30 single seaters to line up for 2005
Renault Sport announce the official team list taking part in the World Series Renault 2005. After examining requests from a total of 27 teams, the final line-up features fifteen teams representing seven nationalities.
With a list of 27 teams and potentially over 54 cars on the starting grid, Renault Sport has had far from an easy job making the final team selection for the 2005 season.
"We've given careful consideration to each request, but in line with our commitments from the outset, we've given the priority to teams competing in the Eurocup Formula Renault V6 and World Series by Nissan championships in 2004, to assign the fourteen places available. All these teams met the selection criteria, both during the pre-enrolment in July and by confirming purchase of two single seaters by November 2. However, with the agreement of the fourteen pre-enrolled teams, we have been able to include a fifteenth team from the World Series by Nissan", summed up Jean-Paul Mari, Renault Sport Technologies' Motor Sport and Communications director. "The appeal of our championship is testimony to the pertinence of the choices we've made and I'd really like to sincerely thank the teams from F3000, F3 Euro Series and Euro F3000 who've put in applications".
So there will be thirty single seaters lining up on the starting grid in Zolder next April to get the ball rolling for the 2005 season. And one thing's for sure, the field won't be short on quality: "We're deeply impressed by the teams' determination to make sure World Series 2005 is going to be one of the most professional championships out there."
