Budapest

The closing stretch of the 2013 World Series by Renault season starts next weekend in Hungary. An essential fixture on Renault Sport’s Fast, Free and Fun calendar, the Hungaroring is set to welcome the Formula Renault 3.5 Series, Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and Eurocup Megane Trophy for the seventh year running, with a host of other attractions also on the card, including the latest round of the European Le Mans Series.

One of the high points of the World Series by Renault season, the Hungarian meeting is hugely popular with fans and presents a stiff technical challenge for drivers in all three categories. Now an essential component of the Formula One circuit, the Budapest track has been hosting the Hungarian Grand Prix since 1986 and gives WSR’s young guns a taste of what is expected at the highest rung of the motorsport ladder.

WSR’s Hungarian leg is an ongoing success story and last year’s meeting attracted no fewer than 100,000 spectators, who were treated to some thrilling races that went a long way to deciding where the silverware went at the end of the season. The 2013 meet looks like being no exception, and with Sebastien Buemi also at the wheel in the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 Show, it promises to be quite a weekend.

In addition to the Renault Classic Show and Renault Sport Show, Renault Trucks will be serving up its own unique brand of entertainment at the Hungaroring, while there is a free world of fun waiting for fans at the Renault Village. From the Time Tunnel and the Michelin and Renault simulators to the Pit Stop Challenge, there will be plenty to keep them busy. And just as it did in Austria, the World Series by Renault will play host to another round of the European Le Mans Series.

Both Formula Renault 3.5 Series races will be broadcast live on Eurosport International and Eurosport 2, while the whole meeting will be shown online on the Eurosport Player.
