Present and making its debut appearance in the UK will be Renaultsport’s dramatic new R.S.01 and the Renault UK Clio Cup race car.
The R.S.01 boasts a 3.8-litre V6 twin-turbo engine producing over 500hp. It will continue the long line of Renaultsport’s European-based single-make race categories – its own Renaultsport Trophy – as part of nine World Series by Renault events across Europe in 2015. These include Silverstone, UK on the weekend of Sat 29/Sun 30 Aug.
Similarly the Clio Cup is the latest in Renault UK’s single model race categories that date back to leaning, squealing Renault 5 TSs in the mid-70s. In 2015 it will star once more as the most exciting supporting category to the Dunlop British Touring Car Championship with 18 rounds held at nine BTCC events in front of Britain’s biggest race day crowds and an ever increasing live ITV4 audience.
Also on display at ASI will be the formidable Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy-R, the record holder of the fastest lap for a front-wheel drive production car at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Accredited ASI Media are welcome to visit our stand to meet the people behind the UK Clio Cup and some of the 20-plus team owners and drivers already committed to 2015’s grid, plus of course photograph/film our race cars. We may even let some of you sit in them for size…
We very much look forward to seeing you at ASI and trackside in 2015!
