Partner of the "Ice Driving Val Thorens" driving school, Renault Sport giving drivers and trainee racing drivers the chance to test the qualities of Clio R.S. and Twingo GT on the Alain Prost ice-racing track.
After the Trophée Andros race – held there last weekend – the Val Thorens track is now open to all, as the activities of the driving school resume. With support and guidance from professional monitors, drivers can acquire the right reflexes to ensure they tackle wintry conditions in complete safety.
In partnership with Renault Sport, the "Ice Driving Val Thorens" driving school uses Clio R.S. and Twingo GT – fitted with studded Continental tyres – for their driving lessons. At 760 metres in length, the technical yet accessible track provides real thrills and excitement, regardless of the skill level of the drivers.
"We are delighted to add Val Thorens to the eight tarmac tracks that are already Renault Sport partners," explained Eric Bernard, Sales and Marketing Director, Renault Sport Cars. "Clio R.S. and Twingo GT are, by nature, fun cars to drive. On ice, they take on another personality, whilst losing nothing of their playful side. This partnership will equally enable Renault dealerships to offer potential customers of Clio R.S. and Twingo GT test drives in extreme conditions."
