    Default Trip to Zolder, Renault World Series

    Hi All,

    Had a ball today. Did a 500km round trip to Zolder raceway in Belgium to go to
    the Renault World Series. Basically a day where they bring some F1 cars, the Formula Renault 1.6, Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Renault 3.5, and Mégane Trophy series and some static displays etc.

    First thing.. 3.5l Renault/Nissan engine in an open wheeler or Mégane Trophy is LOUD.. possibly louder than the F1 car, though hard to say as there were always a few Trophies on the track vs Frank Montagny doing laps and burnouts in a 2004 Renault F1 car. The Mégane Trophy looks wild on the track and .. cant get over that noise.

    What else...
    Bosch ESP display
    Renault crash test car (Laguna)
    Skidpan demos of safety equipment, ESP etc in Méganes and Clios
    Renault History Collection (most did a few laps of the track in the afternoon)
    - Louis' Type A from 1898, being driven around
    - 1902 No 147 Paris Madrid Type K race car
    - 40CV race car
    - 4CV rally car
    - Dauphine Gordini
    - Jean Ragnotti's Clio 16s rally car
    - Jean Ragnotti's R5 Alpine rally car
    - Jean Ragnotti's R5 Turbo 1 rally car
    - 4wd R20 Paris-Dakar rally car
    - A Villeneuve Williams F1
    - A Schumacher Benetton F1
    - Arnoux's No 15 Renault F1
    - Nervasport
    - 2 x Renault Alpine Le Mans cars of Jabouille and Pironi

    Display of some Clio Cup Sports and v6 Trophys

    Display of various Renaults from the public:
    3 (only one I've ever seen, unlikely to see another)
    4s
    4CVs
    5 Turbo 1, 2s, Alpines, GT Turbos
    8, 8 gordinis (incl from 1969 Gordini cup)
    10, and 10 Major
    12G
    16 (early and late model)
    19 16s
    21 Turbos
    Dauphine
    Frégate
    Colorale Prairie
    Clio Williams, Sport mk1&2, v6 mk1&2 (about 15 or more)
    Alpine A106, 20x A110 (yes.. 20!), and heaps of A310s, A610s, GTAs
    6 Spiders (5 yellow, 1 silver)

    I'll get some photos online ASAP.
