The Club, the largest in the UK for R.S. enthusiasts, produced a stunning line-up of 10 Renault Sports for the show’s four days in Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre.
Included were a Clio 200 (supercharged), Clio 200 Cup, Clio V6, Clio Williams, early Nineties Clio Cup race car (1.8 16v), third and fourth generation Mégane Trophy-Rs, Mégane R26R, Mégane Trophy (‘Gen 4’) and a Clio 5.
“Autosport International is our favourite event of the year,” enthused Club co-founder Stevie Cunningham.
“With over 100,000 visitors it gives the club fantastic exposure at the start of the year and a chance to chat to new and current members.
“This year was our most successful year to date with a massive increase in new members.
“We would like to thank the members and Renault Sport UK who very kindly offered cars for what turned out to be a very impressive display of Renault Sport cars.
“Visitors to the stand were definitely impressed with the standard of cars on display.”
The Club is a reputation for organising some of the best events in Europe for R.S. enthusiasts.
Stevie added: “Plans are taking shape for some great events. We hope to announce a few dates soon – watch this space!”
Details will appear on the www.renaultsportclub.co.uk website (where info on becoming a member of the Club can also be found).
The Autosport Show display followed the Club’s recent participation in last November’s ‘meet’ for performance car communities at Caffeine & Machine, Warwickshire.
R.S. models, whose owners received a special invitation to the event by Renault UK, arrived in large numbers a – 140 in total – and were amongst the biggest draws.
Meanwhile the ClioSport.net community has confirmed the dates for its 2020 Clio Sport Festival ‘weekender’ – 17-19 July at Blyton Park Circuit, Lincolnshire.
The popular event – now in its tenth year – includes a main show plus track time for owners. Nor is it restricted to just Clios, in spite of its title, with all varieties of R.S. models welcome.
