Renault F1 Team is delighted to confirm a second edition of the hugely popular pre-French Grand Prix roadshow programme. The team will bring the excitement and passion of Formula 1 to 15 cities across France, starting with two exceptional demonstration runs at Disneyland Paris on 6 and 7 April. The roadshow will be the curtain-raiser to the French Grand Prix, which will be held at Le Castellet on 23 June.
The Renault-powered E20 Formula 1 car will then tour the country, taking in cities in the north and south.
E20 driving duties will be split across Renault F1 Team’s race driver line-up of Daniel Ricciardo, Nico Hülkenberg, Sergey Sirotkin and Jack Aitken, while the Renault Sport Academy drivers will also take turns behind the wheel. Adding to the excitement, Renault’s breath-taking GT racer, the Renault R.S.01, will join the E20 on the roads, while the public will have the opportunity to watch live pit stops, try out driving simulators and Batak pro challenges and meet the Renault drivers.
Cyril Abiteboul, managing director of Renault Sport Racing: “We are pleased to join forces with the French Grand Prix to bring the excitement of Formula 1 to the French public for a second consecutive year. The success of the roadshow last year was unprecedented, with thousands of people attending each demo run. This year with a larger programme even more people can discover and experience the sport for themselves.”
Philippe Buros, commercial director France, Groupe Renault: “By participating in this national roadshow programme, we offer our dealerships and their clients privileged access to exceptional events. It makes our commitment to Formula 1 meaningful and will enable as many people as possible to experience it first-hand. It is also an opportunity for us to show our support to the French Grand Prix.”
