Renault Sport Academy Drivers Max Fewtrell, Jarno Opmeer and Sun Yue Yang will make their final appearance of 2017 as the curtain of the Formula Renault Eurocup comes down in Barcelona this weekend (27-29 October).
Three races are on offer for the Eurocupers in Catalunya who have not raced since Spa-Francorchamps one month ago.
Fewtrell goes for rookie title
Max Fewtrell holds an 18-point lead in the rookie standings as he seeks clinching a second title in two years. Max, British F4 Champion in 2016, needs to keep rivals Dan Ticktum and Yifei Ye behind throughout the weekend if he is to take the rookie crown.
Last time out in Belgium, Max took a fifth, fourth and ninth place across the triple-header which saw him extend his advantage over compatriot Ticktum. Max is only one of four drivers to have finished every race this season in the Eurocup.
Opmeer aiming to finish on a high
Jarno Opmeer is on a bright run of form as he targets a positive end to his rookie season in the Eurocup.
Jarno has enjoyed four points scoring finishes in five races, with race three in Spa providing the Dutchman with a season-best result of sixth.
The 17-year-old competed in the final round of the Formula Renault NEC series (October 7-8), finishing fourth and seventh.
Sunny searching for first points
Sun Yue Yang is looking forward to completing his maiden season in single-seater racing as he goes after finding his first points of the year.
Sunny will be aiming to replicate his form at the beginning of the season which saw him secure 16th place finishes at Monza and Silverstone.

6th, 1st Rookie - 146 points – 20/23 races completed
"It’s a big weekend and the 2017 rookie title is up for grabs. I need to get everything right from first practice until the last lap of race three and nail down some consistent results. I’ve driven Barcelona on the simulator and it’s a track I like ; it flows quite well and there are a few overtaking opportunities. I’m really looking forward to getting out there and hoping for a positive weekend."

15th, 7th Rookie – 15 points – 20/23 races completed
“I’m looking forward to this weekend as this is one of my favourite tracks to drive. Barcelona features some fast and long corners which are challenging but also a lot of fun. I hope to get as many points as possible this weekend and continuing the good run of form.”
Sun Yue Yang (JD Motorsport, #21)
30th, 17th Rookie – 0 points – 20/23 races completed
“I’m really excited to getting out to Barcelona. In Spa, I learnt about the brake shape and the way to fight in the crowd. I think this weekend I can make some progress especially in qualifying. I’ll continue to take things cautiously, but I hope to have a positive weekend and I will be aiming for top fifteen.”
