2010 Renaultsport Track Day Calendar
If you’re lucky enough to own one of the many excellent vehicles in the Renaultsport range then you could be in for a fun time this summer, as Renault have announced their 2010 calendar of exclusive track day events that allow owners to explore the limits of their track-bred hot hatches.
The UK accounts for more sales the high-performance Renaultsport models than anywhere else in the world, and as a result the popular Renaultsport trackdays have been running since 2002 in the UK. This year’s trackday calendar, heavily subsidised by Renault, takes in two of the country’s best-known race circuits – Silverstone and Oulton Park. There’s also the chance to join Renaultsport’s annual jolly to foreign shores with a trip to the world-famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium or, for the more time-pressed thrill-seeker. Alternatively, if you’re pressed for time or money there are
evening track sessions available at Bedford Autodrome.
Improving driver ability is a crucial element of Renaultsport track days and every circuit will have experienced and trained instructors on hand offering personalised tips to improve car control.
As part of the programme, drivers have the chance to take the wheel of the latest high performance Renaultsport exotica for a few grin-inducing laps with the Twingo Renaultsport 133 Cup, the Clio Renaultsport 200 Cup or the new Mégane Renaultsport 250 Cup. They will also enjoy a “hot” lap in the car from the passenger seat with a qualified instructor at the wheel.
Speaking about the popularity of the trackdays, Phil York, Renault’s Marketing Director said, “Renaultsport trackdays are the ideal way of letting our customers share our passion for Renaultsport, as well as giving them the opportunity to realise the full potential of their cars in a safe and laid-back atmosphere. The tuition provides invaluable experience to improving skill levels.”
