I thought the Aragon race was a multi year deal, hence the question. Is that ok with you Bella? I'll make sure to run any future questions past you first

In 2016, the Eurocup had 7 rounds and the NEC had 7 rounds.

In 2017, the Eurocup has 10 rounds.

I get the impression that the NEC will be dropped.

That's a bit harsh peebee2, she has got a bit of pace about her, i did expect a bit more from her this year, she lost her way a bit from mid season in my opinion, but she was hardly trailing around miles off the back was she.

She didn't qualify all that well most of the time, although with so many crashes and full course yellows the races were a crapshoot if you were stuck in the pack.

Half of those clash with the Eurocup, so I don't see too many drivers bothering with it.

NEC isn't, and never has been, organised by Renault Sport. So, of course, the promoters will keep trying but it's becoming more and more of a backwater in the face of the FIA-driven F4.

there's a market for it for sure, there's a couple of drivers who do nec with some eurocup wildcard entries as a precursor to a full eurocup year, there's people like bm racing and a few others that fell out of my head who run single cars, and teams who own the cars but don't often find people to run in them. it's the only series offering somewhere to race those cars in europe that isn't the eurocup, and it's not a bad calendar at all.

you'd hope they'd be able to average 15 cars a race at least, even if it makes it hard for all but the biggest teams to do both that and eurocup for different drivers.

Incorrect. http://www.vdev.fr/

They generally averaged above 20 cars as well, with the finale at Estoril having 22 current-gen FR2.0s: http://www.vdev.fr/datas/media/581dc...ce-1-cumul.pdf

Yes but NEC is a low level series for aspiring pro racers.

With all due respect Vdev is club racing with a mix of young and old pilots.

agree, it's not really the same though in fairness there were several teams who swapped between nec and the vdev series this year, from that timesheet formula motorsport, ts corse and possibly gsk all did at least one nec race.

I was correcting the statement about those cars not being used elsewhere.

Call it "club" if you wish, but they do a better job of cost-effective racing. Peroni didn't have any problems being competitive in Eurocup.
