Renault has announced the calendar for 2012. It will offer to enthusiasts a lot of ways to sharpen up their driving skills by booking on to one of this year's exclusive trackday events at world famous circuits like Silverstone and Brand Hatch.

The popular events give participants the opportunity to drive their own award-winning Renaultsport machine on a race track and receive expert tuition with the emphasis on improving driving technique.

These trackdays are the ultimate for all Renaultsport enthusiasts, with professional instructors on-hand to listen to your views and questions and share their tips, plus they can get the most out of their high-performance car without the fear of speed cameras and traffic jams.

"Our trackdays are the ideal way of letting our customers share our passion for Renaultsport, as well as giving them the opportunity to realise the full potential of their cars in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. The tuition provides invaluable experience to improving skill levels.", said Thierry Sybord, Renault UK's Managing Director said.

At each event, owners will be able to try the latest Renaultsport models with the new Twingo Renaultsport 133, Clio Renaultsport 200 Cup and Mégane Renaultsport 265 Cup.  At Silverstone, you can even hire a Clio or Mégane Renaultsport to use on track.

Prices for the trackdays, which have been running for 10 years, are subsidised by Renault UK to help participants to improve their driving skills, and additional instruction on each of the days can be purchased for just £10. First time and experienced trackday drivers are all welcome at each of the prestigious venues.
