The World Series By Renault event is a celebration of all things Renault with highly competitive on track action from Formula Renault 3.5, a championship which has produced numerous Formula One stars such as the current World Champion Sebastian Vettel and Robert Kubica. Also in action were the European and UK Formula Renault 2.0 Championships, the Megane Trophy and Clio Cup.

The 100, 000 strong crowd were also treated to flying laps and donuts from the latest Lotus Renault F1 car driven by the newly crowned GP2 champion Roman Grosjean.

Off track there was plenty to see and do in the Renault village situated within the middle of the circuit. To help promote the Renault After Sales brands and products the Formula 4 team were invited to give several presentations, assist Renault staff and talk about their experiences with event visitors. Also in attendance at the event was the car which always drew in a large crowd throughout the weekend, with many people wanting to have their photo taken with it.

Swansea Metropolitan University is one of the leading motorsport universities and can lay claim to the earliest formed motorsport engineering degree in 1998 and over the course of the two days their were many enquires from potential students about the Motorsport Management and Engineering courses offered by the university.

Head Of Management And Operations Ben Buesnel commented upon the event:

‘With over 100,000 people in attendance, the event created an excellent footfall to promote our supporters, the team and the university. The presentations were well received and being able to start the car and let the audience hear the acoustic feast   was a big draw and put many smiles upon faces young and old.

The team now look forward to travelling back to Silverstone next weekend to contest the latest round of the Formula 4 Championship on the National circuit’.
