ROME -- Peroni Promotion Incentive, as formerly already disclosed, confirms its will to steer for 2006 its attention toward V6 PRO SERIES, a championship, based on Formula Renault V6 cars, already proposed to teams and about which they already showed a considerable attention. Peroni Promotion Incentive project foresees the use of the Tatuus, former protagonist of Renault European Championship before World Series arrival, a car which has shown to be gifted with speed and technological qualities of the outmost relevance. The birth of this new Championship, backed by Renault Sport Technologies and Renault Italia, in 2006 will produce racing days under the "Lozenge" insignia on which V6 Pro Series, Formula Renault 2.0, Formula Junior 1.6 and Renault Clio Cup will come together.
The V6 Pro Series Tatuus, powered by a 3.500cc, 370hp Renault engine, was the car protagonist of Formula Renault V6 European Championship throughout the two-year period 2003/2004: its technical features induced Peroni Promotion Incentive to regard it as the flawless prosecution to this season undertaking with 3000 Pro Series which instead saw at the start Lola B99/50 cars. This championship will be therefore replaced by this new proposal since Peroni Promotion Incentive itself, both for technical and economic reasons, doesn't regard the already heralded Lola update kit further development as interesting. On the occasion of "World Series by Renault" finals scheduled at Monza from October 20th to 23rd, a meeting will take place on Friday 21st between Peroni Promotion Incentive and World Series and Formula Renault 2.0 teams in order to consider again the assents to this new class. Renault Sport Technologies and French Factory technical partners' support, all well-disposed in actively backing the new championship, will bring to a 300.000 euro prize money settlement.
V6 Pro Series will be open to a maximum of 20 cars and will be organized over a 7 week-ends calendar each one with two races, the first "short" of 30 minutes and the second "long" of 45 minutes with a mandatory tyre change. We are waiting for calendar settlement, but circuits will be Vallelunga, Misano, Adria, Mugello, Imola and Monza in Italy and Spa (Belgium) as transfer abroad. Each week-end will be entirely dedicated to Renault Championships and thence, as said, together with V6 Pro Series, we will see Formula Renault 2.0, Formula Junior 1.6 and Renault Clio Cup.
These are the teams which have already shown interest toward V6 Pro Series:
