See you at Estoril on October 20-21!

Carrying on where the WSR had left off in Zolder, the Nurburgring meeting was yet another popular success, with 110,000 spectators in attendance over the two days. Although the World Series teams will be shortly en route for Monaco, the Eurocup competitors have time to spruce up their machines before the Budapest round.

Estoril to replace Istanbul
Initially scheduled for June 23-24, the Istanbul meeting has been replaced by one to be held at Estoril on October 20-21, just a week before the season's final round in Barcelona. The Portuguese circuit is a WSR veteran, having already been the venue for the penultimate meeting of the 2005 season.

110,000 spectators at the Nurburgring
With a massive 57% increase on last year's attendance, the big crowds at the German round confirmed that the World Series by Renault has secured its place as an unmissable event in the world of motorsport. 30,000 fans on the Saturday and 80,000 on the Sunday took advantage of the spring weather to enjoy the 100% Renault races and attractions.

Off to Monaco for the World Series
For the third successive year, the World Series Formula Renault 3.5 is to be part of the Monaco GP meeting. The drivers will have a 40-minute free practice session (Thursday, May 24 at 8:30am), two 20-minute qualifying sessions (Saturday, May 26 at 9am) and a 25-lap race (Sunday, May 27 at 11a:15m). Unbeaten at the track thanks to wins in 2005 & 2006 by Montanari and Maldonado, Draco Racing will hope to notch up its first 2007 win in the Principality.

Aleshin to race in GP2 at Barcelona
After suffering an injury in a crash at Bahrain, Michael Ammermuller will be unable to take part in the GP2 races in Barcelona. The 2005 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 runner-up will be replaced by the Russian Mikhail Aleshin, who is currently lying fourth in World Series Formula Renault 3.5 championship.

Formula Renault 2.0 in action at Vallelunga and Dijon
A week after the Nurburgring round, the Italian and French Formula Renault 2.0 championship competitors will return to racing this weekend. Two good opportunities to check the progress of the drivers and teams, bearing in mind that the NEC (North European Cup) does not get underway until the end of May, in Zandvoort.
