Formula Renault 2000

A legendary formula: Over five hundred Formula Renault 2000s have been sold to date! This formula is recognized as a benchmark across the world for the acquisition of single-seater racing skills. No fewer than thirteen national championships already exist, not only in Europe but also in Asia and South America, while a Formula Renault 2000 Eurocup will be organized in 2004.
