Much anticipated by competitors and public alike, World Series by Renault made its return to Silverstone. The legendary British circuit offered spectators a heart-stopping racing spectacle, including the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 Show, featuring Antonio Felix de Costa.


Formula Renault 3.5 Series leader, Oliver Rowland, also went on to victory, as did Tio Ellinas. Jack Aitken, Kevin Jörg and Anthoine Hubert who took the laurels in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, while Niccolò Nalio, Luciano Bacheta and Pieter Schothorst scored highly in the Renault Sport Trophy.


Jeremy Townsend, Renault UK Communications Director : “We have experienced many exciting times with World Series by Renault in the UK. Since the last UK round in 2011, we have been keen to see Silverstone return to the calendar because we are extremely fond of the event, so it was with great pleasure that Renault UK had the opportunity to return to the 100% Renault meeting.


As always, we included a large number of activities in the village for the whole family. It was an ideal opportunity to offer test drives in the whole range, including the Renault Twizy and Twingo as well as in the All-New Renault Kadjar, which was launched in the UK this month.


The many activities on offer were a big hit and made for a terrific weekend to be enjoyed by the whole family.”
