ELF has partnered for 10 years with Renault Sport Technologies (RST) and has a very close relationship on all technical, sports and commercial levels.
After developing the most efficient programs for single-seaters, Renault Sport Technologies aims to roll out a new offering for hatches. Positioned between the Clio Cup events and professional championships, such as the WEC, DTM and Japanese Super GT, the Renault Sport Trophy is a gateway for the best pilots and for gentleman drivers.
The 2015 season will be open to twenty “Pro-Am” teams, classified according to the rules of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). At World Series by Renault meetings, competitors will be able to maximize their time on the track by taking part in a real monotype championship called Renault Sport Trophy.
