This weekend, as part of the Gran Premio di Cagliari, the Renault F1 Team will demonstrate the race-winning R23B around the streets of the Sardinian capital.

The Renault F1 Team roadshow rolls on! First, Fernando Alonso wowed the crowds last May on Madrid's Paseo de la Castellana. Just one week after his dramatic second-place finish in the Spanish Grand Prix, over 100,000 fans turned out to watch the new national hero demonstrate his race-car on one of the capital's main avenues.

Then in October, one week after the season-ending Japanese race, the cars were in action again. Running on a specially constructed street circuit in the shadow of Moscow's impressive university, Renault became the first team ever to run a Formula 1 car on Russian soil: the R23B attracted fifty thousand intrigued spectators to this unique event.

This weekend, the team will conduct its third road demonstration run of the year as the R23B takes to the streets of Sardinia. Enthusiasts attending the second Gran Premio di Cagliari on Saturday and Sunday will have a treat in store: as part of the lunchtime activities, the Renault F1 R23B will be unleashed for a number of high-speed runs around the tortuous street circuit, including full demonstration pit-stops and practice starts.
