Donington: World Series by Renault
8 May 2006

The Donington round of Renault's World Series is set for 9 and 10 September. Tickets are free and with 40,000 requests already received, the crowd looks set to break last year's record of 50,000 spectators.

They will be watching a demonstration by the car that won last year's F1 World Champtionship, the R25, which will also be parked in the pit lane for all to inspect.

A busy race programme takes place on both days, with rounds of Formula Renault 3.5 and 2.0, the Eurocup Mégane Trophy silhouette racer series, Formula Renault UK with Michelin (whose ex-racers include Kimi Raikkonen) and the Clio Cup.

There will also be historic Renault racers in action, including a Tour de Corse-winning Renault 5 Turbo and a Le Mans-winning Alpine A442. In addition, an owners' parade of 4CVs, Dauphines and R8s.

An aerial display by the Tiger Airways display team and a free fun fair complete the picture. Go to www.worldseriesbyrenault.com to request tickets.

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
