According to Motorsport news this week there is a potential return for Renault in to the BTCC
With a pair of Meganes.
There may also be a mock up at the next round at Rockingham.
Any more info Jeremy?

Still even without a factory team it's excellent news, just hope they do better than the lacklustre attempt with the Golf by AmD. It's the kind of advertising Renault need and should be supporting imo

Its been far too long without a Renault in the BTCC so be good to see even it its an independant team.

It needs some sort of backing by R.S. if just technical support. Ive been waiting for ages for Renault to come back to the BTCC and have a team to probably support Big Smile

Oddly enough, i was watching bttc the other day and couldn't help but think of the green laguna's and how Renault was no longer involved.

Don't they have to be based on road cars? Surely it'll be based on the MK3 RS. FWD etc

The Shell does, all the parts inside are control parts. They can build there own engine if they want though. Only Handa and the Fords have custom engine the rest of the grid are NGTC Engine

since when ? All engines are NGTC spec but it just depends on what the full chassis are.
Most are running full NGTC chassis (shared suspension, braking and tyres) or S2000 competing in the jack sears trophy altho reports say next year there will be no s2000 spec at all.
The engines have been NGTC spec for a whuile since Plato spat dummy out in NA days.
Quite a few use the engine supplied by Toca but several also use different supplied ones.
Rob Austin recently switched back to Toca purely because they had more data saying it was consistently more inferior so they allow it to run at a higher boost level to compensate - seemed to work well at Knockhill !
