Renault Sport Racing is pleased to announce the arrival of GP Extreme as a partner of the Formula Renault Eurocup beginning with the 2019 season.
A key player in motorsport in the Middle East, GP Extreme has also been involved in the Renault Sport Racing customer racing programmes for several years.
This collaboration first resulted in the support of drivers entered in the Renault Sport Trophy before the team campaigned Renault Sport R.S.01s in high-profile endurance races around the world. It will now be a major partner of the Formula Renault Eurocup.
Greatly involved in the support of young drivers in their careers, GP Extreme will deepen its links with Renault Sport Racing in supporting, from 2019, the Formula Renault Eurocup, a globally recognized programme for preparing the next generation of talents for the highest levels of motorsport.
GP Extreme will appear on the livery of all the cars entered in the Formula Renault Eurocup as well as on the driver racing suits and the category’s communication platforms. The joint actions in the Formula Renault Eurocup will culminate at the final race weekend of the season in Abu Dhabi, where GP Extreme’s local experience will be an asset for the Formula Renault Eurocup.
