          Series Info

          The Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Series is part of the World Series by Renault. It is seen as the natural step up from the Formula Renault 2.0 UK series to which it is similar in terms of car specifications. As the name suggests, teams compete across Europe, supporting the majority of Formula Renault 3.5 races with the exception of Monza and Monaco.  

          The Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 takes place over seven race weekends, all of which are part of the World Series by Renault programme. With 36 cars taking their places on the grid, traffic on the track can often be dense, which is why the field is split into two groups during qualifying. With fierce competition on the grid, drivers compete over two qualifying sessions and two races on the world stage to over a hundred thousand spectators per race weekend with races shown live on various television channels across the globe. 

          Launched in 1971, Formula Renault has become an important stepping stone for young drivers to break in to the Motorsport industry. Over the years, a succession of drivers have graced the category on their climb to Formula One with names such as Alain Prost, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa. 

          Fortec in series 

          Fortec, after joining the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 championship in 2008, have quickly developed claiming third in the championship for three consecutive years from 2011 to 2013. In 2012, Racing Steps Foundation backed driver, Oliver Rowland, took third in the championship following Will Stevens’ finish in fourth the previous year. 2013 saw Jake Dennis, another Steps Foundation driver, finish the championship in fourth.
