For more than 115 years, motorsport has constituted an integral element of Renault’s DNA. In Formula One, Renault has started more than 600 races and clinched 11 Drivers’ titles, 12 Constructors’ crowns and no fewer than 168 grand prix victories.
In 2016, spurred on by this illustrious track record and eager to reaffirm its commitment to the sport, Renault launched an all-new entity encompassing all the brand’s motorsport activities – Renault Sport Racing – and another to manage the development and sale of the Renault Sport Cars portfolio.
The key objectives were to promote the company’s passion for motorsport to a wider audience while maximising the technological synergies between its racing and rally and its road-going sports models. As of February 2016, Renault Sport Racing controls and co-ordinates all of Renault's motorsport activities, from Formula One and Formula E, to the Renault Sport Series. Now under the same overall management to cover the staff and facilities at the company's two key sites at Viry Châtillon in France and Enstone in the UK, Renault Sport Racing firmly reinforces Renault's commitment to the motorsport.
