As the Circuits seethe in bated breath for the frenzy of speed at this year’s F1, Renault forges a new chapter in its already compelling history with Renault Sport Racing and Renault Sport Cars.
Dating back to 115 years, Renault’s racing pedegree has since embraced the many challenges of motorsport with aplomb. The company very early on recognized the value of its competitive activities for both technical and commercial gain. For instance, in 1992 Renault won the championship as an engine partner to Williams with the most technically advanced car ever seen in F1. Today, the heir to this fruitful relationship is the Clio Williams, still held as the best hot hatch of a generation. Whether as a partner, engine supplier or team owner, Renault has always remained loyal to motorsport. It’s a passion that has driven the company to 12 Constructors’ titles, 11 Drivers’ titles and 168 Grand Prix wins overall. No other volume manufacturer has enjoyed such success or continuous commitment.
This illustrious past has only served to stoke hunger for more. The company’s F1 program forms the core of the new entity Renault Sport Racing encompassing all competitive racing programs from Formula E, Formula Renault 2.0 and customer racing. The evolution of Renault Sport Technologies to Renault Sport Cars denotes the development and business plans of the company’s sport car portfolio.
In fact, the name Renault Sport Formula One Team underscores the crossover between F1 and road cars, and the importance the company places on this aspect. Moreover, brands within the Renault-Nissan Alliance will be able to use the new team as a launch pad for their own strategic ventures. Infiniti will join as a technical partner for the energy recovery system, while Nissan will enjoy a greater involvement and benefit from the excellent racing facility at Viry-Châtillon, France.
