Aaron Kwok is leading the series and has been invited to test with Renault Megane Trophy in Spain

After two successful invitational races and two points races, Clio Cup China, the new series that FRD brought from Europe, has only one race left for the 2009 season. The series leader Aaron Kwok has been invited by Renault Sport Technologies (RST) to test an advanced touring car model 'Megane Trophy' with a professional team in Motorland Aragon, Spain. FRD is now getting in touch with Mr. Kwok to check the schedule and feasibility of this test.

As a new member of the 'World Series by Renault', this year the Clio Cup China series is enjoying its first ever successful season in China. RST, the organizational and technical core of the Renault series, has been devoted to select drivers with good potential from various Renault series. The winter/fall test is an annual occurrence, during which RST invites top Renault drivers from all over the world and provides them with the opportunity to test very powerful vehicles with professional teams at higher levels. The Megane Trophy is a professional level race series which uses a race version of the Renault Megane street car, though with a considerably modified V4Y 3.5-litre V6 engine generating 360 bhp. With the powerful race-only V4Y V6, the Megane Trophy cars develop similar lap times as the famous Porsche GT3.
