The Formula Renault Championship  

Formula Renault UK is one of the world's most exciting junior single-seater championships, which has launched the careers of F1 stars Kimi Raikkonen, Antonio Pizzonia and Pedro de la Rosa.

The Formula Renault cars, designed by Milan-race car manufacturers Tatuus, are all identical, and capable of 0-100 mph in 4.8 seconds. The carbon fibre chassis is built by Italian firm ATR, who manufacture the Ferrari Formula One chassis. Renaultsport, which has committed itself to producing a car that far exceeds the FIA's safety requirements, have further developed the car.

Each Formula Renault race takes place in front of Britain's biggest motorsport crowds. In 2001, over 160,000 filed through the gates to watch the action. Renault UK's championship boasts the fastest lap times, with speeds reaching over 130 mph, in Britain's biggest travelling motorsport package - the British Touring Car Championship's TOCA Tour. In 2002, Renault's championships still support nine of the 10 TOCA Tour meetings, with additional races supporting British Formula 3 and European Truck racing.

With the exposure that came from Kimi Raikkonen jumping from the series
straight to Formula One, the Championship is more popular than ever.
