I look after the Renaultsport road car activities for the UK. I've been with Renault for over 10 years and have been in the industry for 25 years (gulp..). We hold regular trackdays, factory visits and events where all Renaultsport owners can get together and where there's a range of cars to try. I look forward to seeing you at the next one.

clutch

clutch

With hydraulic clutch issues the most orthodox way to approach the problem would be to bleed the system and understand if that delivers a temporary improvement? Also for it to only be an issue on the motorway possibly indicates a result of heat into the slave cylinder which is not apparent when in town and the system is being constantly used.

New Twingo GT

Do we know whether the new Twingo GT will be available with the EDC automatic transmission in the UK? And if so will it be 6-speed as opposed to the 5-speed manual? I understand the option is now available abroad. Would make a great combination!
