Paul Ricard

The Circuit Paul Ricard provides the venue for round six of the 2013 World Series by Renault season. The meeting at Le Castellet promises to be quite a spectacle too, with championship titles still up for grabs in Formula Renault 3.5 Series, Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, Eurocup Megane Trophy and Eurocup Clio, as Renault Sport Technologies’ Fast, Free and Fun motorsport series revs up for another exciting finale. Off the track there will be plenty to keep the fans entertained in the Renault Village, while David Coulthard is the man in the hotseat in the Formula One demo drives. The weekend’s racing also features the final round of the European Le Mans Series.

World Series by Renault has attracted over five million spectators since its inception in 2005, with more to come next weekend at the Circuit Paul Ricard. The famous track is hosting a WSR meeting for the third year running and will be laying on a superb programme that is sure to thrill race-goers.

Situated on a plateau near the village of Le Castellet, the Circuit Paul Ricard staged the French Formula One Grand Prix 14 times between 1971 and 1990. A fast-flowing, technical circuit, it will pose a unique test for the drivers in World Series by Renault’s four categories, not to mention those contesting the final round of this season’s European Le Mans Series, which will see Signatech-Alpine and TDS Racing go head-to-head for the championship title.

Last year’s WSR meeting attracted a crowd of more than 70,000 to the circuit, and the 2013 event promises to be a high-quality affair once again. Among the guests of honour expected to grace the weekend are Alain Prost, Charles Pic and David Coulthard, who will be taking to the track in the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 Show. Fans will also have the chance to see the Lotus F1 Team car in the flesh as well as the brand new Spark-Renault SRT_01E, soon to be used in FIA Formula E.

Joining the now-traditional Renault Classic Show and Renault Sport Show on the programme will be the Patrouille de France aerobatic team and the BMX Show, while the Renault Village will also have plenty of free fun and games lined up, with the Time Tunnel, the Pit Stop Challenge and the Renault Clio Cup simulators taking centre stage.

The weekend’s two Formula Renault 3.5 Series races will be broadcast live on Eurosport International and Eurosport France, with the entire meeting being streamed live on the Eurosport Player.
