Wonder if the new Megane rs will be at one of the UK dates so we can see it before you can actually get your hands on one?

Bilster Berg ... had to gooooogle it as I've never heard of it. Way up Norff near the flatlands and probably 6 hours away from me.
Red Bull ring .. a bit closer, way over in eastern Austria near the borders to the East and probably just over 4 hours away.
Definitely two for me to think about.

Are there going to be any UK track days this year?

I fear with Jeremy leaving there wont be much enthusiasm in organising them anymore.

I did wonder the same Dave. However I would assume Jeremy had already set things in place before going but maybe next year is going to be suck it and see.

It's a great shame the UK has no track days. I was actually thinking of driving down to one.

Do you we know if there will be some trackdays organised this year in the UK?

Went to Bedford (evening event) a couple of times and it was so much fun...
Would love to have a go again.

God knows at the moment nothing on here so far. Be nice if someone from Renault could give some information one way or the other. People probably becoming inpatient with lack of info on this topic.

Last year nothing was announced until Mid March, end of Feb in 2016 so I guess there is still just about time.

JT did indicate to me before his departure that there would be UK track days in 2018 - never said how many or where though.
Guess it depends on whether he had already done some of the legwork and more importantly whether anyone in RUK has been tasked with finalising the arrangements.

As said, it would be nice if someone could post on here to let us know.

@LUKE_RUK - you have previously been involved - care to share any info?.

If they go ahead I need to get to one. I’ve still not taken the Trophy on track.

I was really looking forward to it. Few years ago I did a F430 experience for 3 laps only but never tracked daily driven car before. Does the car needs servicing before or after tracking? I worry about having accident on track a lot, since everyone will be pushing their cars to the absolute limit. Insurance mitigate that I guess, but it kicks your premium up by a lot.

Do Renault normally have RS Clio that can be hired? I don't really mind paying extra just for the peace of mind.

You haven’t been able to hire a car on previous RS track days. You do get to have a go in one of their cars but only for 15 minutes or so.

Brilliant, thanks! I don't mind 15 minutes (3 laps I guess), better than nothing.

I wouldn’t worry about servicing it but make sure that all the liquids are at the correct level beforehand. Also, make sure that your pads and tyres have plenty of life in them. RS days are very well organised and not rammed with attendees so you can often be driving around the track with no one else nearby.
