Renaultsport R.S. 01 makes its track debut

Renault’s new Renaultsport R.S. 01 race car has completed its first laps in public. The appearance took place last weekend at Jerez, during the final World Series by Renault meeting of 2014.

Driving duties were entrusted to four-time Formula One champion Alain Prost, who unsurprisingly described the R.S. 01 as “magnificent”. Well, he was hardly likely to be critical…

The R.S. 01 has been created for next year’s inaugural Renaultsport Trophy championship. Built around a lightweight Dallara carbon fibre monocoque chassis, it’s powered by a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 engine that produces in excess of 500 horsepower (about 370 kW).

Deliveries to customer teams are expected to begin in March 2015.
