Clivio Piccione joins RC Motorsport for the 2007 World Series by Renault season

23 year old Monegasque racing driver Clivio Piccione has joined the Italian RC Motorsport Team for the 2007 World Series by Renault Championship.

For the past two seasons Piccione has competed in the GP2 series with race winning success, however, for 2007 Piccione decided on a fresh challenge in the World Series by Renault. Piccione said, "We have a lot of interest from potential sponsors in Formula 1 and our discussions are ongoing for Formula 1 sponsorship. Driving in the World Series by Renault will allow me to undertake Grand Prix Friday testing as a third driver. A lot of drivers have moved from the World Series by Renault straight to F1 and I see this championship as an ideal stepping stone for my career especially with a team like RC Motorsport. As a team they have had a lot of success with some great drivers. They were also second in the championship last year, which proves the potential is already there to win the championship and I believe we can win together."

Francesco Ravera, co-founder of RC Motorsport is looking forward to the coming season. "I am pleased to have a driver of Clivio's calibre and experience join our team. With two seasons of GP2 behind him he should be well prepared for this championship and help the team make the final step towards winning the championship. "

The 2007 World Series by Renault Championship starts at the famous historic Monza circuit in Italy on the weekend of 14th / 15th April.
