remember "world series by renault" and "formula renault 3.5" aren't the same thing. they explain world series by renault isn't going to the uk. we've known that since the calendar came out.

Thanks, hadnt thought of that, so there is still hope that the 3.5's will visit the uk.

anyway the statement from renault on the world series facebook page below

"World Series by Renault is expanding to new countries. For budgetary reasons for the teams participating, the series cannot presently be expanded, so one existing event will have to be dropped from the calendar in 2012....

In summer 2012, Britain will host the Olympic Games, involving a major infrastructure of human and logistical resources. Therefore, it was felt to be desirable to hold World Series by Renault during this time.

The decision not to hold a World Series by Renault meeting in the UK in 2012 has been taken jointly by Renault Sport Technologies and Renault UK
."

I think they missed a "not" out of the statement.

I think so too!

They certainly did say on the final Eurosport magazine programme that they'd be back in the UK with F.Renault 3.5 as a support race.

You've said the first part of that so often that it's drilled into my brain!

then at least some of my flapping isn't in vain it's amazing how many don't notice the difference, particularly some very prominent drivers press officers. it's a very obvious sign of those who don't care about the quality of their work and their clients.

back on the missing out the uk thing, it will be very interesting to see whether they carry the momentum through to 2013, and what sort of people come back after a years break. will the... casual spectators have forgotten about it? it'll be interesting to see.

on the other hand hopefully it doesn't affect the involvement of some of the sponsors. the massive crowd at silverstone is a real draw, and a great example of how you can spread your message better on the ground with freebies and event association better than you can with a name on the side of a f1 car.

With LMS would be good, I can't see the series taking a support role to any of the SRO series as it's at a higher level.

No news on Van der Drift, but I've heard Hartley is still crashing into things.

We stumbled across Epic testing in Spain last week. Wondered if it was driver evaluations but not sure.

Hartley more likely in GP2 but unlikely to return to 3.5....

Van Der Drift, the best New Zealander by far at present, has no funding to shout about so he'll once again have to rely on last minute deals or hope some kind of patronage materialises.

Adri_tifosi - they were at Calafat. I don't know my liveries well enough, it was an Epic transporter.

As far I know DAMS is using the 3.5 cars. People from DAMS were at Barcelona during the last race , checking the cars and equipment with Epic people.

And 2.0 cars are stop, so probably was DAMS.
