Some 50 cars – including eight Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy-Rs – were on track during the day. Owners of these cars all have free access to Renault UK’s trackdays in Britain this year…
Meanwhile other models included Renaultsport Clio and Mégane new and old, including a rare mid-90s Clio ‘Williams’. Several Clios which race in club-level competition added to the variety.
Renaultsport owners have three more opportunities to sample an exclusive trackday. These are
Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium 1 June
Bedford Autodrome, UK 5 June
Oulton Park, UK 25 August
For more details and to book places see the www.renaultsport.co.uk website’s homepage.
Each trackday also allows drivers to book a session with a qualified Renaultsport instructor in either a Clio Renaultsport 200 EDC or Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy-R.
At Spa-Francorchamps, there is also an option to drive the Renault UK Clio Cup race car which races in its own single-model championship at British Touring Car events live on ITV4.
Renault UK’s Communications Director Jeremy Townsend said: “The Renaultsport community is looking fantastic if Brands Hatch is anything to go by and with the warmer months still to come we anticipate even stronger turn-outs at our remaining three trackdays.
“The opportunity to cross the Channel, drive through some stunning countryside and then drive the legendary Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit is not to be missed if possible.
“Bedford Autodrome is a purpose-built facility for putting cars through their paces and Oulton Park remains one of the UK’s most exciting driving challenges. Both venues are also immaculately maintained.”
