It is no coincidence, then, that the Sandero R.S. made its first public appearance at the Copa de las Marcas Petrobras, an event in which Renault was making its return after an eight-year absence and which pits together models derived from popular production vehicles made by broad-line car manufacturers. The marque entered a Renault Fluence for the event, with Brazilian Formula One legend Rubens Barrichello at the wheel.
Elsewhere, Renault Argentina has been supporting the French marque’s single-seater formulas for more than 35 years now. Representing a springboard to the upper echelons of motorsport at national and then international level, they have already provided some 1,500 drivers with valuable experience.
Renault Argentina also plays an active role in rally, taking part in the Dakar Rally between 2013 and 2015, with the support of Renault Sport. The event gave the Renault Duster an outstanding platform across Argentina, Chile, Peru and Bolivia.
