Formula Renault is a class of formula racing founded in 1971. It is popular in Europe and elsewhere. Regarded as an entry-level series to motor racing, it is a respected series where drivers can learn advanced racecraft before moving on to Formula Three, World Series by Renault, GP2 or Formula One.
Renault now backs several one-make single-seater series; it is essential to distinguish Formula Renault 1.6, Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Renault 3.5. The GP2 Series is also powered by Renault-badged engines but is not considered part of the Renault driver development programme.
At the end of each racing season, Renault Sport give the opportunity to the best Formula Renault 2.0 drivers to try the 3.5L car at Circuit Paul Ricard.
Famous quotes containing the word formula:
“Beauty, like all other qualities presented to human experience, is relative; and the definition of it becomes unmeaning and useless in proportion to its abstractness. To define beauty not in the most abstract, but in the most concrete terms possible, not to find a universal formula for it, but the formula which expresses most adequately this or that special manifestation of it, is the aim of the true student of aesthetics.”
—Walter Pater (18391894)
