Formula Renault 3.5

With the aim of giving teams and drivers every chance to hit the ground running, Renault Sport Technologies is organising nine collective testing sessions ahead of the new World Series by Renault season.

On 22-23 February, some 40 days before the cars take their places on the opening start grid of the season, the Formula Renault 3.5 Series field will be testing their set-ups at Motorland Aragon. A second two-day session will take place a fortnight later at Paul Ricard (8-9 March), while the series will have a third and final get-together on 19-20 March at the Circuit de Catalunya, only 17 days before battle commences at Monza.

The men at the wheel of the new Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 have four sessions to look forward to, the first of them coming at Motorland Aragon on 24-25 February, followed by dates at Paul Ricard (5-6 March), Catalunya (16-17 March) and the Red Bull Ring (26-27 March).

Meanwhile, the competitors in the Eurocup Megane Trophy and Eurocup Clio each have two days of testing at Motorland Aragon. The Megane Trophy boys will step out on 6-7 April, with the new Clio Cup being put through its paces at the Spanish track on 20-21 April.

All nine sessions are taking place at tracks featuring on the 2013 World Series by Renault race calendar.
