converted road car) by RenaultSport in France. Each car comes direct from the factory and all parts are homologated and/or sealed to ensure performance parity. It uses a 1.6l turbo engine with around 225bhp. More impressive than that is the cornering and braking ability; full race suspension, very powerful diff, ‘paddleshift’ Sadev gearbox, Dunlop racing slick tyres and fully stripped out with roll cage etc. The actual car was the car used by last year’s championship challenger Ash Hand who won the most races in it in 2015.

    Q.Do you do this full time?
