A bright future opens for the Renault Sport R.S. 01

26.11.2015: After the successful launch of the Renault Sport R.S. 01 with the initial order of 20 cars filled




After the successful launch of the Renault Sport R.S. 01 with the initial order of 20 cars filled, 2016 promises to be the year of confirmation for the latest creation from Ulis.



 Now, with one year under its belt, the Renault Sport Trophy will be reinforced for its second year in the world of motorsport by following essential values such as technical and sporting fairness, cost control and the relevance in accessing professional championships.



UNIQUE MOTOR RACING PRIZES




At the conclusion of the 2016 season, the winning driver in “PRO” will participate in the NISMO SUPER GT selection tests, as did Andrea Pizzitola this week. If the champion is not chosen, he will receive 200,000 € in cash.


In the “AM” class, the title winner will compete in the 2017 24-Hours of Le Mans in LM P2, or if he prefers, will receive 140,000€ to help make the move to “PRO” in 2017.


The top three teams at each meeting will receive award vouchers in the respective amounts of 10,000, 7,000 and 3,000 €.



SPORTING AND TECHNICAL STABILITY



The meeting format will continue to offer significant track time. Each of the six rounds will feature two 90-minute collective tests, two 20-minute qualifying session, a 70-minute plus one lap Endurance race and two 25-minute plus one lap Sprint races. Including the collective tests, the competitors will put in over 6,000 kilometres during the season.


On the technical side, the emphasis is on stability in order to remain affordable ahead of the 2016 season.


As for the competition aspect, it will be the same with the exception of the introduction of a balance of performance based on the results in each category. It will only concern the Prestige category. It should be noted that the point scoring will be identical with the drivers scoring their won points in the Endurance races without having to depend on the results of their team mates.



RENAULT SPORT R.S. 01 TO TAKE ON GT3



Established according to the suitable and homologated balance of performance, the GT3 kit is already available for the Renault Sport R.S01. Agreements have been made with the GT Tour and the VdeV Series without creating a conflict with the Renault Sport Trophy calendar.


The teams can also enter the 24H Series and the 12-Hours of Abu Dhabi. Meanwhile, Renault Sport Technologies continues its discussions with other promoters to expand the programmes of the race teams that purchased the Renault Sport R.S. 01.


Since being homologated, the Renault Sport R.S. 01 won in the Open Challenge category of the GT Tour at Circuit Paul Ricard, the Zandvoort 500 kilometres and took the pole in the 6 Hours of Rome.


Jean-Pascal Dauce, Renault Sport Technologies Motorsport Director : “The launch of the Renault Sport R.S. 01 and Renault Sport Trophy were a real challenge for both the teams and our teams at Ulis. We are proud to announce that the first 20 cars built found owners.


We were also successful in bringing a unique race car to market and a series that has already forged a strong reputation in little time. Now, we are following our market plan for their development. The Renault Sport R.S. 01 was born for Endurance and GT competition, it was logical to work towards exciting opportunities like GT3.


 Concerning the Renault Sport Trophy, we put the emphasis on stability while improving its qualities. We look forward to seeing who will follow Andrea Pizzitola, Dario Capitanio and David Fumanelli on a greatly renewed calendar !


We hope to have wonderful surprises to announce in the announcement of the list of pre-selected teams on December 15 !”
