Josh Cook engaged in a hard-fought duel with Mike Bushell for the 2014 Renault UK Clio Cup crown – winning more races but just missing out on the title in the Brands Hatch finale – which catapulted him onto the BTCC grid in a Power Maxed Racing Chevrolet Cruze the following year alongside experienced tin-top campaigner Dave Newsham.
A strong first season saw Cook claim seven top ten finishes and a podium at Rockingham – and scrap energetically for the lead in a lively race at Donington Park. That enabled him to prevail in the battle of the newcomers, exacting revenge on Clio sparring partner Bushell to lift the Jack Sears Trophy for top rookie.
Cook added two further rostrums in 2016 with the factory MG squad, but moves to Team Parker with Maximum Motorsport for 2017.
