How many cars are generally on track at these renaultsport events? Also what are the general overtaking rules? Is it on straights only? Or is it anything goes? Braking zones, corners etc?Wanting to do a track day this year(was hoping for Origine RS at Goodwood). Never been to a renaultsport track day so don't know what the crack is. Would of gone to check out brands this year(closest to me) but not happening this year. Thinking of doing Rockingham. Would love to do Anglesey but bit early in the year and far to get to for me. Any feed back would be greatly received.

The number of cars on track depends on the size of the circuit, but RS have a maximum number of cars per event that is far lower that other track day organisers in my experience.

Overtaking is only on the straights and all the cars are very similar in horse power, which means that you don't have to spend most of the time looking in your mirrors to see what the 600BHP car is doing that is looming in your mirrors.

Overtaking on straights only as Georgeski says.

Driving standards on British Renaultsport days are generally the very best I see. Everyone is very friendly with very few red flags.

Yep, agree about the driving standard.

Could not have summed it up any better than the others already have.
I've said about the speed differential several times and it really does mean you can look forward instead of behind. Makes the day so much more enjoyable and you get in an all important rythem.
My first one was Spa, and the British ones are even better for standards.

The renaultsport days I've been to are the best I've been to ,
Great driving and the best organising I've seen
Open pit lane , Getting to try out the new models and getting instruction at the same time makes the day very enjoyable
