With final preparations for its free 110,000-spectator World Series motorsport celebration this weekend (4th and 5th July) at Silverstone well under way, one hundred and twenty miles south, Renault is focusing on the Goodwood Festival of Speed, held the same weekend. Renault’s illustrious motorsport heritage has been regularly demonstrated at Goodwood since the mid-90s, so this year the French marquee will concentrate on its environmental and technological prowess. The two most recent Renault concept cars, offering low or no emissions, plus a pristine 1959 electric Dauphine are all set to bask in the Sussex sunshine and delight the crowds. Concept cars take to the hill As part of its global Alliance with Nissan, Renault has already said it aims to be the mass-market leader for zero-emission vehicles. To underline this in the lead-up to its first production electric vehicle in 2011, Renault’s two concept cars, Ondelios and Kangoo Z.E. (Zero Emission), which wowed the Paris Motor Show last autumn, will take pride of place in Goodwood’s ‘FoS–TECH’ pavilion. Away from the somewhat cooler, shaded sanctuary of the pavilion, the two concept cars will also be seen in action each day of the Festival as they tackle the famous Goodwood Hillclimb in a series of demonstration drives.
