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 to request tickets.

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
