Formula Renault UK - The Championship

¤ Formula Renault UK is established as the country's leading single-seater championship, launching the Formula One racing careers of Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Räikkönen and Heikki Kovalainen.

¤ The Championship enjoys a high level of exposure due to its place on the support package of the British Touring Car Championship, leading to television coverage on the ITV network. Two races are also held at World Series by Renault, which attracted a record-breaking crowd of 135,000 in 2009, making it the best attended one-make single-seater series.

¤ The 2010 season sees the introduction of a brand new car featuring a lighter chassis, more powerful engine (2.0-litre, 210bhp) and for the first time will see drivers using a seven-speed sequential gearbox.
