Formula Renault

From the age of 16, young and hopeful motorsport drivers are faced with a very competitive world. They must understand how a racing car works to enhance its performance and learn to manage the pressure of a race. In Formula Renault, they quickly learn the basics of their profession at the wheel of single-seaters powered by 2.0 L 16-valve engines delivering some 210 hp with a 7-speed sequential gearbox and steering wheel controls.

The old saying that it takes one season to learn and another season to win sounds a bit out-of-date now. Founded 45 years ago, Formula Renault has always kept up to speed, ready to meet the changing needs of budding drivers from kart racing or other introductory disciplines. Since the average age of beginning a career in Formula One has fallen sharply in recent years, the length of the training was reduced accordingly. A real single-seater driving school, Formula Renault very quickly reveals or confirms the talent of young drivers.
