One of the highlights of the year for motoring enthusiasts, the Paris Motor Show (4-14 October) will be devoted to the world of motorsport on 9 October 2018, with a 100% Renault Sport day on the Renault stand.
On the stage entrusted to Renault Sport ambassador Margot Laffite, the day will include a special appearance from Nico Hülkenberg, Renault Sport Formula One Team driver, and Cyril Abiteboul, Renault Sport Racing Managing Director. The German driver will take part in an autograph-signing session, which already looks set to be extremely popular.
The brand new Mégane R.S. Trophy will be making its debut appearance at the Paris Motor Show, accompanied by our R.S. experts, including development driver Laurent Hurgon, the living legend that is Jean Ragnotti and Jean-Luc Fournier, author of the book "Renault Sport, l’esprit de la course au quotidien", which looks back at the designs and models produced at Les Ulis over the last few decades.
At the same time, purists will enjoy the exhibition spaces installed for the day: concept cars, F1 in Lego or a display celebrating 120 years of Renault in motorsport. The most daring visitors will be able to test their abilities on Batak (the reaction/hand-eye coordination training tool), The Crew 2 simulators or the Pit Stop Challenge, our virtual reality experience!
Lastly, Michel Vaillant will also be at the show, with writer Philippe Graton and artist Benjamin Beneteau. Benjamin Beneteau will also be running a drawing workshop before the release of "Macao", a new comic album featuring Sacha Fenestraz... A Renault Sport Academy driver!
