Taking to the Goodwood Hillclimb will be half-a-dozen significant competition Renaults in action, with another four of the French marque’s current model range also in action on Thursday as part of its Moving Motor Show activities.
Renault will be celebrating 40-years since its first Formula 1 Grand Prix. As part of these celebrations, the ‘game-changing’ 1977 Renault R.S. 01 F1 will be in action – the world’s very first turbocharged F1 car. Bringing Renault’s grand prix history right up-to-date will be the R.S. 17 F1 car, with the R.S. 16 F1 car – signifying Renault’s return to Formula 1 as a constructor – due to be driven by its Team drivers Jolyon Palmer and third-driver Sergey Sirotkin, as well as former-F1 star Robert Kubica.
The 2017 Renault e-dams Formula E car will join the R.S. 17 on the marque’s exhibition stand, fresh from its recent victory at the Berlin ePrix, along with the 2027 Renault Sport Vision Concept and the 2005 F1 R25 World Championship grand prix car.
