Explanation of Renault Formula 2000

Renault Formula 2000 is the latest Formula product from Renault Sport, Renault's racing department. Among the many 2000c.c. formulas around the world, the Renault Formula 2000 is the most advanced. Renault, since the launch of the first Renault Formula 2000 in 1971, has been almost thirty years, and what we see today is the sixth generation. Over the past three decades, many famous drivers have driven the Renault Formula to compete, and Prost, a four-time Formula 1 world champion, is the most outstanding. The sixth-generation Renault Formula 2000 is the most advanced of its kind, the body is made of the same carbon fiber as the Formula 1, and the safety level is sufficient to meet the standards set by the International Automobile Federation for the third-level Formula racing cars.


●Even torque distribution

The power comes from Renault's F4RS-type engine. This engine is developed according to "Renault Sport", in the technology development of the third-class Formula engine, and equipped with Magneti Marelli's fourth-generation electronic engine management system. The maximum horsepower and maximum torque are 181ps/6,300rpm and 21.7kgm/5,300rpm respectively; the figures may seem plain, but think about pushing a car body that weighs only 480kg, it's indeed overly powerful. The characteristic of this engine is that the torque distribution is extremely even. Drivers can use the mid-to-high rotation torque, and it is the first in its class to use a Sequential six-speed gearbox. In terms of operation, it is superior. And this Sequential six-speed gearbox is specially designed by "Renault Sport", with three different gear ratios to suit different track characteristics, while also reducing the operational cost for racing drivers.


●More reliable chassis package

The suspension system is similar to other Formula race cars, the front suspension uses a single-cylinder shock absorber and a spring, while the rear suspension uses separate left and right shock absorbers and springs. Moreover, “Renault Sport” has made a new design on the rocker arm matching position, which is easier to adjust, and when an accident occurs, the damage to the body of the car can also be reduced at the same time. In terms of braking, all four wheels use ventilated discs and ALCON four-piston opposing calipers, and independent routing is used to ensure the power of the brakes, making the brake system more reliable.


●Aerodynamic body design

On the car body, "Renault Sport" is specially designed according to the principles of aerodynamics, combined with the powerful engine horsepower output, whether it is racing on a straight line or high-speed cornering, it can perform its best stability function. In addition, the downwelling design of its front wing combined with the rear compound fixed wing is similar to today's Formula 1. The production of Renault Formula 2000 is tentatively set at only one hundred and fifty. It is prepared for the touring races to be held in various European countries. As for the Asia-Pacific region, only the FRD Formula Development Co., Ltd., with its good relationship with "Renault Sport", obtained fifteen quotas. The twelve participating in this Renault Formula 2000 competition in China are among them.
