Dear Renault Sport Fan!

We’re writing to inform you that we will be moving all our Renault Sport cars and motorsport content on the renaultsport.co.uk across to our main website, renault.co.uk, on 31 March 2020. From then on, you’ll be able to find all things Renault in one place.

The Forum and Ask The Expert features will not move across to the new website. These have been popular destinations for Renault Sport fans over the years and we are proud to have been a leader in terms of providing ways for our most passionate customers to discuss all things Renault Sport – with us and with each other. The growth in social media in recent years has provided multiple new ways for fans to share and discuss all things R.S. and we would love to hear from you on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Should you have any queries about your Renault vehicle, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you.

Pump up the volume! Take a unique ride with 110 years of Renault Sport’s greatest Cars

This is one of the most exciting videos we’ve seen all year – go on board with a 360-degree ‘tilt and view’ camera with some of Renault Sport’s greatest creations and noises at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

  • 360 videos from Goodwood 2.jpg (1)


There are in fact four videos to choose from:


Simply click and drag your cursor around the screen for endless mind-boggling angles.

Actually make that five videos if you want to include this one – a ‘quick clips collage’ of all the above plus more in-car footage from the chug-chugging-along 13-litre Type AK (winner of the 770-mile French Grand Prix in 1906) to Renault’s first F1 machine, the RS01 from 1977.

Ragnotti and 5 Maxi Turbo are perhaps our favourite purely for the bonnet-mounted camera – use your cursor to spin round to see back up the car’s nose to the screen and an occasional glimpse of Eighties Monte Carlo Rally winner Ragnotti’s hands at the wheel.

Certainly the noise emanating through the screen from that 1.4-litre 345hp turbocharged engine is enough to make any motorsport fan rush out and by a pair of very expensive headphones!

RS01, with ex-Renault F1 race-winner Rene Arnoux in control, comes a very close second however… As does current Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Jolyon Palmer laying down black lines of rubber in newer F1 machinery (complete with screaming 3.5 V8 Renault engine) for a highly appreciative crowd.

The 275hp Clio Renaultsport R.S.16 also causes the edges of the mouth to curl up towards the end of its run when, guess what, it appears to catch something. Rather quickly… It wasn’t meant to do that.

Whichever your favourite, each is a video to savour and encapsulates the breadth of Renault Sport’s innovative motor sport thinking and prowess for over more than a century.
